The original Google!

Just found a very old pic on the laptop from 2006. I saw this in a charity shop somewhere in middle England. It just shows that Google existed before those guys in Mountain View ! The book is from 1913 published by Oxford University Press.

Who is your favourite baddie?

In homage to the Doctors 50th anniversary, for Gumtree we [SeSoMe] lined-up our favourite baddies.

The Daleks and Davros are synonymous with The Doctor, and have been voted the ‘best’ baddie of all time by fans. However, we at SeSoMe think the Weeping Angels are the most sinister and scary.  Who gets your hiding behind your sofa?

The My Destination annual conference

This time round the ‘family meet-up’ in a swanky hotel in Bangkok, Thailand. It was an increadibly intense week of presentations, workshops, discussions, and some socialising.

I just wanted to share 2 photos.

1. The most opulent room I have ever run a workshop in – just shows the scale of the Mandarin Oriental hotel or how important I am?!

And. 2. The closing party was fancy dress. Can you spot which one was me?

TED Video: We are all cyborgs now

I watched this video while waiting for the motorcycle breakdown recovery people with <1% battery on my phone and watching people stream out of the train station with phones glued to their ears, mobile in the 'compass' position and people still watching videos on their tablets. Everyone walking, in order, heads down. And then watching this video it struck a nerve.

Look around on your commute in tomorrow and you will see this new anthropological view on the world.
