About the Blog

Posted on

This is where I occasionally post something that seems important enough to put out there. The pages are where I have put some thoughts on areas of interest – and then the relevant posts are listed there for any further interest you might have. The Serious and Trivial Topics over there ? are where the random thoughts and streams of consciousness are. This Blog is mostly for people who know me. Much of the content is fluff. The rest is probably interesting for only some people. Down the very bottom ? there is a tag cloud for things I have tagged. There you go …

You will find discussions about the environment and science here. You will probably find more about Government than you might like to read. That is ok, read what you like and do not read the rest.

If you enjoy something please comment so I know. Otherwise … there are many other places to go.


This page is not really seeking comments. Comments are right down the bottom of the page in the footer, if you are interested. Feel free to offer your thoughts, however I cannot respond instantly. I also require you to do something to show you are not a spambot.

Why are there so many links to WikiPedia, HBR and New Scientist?

Simple. Most of the journals that I read have their content hidden behind password protection. Wikipedia is at lease moderately reputable, if a changing target. Newspaper articles get removed from the publisher’s site quite often so linking to that is not a good thing. I feel it is a bad thing for me to try and lock the references in by copying the content and republishing here.

New Scientist is really good. Archive search is a wonderful way to quickly check facts. I do read Wikipedia because it is at least moderated content. I never rely on it as a sole source but it can be good as background. Harvard Business Review is also good. I get the print magazine and often check the archive online. The Age in Melbourne is the newspaper I rely on most, followed by The Canberra Times. The Project Management Journal is something I love to receive each quarter. In my field of work it is a useful journal.


I have included a series of book reviews for some of the books I have enjoyed reading the most. My previous reviews are lost so I am gradually recreating them.
