Ever get the feeling that the tech industry knows something we don't and is doing everything they can to prepare humanity for what's coming?

If the rest of the city drags SE London into Tier 3, it'll be the final excuse we need to secede.

(This is genuinely the bag draw I just got in a game of iPhone Scrabble.)

I got there in the end. Thank you for following up. I also didn’t get the answers wrong unless y’all are hiding the cars behind trees and stuff to make it hard... :)

Argos is the only place left where I can get something like a replacement HDMI cable the same day. COVID means you can no longer place orders instore so online ordering is now mandatory. Only way to get a VAT receipt for an online order is to pucker up and to do the monkey dance.

IT KNOWS. You can't click randomly. If you click randomly it won't let you log in to your account. You know. The one you set up so YOU COULD GIVE THEM YOUR MONEY. The world wide web in 2020 is just an endless stream of microfrustrations.

I counted. To get a VAT receipt for an HDMI cable I just had to identify six fire hydrants, nine cars, five buses, and eleven sets of stairs. This is on 's website. Three rounds of captcha on login, three more when you go to request a VAT receipt for a purchase.

"Please select all images with fire hydrants. Then wait 5 seconds as we slowly fade in more images that might contain fire hydrants. Then select those too." Captchas now are really just about pushing humans past the point where any self-respecting bot would give up in disgust...

Shocked? Far from it... spout enough obnoxious nonsense on the internet and they’ll probably ask you to run for President.

Problem is, developers often aren't even invited to the conversation until the Powers That Be have already decided that software has to be the answer. So we spend a lot of time building stuff that doesn't need to be built, because somebody is hellbent on paying us to build it. 😐

The willingness to embrace solutions that don't involve developing software. Hire temporary staff to do things on paper, instead of automating right away. Store printouts in a safe, instead of creating a secure online storage system. Make an actual telephone call once in a while.

That one was entirely down to - who is, I think, the only programmer in the world who can genuinely claim that was their first (and so far only) programming language... 🀘⭐️

Meetings, emails, diagrams, retrospectives, Slack, Zoom, Google, code reviews, user stories... they're all tools. And just like any other tool, they're great if you know how, and when, to use them... so sign up and find out how! Also... there will be digital Lego. (Yes, really.)
