Northern Lights Extravaganza in Iceland:

northernlights-breiddalsvik_psConditions for viewing the northern lights in Iceland last night were spectacular with exceptionally clear skies and high Auroral activity.

(Via Iceland Review)

Well I could soon put a stop to all that. All I need to do is just hop on a plane to Keflavik and I can guarantee 100% cloud cover, drizzle, and blown fuses in all Aurora activation circuits.

Of course they’d start up again the day I left.

Anyway what’s the big bloody deal ? For one, all Aurora photos look exactly the same, and for another, the sky’s not supposed to be that colour anyway. Load of fuss over nothing if you ask me. Which you didn’t.


Juniper Report: Finding Catholics in the Vatican ?

Now, we all politely pretend that we don't know that most corporate research reports are completely useless overblown, over-hyped doorstops aimed at helping the blind to lead the blind (or attract VC money), but this one really takes it to the next level... does anybody really need a report to work out how to sell, ahem, adult content ? juniper.jpg

Waffle 2.0

This is priceless. This guy, Robert Scoble, who apparently is a world famous communicator is waffling on and on about something or the other to do with social applications (don't bother - there must be some interesting paint to watch dry somewhere). scoble.jpg This screenshot is taken from a sequence where he is talking into a crackly microphone and scribbling on a whiteboard. We cannot see his face (although we get a great shot of his, er, waistline), and we can't see what he's writing on the whiteboard. And he puts this stuff on line. And he has legions of fans. Content ? Zilch. Production values ? Zilch. Ah. Oops. This is the US version of "The Office", isn't it ? God I'm so gullible.
