The PaleoBarefoots® from GoSt that I mentioned in my last post have recently been generating quite a lot of comment around the web – with my little test video even reaching as far as China! Here are just a few of the links that have discussed (some more positively than others) the PaleoBarefoots. http://www.dudeiwantthat.com/style/shoes/chainmail-shoes.asp http://www.humanosphere.info/2013/01/les-chaussures-en-cotte-de-mailles-ont-la-cote/ (In French) http://fashionablygeek.com/shoes/chainmail-sneakers-are-perfect-for-knights-on-casual-fridays/ (I’ll […]
On one of the forums that I am a member of, someone posted this link about how to do barefoot running all wrong. It contains some really salient advice about understanding your body, the ambient conditions and the way the two interact! I do like running barefoot on concrete – it’s always nice and warm […]
In my last run for fun post, I got to the point where I’d finished the Bay Bridge run. Although I’d finished the race and I was happy that I’d beaten my target time, I did feel that I’d let myself down a bit. I was particularly disappointed that I’d gone out so fast on the first […]

If you are still thinking that somehow you can reverse the tide and that ‘marriage’ will go back to being to something that you’re happy to define as between a man and a woman, you’re wrong. You’re out of time. The argument is over. What’s happening now is just the cleaning up. Marriage is for […]
Happy New Year to all. Once again our planet has successfully made a full revolution around our central star, without us managing to blow the whole thing up, which is a reasonable cause for celebration if I ever heard one.
I’ve been participating in National Novel Writing Month. There’s a theory that everyone has a novel in them, so I’m trying to get mine out, so I can get on with life. This does mean that I’m not posting here much this month, particularly as I’ve been traveling like crazy for a while and still […]
QR (Quick Response) codes are becoming ubiquitous in advertising (and business cards – I even have one that has only a big orange QR code on it), and yet many people just don’t know what they are. As a geeky kind of guy, I’m interested in how they can be used and in finding interesting […]
Trust is a gift, often given only once, that can be lost in an instant, but if kept carefully will last a lifetime.
Today brings the terribly sad news that, once again, a teenager has taken his own life because of bullying about his sexuality. http://www.shewired.com/soapbox/2011/10/17/gay-teen-jamie-hubley-commits-suicide So much has changed in the last 50 years or so; we’ve moved (here in America at least) from a country where slavery was legal and black people were considered sub-human, to […]
