It's difficult to describe the bewildering amount of change in the technology space over the last decade in a single diagram ... however, undeterred I've tried to catch the fundamentals ...
Same patterns are occurring. In 2008, the future giants of media were Netflix (focused on the user, cloud and reducing assets) not the Blockbusters (focused on cashflow, building stores and data centres). Ditto today. The future giants of robotics are companies like iRobot.
It's always a hoot to go through those past Blockbuster presentations from 2007 to 2008 ... the self belief, the investment in assets, the hubris, the mindless strategy that was bereft of any understanding of basic economic patterns.

So. It says in the 'Life in the UK' test book that 1066 was the last successful foreign conquest of England. Which neglects or fully anglicizes Matilda and 1139 and the regency invasion of Isabella in 1326. Oh also the very successful invasion of 1688-9.

testing is going well...
wow their account of the first settlement of the Irish Pale is just offensive.
I am going to livetweet my experience of this 'history' book I am required to read.

Aujourd'hui, j'ai plein de trucs à faire.... En conséquence de quoi je vais faire des expérimentations en cuisine, bien sûr :D.

Je veux faire des bouchées vapeur, j'ai divisé ma farce en 4, et j'essaie plusieurs façons de les cuire. Ici : couvertes de riz qui cuira vapeur avec.
C'est normal, la différence de taille. J'en ai fait une trop petite, une trop grande, et quelques moyennes, pour voir les différences de cuisson de la farce.

Pour les autres 3/4 de farce, je ne sais pas encore ce que je vais essayer, c'est yolo (probablement du papier de riz) !
Première fournée, cuite 10mn vapeur et alors… Si ma farce est une tuerie (sérieux) et cuite en 10mn, le riz, ça n'a pas du tout marché :'D...

Il est croquant. j'ai remis une des grandes et une moyenne à cuire pour voir. Fournée suivante en papier de riz, plus prometteuse #KrCu

In case you haven't yet read @gailfdavies' fantastic tweets on the role of consultants in embedding a particular vision of 'flexible retirement' as the norm in universities, start with tweet below & then follow the tweets -- & links -- to the present #ucustrike #ussstrike
Inspired by @gailfdavies & @CLIVEYB's reflections, I've been thinking about how to understand the last decade or so in terms of discourses & practices around risk, collectivity, flexibility etc. in relation to university pensions #notallgeographers #USSstrike #ucustrike 1/
I've been tracking through the docs on pensions available on Universities UK website. Oldest document appears to be "Strategic enquiry into the pension arrangements for the higher education sector" published 2007… 2/ #ussstrike #ucustrike

1/ THREAD: The Spiritual Dimensions of #QAnon - In order to understand this, you need to transcend your own thinking, or expand your thinking and take the 40,000 ft view, as Q is fond of saying.
2/ By this, I mean to say that it doesn't matter what you, I or we believe. It matters what *they* believe. And *they* can believe some very silly things. Elites gobble up the new age gobbledygook like podestas at a pizza party.
3/ Let's assume the elites are very much in line with the Pike Doctrine of duality - that there is one God (Adonai), and another god (Lucifer). This can mean that there are no other gods, or Lucifer is using other deities as a culturally specific avatar.
