  • The Web API

    Wherever there were Windows PCs in businesses, there’s now the web. Wherever there were peripherals connected to that PC, there’s a need for a new peripheral… just the same, but with a simple web API. Every time you see a dated PC, only running the back-office because of the peripherals hanging off it, there’s a product opportunity.

  • RIP Tony Benn

    If one meets a powerful person -- Rupert Murdoch, perhaps, or Joe Stalin or Hitler -- one can ask five questions:
    1. What power do you have?
    2. Where did you get it?
    3. In whose interests do you exercise it?
    4. To whom are you accountable?
    5. And, how can we get rid of you?
    Anyone who cannot answer the last of those questions does not live in a democratic system.
