I got lucky last week and filled up with petrol on Thursday just before our comfortable little world spun into a new form of societal panic.
We tend to take our modern western world for granted; just expecting everything to crack on as usual because usual is normal and normal is to be expected. But our modern world is now run right at the margin so that small things going wrong are able to create big problems.
Too little fuel and society grinds to a halt. Too much virus and pretty much everything stops. Too much CO2 and our world disappears forever. We need to plan more to protect us from the too much or too little of something that will pop up now and then – especially if we don’t.
A few weeks ago, Voipfone had a moment of too much when we had a biblical flood of data thrown at our network. We are now planning for more too much and others are too.
Chaos seems to be the new normal.
In similar news, I have a glut of tomatoes.

I’m struggling to remember when I first heard the term ‘cloud’; I know it made… Read More

The psychologists tell us that Zoom fatigue is now a thing. I can’t say I’m surprised. You also know something has become a ‘thing’ when it acquires an acronym and appears increasingly in new meejya. But WFH (working from home) is now in the Cambridge English Dictionary. It would have taken on the usage of… Read More

Video conferencing is increasingly getting me down. Before COVID we had phone conferences for business which were fine, they didn’t require any technology, just dial into a number. They didn’t mess with your life too much, you could do it with a three-day beard while making a cup of coffee and scratching your backside if… Read More
