It’s official: people are stupid!

Well, well – it’s been a funny old day! LOL. I was just at a meat market in a big city and in a 60-second conversation with a meat trader – he told me “..people are stupid! They don’t know what they’re doing or where they’re going.” This chap ownsRead More

Echo responsivity

At the outset, this is not an attempt to diagnose any person or allude to diagnosis of any person. Let me repeat that two more times. At the outset, this is not an attempt to diagnose any person or allude to diagnosis of any person. At the outset, this is not anRead More

Super-patterns: The ultimate problem of programming

I’m going deeper – and this is a difficult one to put into words. What is programming? Well, people might immediately think of ‘computers‘.  After all, computers work on sets of instructions.

How people decide their needs

As usual this post is based on my personal and professional experience of people in situations. I don’t care what’s written out there on the net by some lot of gurus. Why? Because it is my experience given here!! I’ve read from the gurus already for over 25 years. AsRead More
