The trouble with having an early grasp of the likely impact of technology, and having a blog called The Obvious, is that you have to bite your lip ten years later when it only then becomes obvious to everyone else!
The wonders of nature
On my walk this morning in grey, drizzly weather I heard this really weird, deep, whooshing sound. It was quite disturbing, especially in the gloomy, moody weather.
And then I realised what it was. It was a murmuration of starlings flying around in formation and moving a lot of air.
Yesterday I was watching people getting excited online about the new Apple TV+ series Silo and then realised that my daughter Mollie was a featured extra in it!
She only says a couple of words but being in a significant scene with Rebecca Ferguson and Tim Robbins, is pretty cool.
She has also written several plays, the most recent of which will performed on the Brighton Fringe.
She is seeking crowdfunding so if anyone feels inclined to support a young aspiring writer…

Happy birthday blog
21years. Would have been hard to imagine keeping going this long when I first set up my blog on blogger.com all those years ago.
Big Data My Arse
Sadly Shell’s database that tells their app that my newly installed “smart” meter doesn’t work isn’t connected to their marketing database that is still sending me cheesy emails about how much I must be enjoying being better informed about our electricity usage.
