In one way or another I’ve been writing about tech for about two decades now, starting with “ebusiness” (remember that?) pages in Estates Gazette, and eventually moving into my blog, as well as places as diverse as Computer Weekly and the NEXT conference blog.
Never have I wanted to write about consumer tech as little as I do right now. Wherever you turn, there’s another negative article about the impact it is having on our lives. Some of that backlash is deserved. Most of it is over-kill, a neoluddite urge finding form in a conservative media who feel under threat and under siege.
All of which means: I’ve tried to avoid too many tech-related links below. There are much more interesting things to spend time thinking about.
