now y'all can finally see what I look like (hope no one is too scare) 😆
I am sitting on the stairs of my house on two pillows (as it was only reasonable looking background) with the phone at arms length or the front camera "adds weight"
My hair is probably too long and untidy but at my age I'm glad to still have it 😆
took *ages* to get a OK one and had to avoid falling down the stairs..
comments/boosts OK (I doubt anyone is going to want to flirt with this "old uncle")
I'm launching my new disruptive venture today: "Startup Decelerator".
If you are the lucky selected applicant, you are allowed to give me 10,000 AUD for me to tell you to do nothing except think about the possible negative consequences of the technology you are currently developing, for four weeks. Just sit around, think about it, maybe read a book that has nothing to do with what you're working on, drink lots of water, sleep well and do some gardening too.

Heat from (most, maybe Sichuan) Chinese cuisine: layers of heat from a combination of peppers, spices (ginger and many more) and chillies (can be fresh ones, or dried)
Heat from Thai cuisine: HAHAHAHA CHILLIES! LOTS OF EM! FRESH BIRDS EYE CHILLIES! Crisscrossed with intense flavours of torch ginger, lemongrass, Vietnamese coriander… (Mmmmmm, it's good though!)
In Confluence, Ian Teh's sweeping yet sometimes chokingly personal portrait of Malaysia's Selangor coastline, he allies powerful social commentary with details that seem suffused with melancholy.
Everywhere in Ian Teh's photographs, I feel the vulnerability that permeates Roland Barthes' strange yet seminal "Camera Lucida."

The Selangor coastline is unchanging in its foreignness, its difference from Kuala Lumpur. Yet in its conception and its evolution, it represents exactly the arc of Malaysian society. It tells, starkly, the tale of migration, both of arrival and departure, and of carving out a place in the world. The flimsy roadside restaurants and old timber village houses anticipate the passing of things in a strange habit of becoming permanent.

"Hourly nitrogen dioxide concentrations from sites on the London Air Quality Network (LAQN) were compared for the days when the [#ExtinctionRebellion] protests were taking place, to the concentrations on these days of the week when the protests were not taking place."
"The measurements show some evidence of a reduction in nitrogen dioxide concentrations close to locations where roads are closed. None of the monitoring sites are in locations where traffic is completely blocked and reductions in nitrogen dioxide concentrations would be likely to be much larger where no traffic is able to pass at all as has been seen during other road closures. There is little evidence of any significant increase in nitrogen dioxide concentrations in areas neighbouring those where the protests are taking place."
