Embedding Running Into Daily Life

One of the things I’m keen on doing is making running, or even walking, a more embedded part of our lifestyle. Earlier this year we got a new car, 5 kids now basically means we need a van.  The problem is we kept hold of our old car too.  The plan was to sell it

In It For The Long Game

I’ve mostly been living life with the view of the long game.  I don’t always get it right, and there are always things I need to work on.  But my mindset is there. I just wish other businesses, government and education establishments would take the same view.  Everything is about ‘now’ and I believe that

Tracking after uninstalling apps

I have a problem that I want to learn so much about things and never have the time.  I’m intrigued by ethics atm and in my daily reading activities I keep coming across things that break what I feel is crossing the ethics line. Uninstall tracking may violate Apple and Google policies against ad-focused use

A Modest Privacy Protection Proposal

I’m feeling increasingly uncomfortable about privacy and ethics of tech companies (and people!).  Mostly posting this here as a reminder for myself to revisit shortly. It’s hard to retain much privacy in the information age — the internet has a nearly perfect limitless memory and we’re placing a ton of sensitive data onto it. After being swatted in

Designing personal life around work

The idea that business is about making money or profit now feels stupid to me. As time has passed, I realise that of course we need to make money, but what I want more of is the ability to change people’s lives. I care little about making lots of money, I’m more interested in a

This Week Has Been About Tiredness

Often, I feel like I shouldn’t write about these things, because…first world problems. But sometimes life just catches you. This week I got tired.  Mostly life is pretty non-stop and I get frustrated that I just can’t seem to find the time for myself.  Not running as much for the past 3 weeks hasn’t helped.

Humane Design

It’s great to see a trend of humane design happening.  This is very much aligned with ethics too.  An area that I would like to study more, and one that I believe we apply at MoT. We now live in a world of technology pervasively vying for our attention. This is causing increased levels of

Powerhouses controlling all the links

An interesting read from Rand Fishkin: In the last five years, there has not been a single major website or dominant web property that has embraced, rewarded, or significantly grown their outlinking. We’ve reached an era of a less-connected web, a web focused on retaining users rather than sharing content. The blogosphere still holds on,

Daytime Sleeping Efficiency for Piper

Piper is almost one and we’ve been figuring out routines, for her, for us as a family and then also figuring out how to fit work in between. We’ve discovered she sleeps really well during the day if we get her to have a nap as close to midday as possible.  Previously she was having

Redefining what publishing ‘stuff’ means to me

Of course, tech changes constantly, there is no denying that. A while back Amy Hoy wrote about how blogs broke the web. Intercom have written about how they’ve killed their blog (in favour of structured content), but ironically are keeping the ‘blog’ URL. So many ‘blogs’ are started, then die just as quickly.  The pressure
