In my other life, I run Personal Development programs. Rather than one-hit motivational moments I conduct a three-month behavioural change program. So I’ve learned a thing or two about the human condition over the ten years of doing this.
It’s Sunday night and I’ve had a great weekend. I’m looking out at the boats bobbing like drunken sailors on the inky black silk of the harbour waters. The night sky above the Bridge is bristling with bats. Ferries quietly carry night owls home from the City and the train rumbles in the distance.
You would think in a world full of information that more data is the last thing we need.
Yet the Internet doesn’t use gas – it uses content to keep it running.
