To Whom It May Concern, I would hereby like to apply for the job listed. As you’ll see from my attached résumé, my skills are more than adequate for the role, my references speak for themselves and my portfolio of work is, you’ll be forced to admit, impressive. But I have one more selling-point, one more arrow in my quiver: my crotch. The verdant jungles of my crotch. The jungles of...

For you people with your postcard-sending sprees: an app for shooting a photo, personalising a message and having it turned into postcard which is delivered the next day, starting at 99c a postcard. Nice idea for impromptu photo sending to grandparents the old fashioned way.
One of the more interesting aspects of job interviews I enjoy is getting to chat with people above my pay grade, as well as to the lower-level (my level) techies. Yesterday I got to spend a solid hour just chatting with a Managing Director of a firm who’re handling the majority of the European Newpaper Conglomerates’ move from a single publishing stream (journalist → print media) to...

Am dealin’ wit’ da Russians.– My first tweet, for better or worse, 6:29 AM Jun 13th, 2007.
It was hot. Very hot. When you tell people you’re working in Moscow they tend to nod and ask how’re you’re going to handle the cold. “It’s summer there,” I’d say. “It’s 35 degrees celsius most days.” We’d been waiting outside the Metro entrance for about 10 minutes. She worked for our client company and spoke very little English....

We’d just finished a game of Scrabble in the pub, during which my housemate had bought some Wasabi peas, only there were too many peas to eat so he just scooped them up into his hands and we walked home like that (he with hands cupped full of wasabi peas) but I didn’t have my front-door keys and he couldn’t reach into his pocket with hands brimming full with peas to get his keys,...

You are my favourite.
Watching me drink coffee in a British Starbucks is pretty much the lamest thing you can do. Really. Plus side: you might see a big, red London bus! Edit: All finished now. If you missed it, don’t worry - I’m sure to be bored enough to do it again at some point.

I woke up this morning with a browser tab on my laptop open with the definition of ‘bootblack’ and no memory or idea why, and after 12 hours of it being open I’m honestly afraid of closing it because why was it open why why why.
My anagram name is “I MADE BRIEF, GENTLE LOVE TO YOUR FATHER”. Haha, no, but seriously, what happened with your father was anything but gentle.
Sitting in a Starbucks and deciding to email a potential employer, only to find that the only free Wifi access provider is your most recent employer and that you need to log in using a Web Application you spent 18 months designing, writing and implementing front-to-back. (Which, by the way, works fucking flawlessly. FIVE, UP HIGH! FIVE! SOMEONE? NO-ONE? N… No-one? Alright. Phillistines.)
Well, gosh. Turns out that random Augmented Reality stuff I did a while back, combined with some Android messing around I’ve been doing, has come to the attention of a ‘multi-disciplinary, cultural and technological collective’ and suddenly I’m signing an NDA and have an interview with them. So… that’s weird. My life is quite interesting, sometimes, and I am...
