Informational mould.

The internet, so far, it might argued has not helped people communicate. It has introduced new levels of secrecy, unreality and formality to the matter of communicating with your fellow humans. This document is a case in point.

One can develop various ice-breaking policies, the most important of which is probably persistent honesty.

Internet can be icy, but I find the worst internet ice is Spam, it sort of grows in big blocky icicles all over the place in dead areas of the…

Are you telling me it definitely couldn't have been arson?

Like, you could absolutely prove in the mid-19th century that a fire was *not* deliberate. I mean, not a lot was left of a burned out building, especially a big one full of flammables and paper...

Certainly not un-suspicious if the building were the government building of an imperial superpower, and the building contained masses and masses of various government records and such related to the takeover of the East India Trading Co and so…

London does not have a housing problem it has a rich people problem.  The decimation of Soho and Camden is just one side of it.  The other is the tragic evictions taking place everywhere from Barnet to Brixton and the record numbers of people sleeping on London’s streets.

Nobody wants this vandalism except for the…

the iPhone 6 bends.

If you look at the issue, looking at the phone sideways allows you to see the amount of material depth supporting that area, where those two buttons are there is only a thin metal strip above the button which is subject to stretching, the loss of resistance due to aluminium work hardening under stretching which reduces the actual structural thickness to just the back plate and the little bit of metal joining the back plate to the button cutaway.

This could…

War is a Racket – US Army Major Smedley Butler, 1935

WAR is a racket. It always has been.

It is possibly the oldest, easily the most profitable, surely the most vicious. It is the only one international in scope. It is the only one in which the profits are reckoned in dollars and the losses in lives.

A racket is best described, I believe, as something that is not what it seems to the majority of the people. Only a small "inside" group knows what it is about. It is conducted for the benefit of the very few, at the expense of the…

Thus proceeds the infantilization of the American public, hooked more than ever on superficial, unchecked information sometimes rewritten from more reliable, though uncredited sources. It’s no coincidence that Google, Yahoo!, Bing, and Yelp sound like toddler gibberish from the Teletubbies.

Whenever I hear these silly corporate names invoked with sanctimonious awe, I imagine Dipsy, Laa-Laa, Po, and Tinky-Winky singing their hit single “Teletubbies say ‘Eh-oh’ ” as they shake the…

IMF spam

The International Monetary Fund's top economist, Olivier Blanchard, has acknowledged that the fund blew its forecasts for Greece and other European economies because it did not fully understand how government austerity efforts would undermine economic growth.

In October 2012 the IMF admitted austerity measures were causing economic damage which was as much as three times the amount originally forecast. And in this latest paper, they are standing by their initial conclusions, but say…

GCHQ are hiring

CT Research

The world is changing. Fast. Every day brings new technological advances. New ways to communicate that offer greater potential to share information - and potentially pose a greater threat. So we constantly need to be aware of emerging technologies, of how we can use them to our advantage, and how to protect the UK from the risks they could pose.

Carrying out pioneering research across a wide range of technologies, our teams work to develop innovative techniques…
