MWC 2019: It’s all about the IP, baby!

When you think of Mobile World Congress, the first thing that comes to mind is "New Devices!". That is pretty much the case every year, but it is indeed a very small part of the experience. Well, if one steps outside of that bubble that is. What stands out is the sheer ingenuity on display by every single company that wants to make a mark on the minds of the over 100,000 attendees walking the show floor. So, who ends up grabbing the attention? It's the ones that perfectly understand the needs...

Skybound - a Journey in Flight ~ Rebecca Loncraine

'The loveliest places of allare those that look as ifthere's nothing thereto those still learning to look' 'Deserts for Instance' - Brian Turner (Elemental - Central Otago Poems) Choosing another book from the shelf of Journeys that I plan to do from my armchair this year, and 'learning to look' at new places is becoming a real treat. I'd no sooner travelled back in deep time searching for Doggerland with Julia Blackburn and Time Song than I decided I was ready for a bit of vast open sky a...

A bit of wall construction

A Reading Gallimaufry

I've had some reading disappointments in recent weeks, books that have started well and lost my interest after about seventy pages, but plenty more that have keep me going to the last page and given me much to think about beyond. Here are three of them. Travelling in a Strange Land ~ David Park (Bloomsbury 165 pages) David Park has been on the edge of my reading radar for years, though never quite made it into the mix until now and this book.  Tom and Lorna's son Luke is studying at Sunderlan...

Six on Saturday – 9th March

March seems to have roared in like a lion, which hopefully will mean it will end like a lamb but we will wait to see if that old adage is true.  Today we had another day full of blustery winds and squally showers, intermingled with sunshine, which at first seemed a good day for gardening...

MOTO PHOTOS: 2019 One Moto Show, Portland, Oregon

Written by Scott Hopkin It’s crazy to think that nine years ago we featured a few bikes from a random little show in Portland called the ‘One Moto Show’. Then it its second year, it had 75 bikes and around 1500 bike enthusiasts come through the doors to check out this ‘new wave’ of custom bikes. The show was started by a Portland local called Thor Drake. Ten years later and Thor is still cranking out this show – just at a much larger scale. It now features over 200 bikes and thousands of p...

Lanny ~ Max Porter

I seem to recall I made some pronouncement (an observation rather than a criticism) somewhere back in 2016 about how much I struggled with this... Not with the book, though I was so slow to realise that Grief is the Thing With Feathers was a novel and not a memoir, that it took hearing Max Porter talk about the book at Port Eliot Festival for the penny to drop. I had an odd few days afterwards trying to square it all in my it was the paperback cover that I had a bit of an issue wit...

Last Train to Hilversum - A journey in search of the magic of radio ~ Charlie Connelly

The minute I heard about this book I knew I had to read it, and I am very grateful to Bloomsbury for sending along a copy of Last Train to Hilversum - A journey in search of the magic of radio by  Charlie Connelly pronto to assuage the need. It was the word 'Hilversum' that did it, twanging a chord that echoed back into the deepest early memories of my childhood. We were definitely a radio family, the image of the enormous brown box so ingrained in my mind that I had no trouble locating it onli...

Sea Room ~ Adam Nicolson

'I have stolen some of the light which drenches you this midnight  to wish you all the islands in the world and every one a different kind of peace." These lines from Northern Lights by Jo Shapcott have been among my most treasured poetry quotes since the day I first read them and which I'd written on the flyleaf of Sea Room by Adam Nicolson. I've used the words so many times in so many books about islands, jotted them in notebooks, sent them as a sort of blessing to friends. I'm not sure w...

  Just a quick post tonight to throw the spotlight onto the 2018 highlights video from our good friends at the unique, exciting and ever so slightly crazy Sultans of Sprint race series.

Expect the series to be even bigger and better this year...
