Technology got us into this mess

There is now almost universal agreement that the rise in CO2 in the atmosphere has resulted in the warming of our planet between 0.5 and 1.0°C since the beginning of the industrial revolution, largely driven by human activity. Recent evidence suggests that even a 1.5OC rise will significantly impact our daily lives. And that is especially true for people in less developed…

Could somebody please remind me why we’re transforming our business?

Posted on: Feb 22, 2018 by Andy Wallace It’s 30 years since I found myself, as a young volunteer, working for Dominica Agro Industries on the site of the old Rose’s Lime Juice factory in Roseau, Dominica.

It feels very much as if a tipping point has now been reached, as wearable sensors measure our walk to work  and connected or driverless cars are beginning to seem…

Watch where you put that sensor!

I recently came across an article on a Technology and News website that reported on a Search Engine for the ‘Internet of Things’. What a cool idea! A one-stop shop to check the status of the webcams in my house, fiddle with the heating and lighting and maybe even check where my family members are based on the location of their…

The Internet of Things; a New Tower of Babel?

My daughter, like most teenagers, spends a great deal of her time with a smartphone in her hand. The smartphone is, of course, liberating for parents and teenagers alike. Old family arguments about hogging the only phone in the house have been consigned to history and my daughter is growing up in the world where people…
