Eclectic post

Another electric car (I like the pictures of the front from the side).

Still reading the Shackleton book - it starts a little slowly, but I am completely gobsmacked with the conditions these guys faced and the amount of bad-luck that they had...this is one incredible story.

If anyone has accidently deleted there camera pictures then I can recommend using Digital Image Recovery to get them back (I found this because one friend whilst showing off her France holiday pictures to a friend in a somewhat inebriated state managed to have the friend go through each picture - 200 of them - and delete each one individually!!).

Finally, this gives some food for thought.

New books

I've just bought some new books and am wondering which to start with. I figured I would share this list with you, dear reader, so that you can make some random assumptions about me :-) , and also to potentially expose you to some book ideas you might not otherwise have.

Of course, in return for this increased transparency I am interested in reading order suggestions (who knows maybe there IS a right order to read them in for some deeper insights :-) ), and also other reading material suggestions.
  • South - The Endurance Expedition
  • Free Culture - The Nature and Future of Creativity
  • The Eudaemonic Pie
  • Inevitable Illusions - How Mistakes of Reason Rule Our Minds
  • Influence - Science and Practice
  • Maverick - The Success Story Behind the World's Most Unusual Workplace
Anyway, let me know ok.

Blogging distractions

The title says it all!

Things have been getting progressively more hectic this last month and this caused me to not turn my attention to blogging. Anyway, I am back now and the news is that I have left the big corporation that I was working for - handed my phone and laptop and passes and everything over yesterday - phew! So, now the real fun begins about building a business...

Some links that have caught my attention the last couple of days:
