The Driving Penalty Points Problem

November 20th, 2014 · No Comments

It’s safe to assume that in the next 10-20 years, a decent percentage of people – maybe 5-10% – will wear cameras that constantly record their surroundings. Such cameras already exist, of course, but they’re clunky and low-resolution; the ones we’ll see in the future will have a much better resolution and field of view, [...]

10 apps the BBC should make

March 27th, 2014 · 4 Comments

Over the years, the BBC — which started as a radio service — has chosen to move into new, risky platforms including television, home computing, and the internet. It’s safe to say that we’re all quite happy with how those ventures turned out, so my question is, why stop there? The BBC should raise its [...]

Meaning and Magic on a Disney Cruise: Part 2

June 6th, 2010 · 1 Comment

Read Part 1 here…
Day 3: Valletta (Malta)
Malta isn’t a place that I would go out of my way to visit. Its capital, Valletta, has plenty of charm and interesting architecture – a legacy from the incessant invasions and occupations by Greeks, Romans, Sicilians, French, British, and a bunch of other people you haven’t heard of [...]

Meaning and Magic on a Disney Cruise: Part 1

June 2nd, 2010 · 8 Comments

Over the next couple of weeks, I’m going to be posting about my 11 night Mediterranean cruise on the Disney Magic, and other Disney-related thoughts. I’m also (slowly) uploading photos to my Flickr.
On a Disney cruise, you never stop hearing about the fantastic time you’re having. Wasn’t last night’s Captain’s dinner just delicious? Didn’t you love [...]

San Francisco

Mr. Otis and Mr. Schindler…

December 28th, 2007 · 3 Comments

For the benefit of those who don’t subscribe to my Twitter feed, or don’t know what Twitter is (almost everyone), I heard a funny and mysterious message while on the plane from Toronto to London. We’d landed only minutes earlier and were taxiing to the terminal when a flight attendant said:
We have a message for [...]

Berlin Calling

November 20th, 2007 · 3 Comments

Three people – a doctor, the CTO of an up-and-coming web company, and the CEO of an up-and-coming 3D game engine company – have independently told me the same thing in the last month. It’s time to move to Berlin.
In any discussion of where I work and what I do, the subject of London’s frustratingly [...]

Where’s Adrian? (The Return)

September 21st, 2007 · 2 Comments

Over the next three months, I’m going to be travelling to six different countries.
Amsterdam (Sept 25th-29th): I’m speaking at the PICNIC Academy about ARGs on either Tuesday or Wednesday (pay no attention to their schedule, they’re moving things around). I’ll also be around for the rest of the conference, including Come Out and Play.
Brussels (Oct [...]

A Dream of Madness

June 27th, 2007 · No Comments

During a tour of the Pearl River Delta region of China, for one night I stayed at a place called the Ocean Spring Resort. It’s a new holiday resort surrounding a famous hot spring, with hotels, a theme park, spas, health centres, water features, pretty much everything that a resort needs. Oh, and it’s massive. [...]
