A really intelligent blog contribution from someone who is a weird kind of Tory-Lib Dem hybrid as far as I can make out. Here goes: I was always under the impression the intention of matching 15% of US commitment in order to earn Framework Nation Status with the command input that entails. If we take…Read More Quality comment
So YPlan. It’s a neat enough proposition. Basically, it’s a way of getting rid of spare tickets, or if it gets big enough, guaranteeing a minimum sale. It buys up what’s left. It asks new users some questions and runs a weighted Bayesian classifier to guess what they might accept and pushes recommendations to them.…Read More The threat of preference modification

This was a bit of a surprise to me, what with News reorganising to separate the UK papers…Read More Get involved.
So, did ya ever want to know social network analysis metrics on the Department for Culture, Media, and Sport’s special advisers during the spring of 2011, as Rupert Murdoch’s interests in the UK feverishly lobbied Jeremy Hunt and his staff and we raced towards the epochal eruption of Hackgate? ‘Course you did. In June, 2011,…Read More Hunt, through a non-sexist prism
Here’s the funny bit in this post: Charming. @metpoliceuk go on record to admit they are actually as suspected, a gang. Be afraid kids. #acab pic.twitter.com/HzfHmC1Q — Vicki (@Iamverysmart) January 12, 2013 OK, that done, a senior detective has been found guilty of leaking the phone-hacking investigation to the NoTW. This is the nut of…Read More Public Affairs, the movie: three gang theory in action
Pretty much everyone in the mobile business loves “m-health” these days. There are a couple of reasons for this – they imagine there’s money in it, it’s great CSR/public relations/lobby fodder, and it’s the sort of thing futurists chinstroke about. But I think we’re all barking up the wrong tree. Here’s the problem. The typical…Read More M-Health apps that don’t suck.
Here’s a photo from a MoD-BAE Systems study into future armoured vehicles for the British Army*. OK, so we’ve got some heavy-to-medium, wheeled armoured vehicles, that are clearly battery-electric drive. They’re recharging from either wind power (on the right) or from some kind of deployable, containerised nuclear reactor (on the left – note the radhaz…Read More it began in the time of our grandfathers, but no-one now knows why
It looks like Daniel Davies’ plan to classify the world into people who file their accounts with Companies House on time, and people who don’t, may be less eccentric than it seems. News International missed, and asked for an extension. Obviously a dodgy lot of bastards. Anyway, check this quote out. Coincidentally, News International’s company…Read More Companies House Webcheck, fount of moral judgment. And a full list of USSD code numbers, at last
Well, speak of the devil. Peter Foster makes his appearance in the Murdoch scandal and fingers the Sun directly. He said he then received an email from a Dublin-based private investigator calling himself ”Autarch”, who told Mr Foster he tapped into his mother’s phone in December 2002. That month, The Sun published the ”Foster tapes”,…Read More the missing link between slimming tea and tactical electronic warfare
I thought it might be interesting to establish some timeline information about News International e-mail disclosures and deletions, in the light of this piece in the Torygraph.
