Bankers Town has a video, and I’ve got to be honest, it’s awesome. It’s 2 minutes long and it’ll change your life. If it doesn’t change your life, read the book and find out why. One way or another, watch the video AND read the book and then do it all again. Oh, the video’s […]

  The World Cup is over. A certain team won. Another team didn’t, and inevitably there will be much scratching of pundit-heads and stroking of pundit-chins in an effort to find out why. Geniuses far and wide will claim they know the answer. They will all be wrong. How do I know this? I know […]

In the meantime, I’ve been thinking about confirmation bias. In case […]

I’ve kept pretty quiet about the whole data-theft-whistle-blowing-seeking-asylum-in-country-where-anti-government-journalists-just-get-shot mess so far for a number of reasons. Firstly, I’m not entirely sure where I stand on it. I’m not too bothered about my own personal data – hell, I hand it out like candy anyway – but I accept that other people have justifiable concerns about […]

It’s all go, now. The date is set. Well, it’s almost set. Bankers Town (previously known as Without Due Care) will be launched in March 2014. There are a million things to do between then and now, but in the meantime, please like and share the Facebook page and ask anyone you know who can […]
