Why I took my laptop on holiday

Yes, you read correctly – this a post about why I took my laptop away with me on holiday (in this case a long weekend break to Woburn Center Parcs) rather than leave it at home. It feels a little counter-intuitive I’m sure since holidays are supposed to be a time for taking a break. But if you give me a second to explain then you’ll see that is exactly the reason why I chuck (/ carefully slip in a

Has social networking killed self-restraint?

Cast your minds back to the time before social networking, back to the days where you only used your mobiles for calls and texts and the internet was somewhere you built basic HTML websites to provide information or amusing animations.  Yes, it is hard remembering that time, but it did once exist.  It was, in many ways, a glorious time because, unlike today, people did not have a way (or indeed feel the need) to share every detail of their
