Islands in the (Twitter) stream, that is what we are…

Jenna Wortham writes in the NYT Magazine about how being connected to everybody doesn’t necessarily make us more broadminded. Excerpts: Maybe I shouldn’t have been surprised that Donald Trump could be elected president, but I was. I live in Brooklyn and work in Manhattan, two of the most liberal places in the country. But even Continue Reading

What is this strange exotic mix of natural textures flowing past the domed obstruction? And the answer is…. chicken wire! At least, it’s a fence post to which chicken wire is attached. I photographed it twice using a macro extension tube in the low winter morning light, then stitched the two halves together before doing Continue Reading

Yesterday morning’s dog walk.

The Hybrid Tipping Point

Wed, 23 Nov 2016 10:29:21 +0000

One of the questions I often get asked about my car is, “Is it all-electric, or is it a hybrid?” For most EV owners, the answer to that is easy, but for the BMW i3, it’s a bit more complex. You see, it is a hybrid in the sense that it does have a petrol Continue Reading

On Friday, I was interviewed by phone for the Dublin-based Moncrieff radio show on the Newstalk network. A fun, light-hearted 10-minute phone discussion about the origins of the webcam on what, I realised, must be very close to its 25th anniversary.

Altruistic Autonomous Vehicles

Mon, 31 Oct 2016 09:49:58 +0000

One of my shortest recent posts generated quite a lot of discussion, both here and on Facebook. I wrote: When we have proper and affordable self-driving vehicles, will that be the end of the railways? Clearly there are some things that railways will do better for the foreseeable future, like long-range high-speed links, or carrying Continue Reading

Fall from Olympus

Sat, 29 Oct 2016 10:43:01 +0000

I’ve written elsewhere about the cost of the Olympics, so was struck by this poignant sequence of photos of former Olympic buildings, and this one found via Jessica Bloom’s article here. A Sarajevo ski jump Admittedly, these images are mostly from places that have been through difficult times recently. I’ve visited various Olympic stadia over Continue Reading

It occurs to me that if I were to suffer a minor injury today, perhaps through careless use of a carrot-peeler or (more likely) a soldering iron, it would have the compensation that thereafter I could strip my sleeve and show my scars and say, “These wounds I had on Crispin’s day!” Almost seems worth Continue Reading
