Where do I start?

Here's a blog for all my random thoughts that don't fit into my main blog about Free Culture at Visible Darkness.

When I'm not thinking about Free Culture, especially Free Education (my particular area of expertise), I'm getting angry about the absurdities of modern life and the little injustices that drive me to distraction.

For example:

  • Why is the Conservative Party still a thing?
  • UKIP - what's that all about?
  • Why didn't any bankers go to prison after they destroyed the economy?
  • Why are The Sun and The Daily Mail the biggest selling "newspapers" in the UK?
  • Religion … just why? I don't understand.

You may gather I'm politically on the left and a secular humanist. After a great deal of living and learning this just seems the only reasonable position to hold.

So there we are. Let's see if I can keep this up.


From a technical point of view, I wanted to do something a bit different with this blog so I've used the Anchor blogging platform which is a simple, no nonsense, PHP application. It's Free and Open Source Software and very easy to install. I'm using a hosting company callled Digital Gibbon based in the UK. I've just discovered them and they seem to offer a great service at a fantastic price.
