10th Anniversary of #mybrushwithdeath

ÔĽŅ I honestly can’t really believe its 10 years since my brush with death. Its been a long time and something I will never ever forget, 10 years ago after the general election of 2010. Will never forget how different the world was after I woke up in hospital and someone (pretty sure it was…

Excessive energy drink use, symptoms include…

[caption id="attachment_22389" align="alignnone" width="600"] What Caffeine looks like under a microscope[/caption] There was a time when I would consume upwards of 5-14 cans of redbull every night on a weekend, while going out clubbing and raving. So many I would add Tabasco sauce to slow me down if I was in a bar not a…

10 years of Inception

Inception is a special film for me. 10 years since I left hospital, bought my flat and one of the first films I saw was Inception at the Manchester IMAX and was blown away, so watched it and again and again (hey I was signed off with a brain injury – Inception was helping me)…

A shared passion for the brain

How to Retrain Your Brain was my 3rd Funzing talk I have been to. The 1st I wasn’t that impressed with, while the 2nd one (Neuroscience of Decision Making) was great. With my interest in power of the brain. I’m happy to say retrain your brain was I had no heard of Lisa Upton but…

APRIL FOOLS Herb Kim is fine: SORRY!

Updated on April 1st – 1159 BST It started out as a weird idea I had while looking into bulletproof coffee.¬†I wanted to give it a try but realized most of it including¬†coconut milk and other things which would put me in hospital for a¬†long time. This got me thinking, imagine¬†if Dave Asprey¬†suddenly discovered a…

Vice rips the clothes off undressed

A certain person (rather not say at the moment) sent me a link to the vice piece about undressed… of course its going to be so snarky but also funny, so I had a read. Here’s some highlights… Surprisingly it is not. Undressed feels like an odd peek 20 or 30 years into a dystopian…

My beautiful broken brain

I first heard about the documentary my beautiful broken brain via mindhacks. I then tracked it down and finally watched it. Lotje was 34 when she had the same kind of brain injury as myself. I ended up calling it #mybrushwithdeath. Watching¬†the documentary was unreal not only because there was so much I could relate…

A review of my 2014 resolutions

Its been quite a year for me, the odd google plus video above is just a tiny slice of my hectic but great year. This year I thought I would do¬† something a little different following metadating and another year of the quantified self. Following a bit of a twitter chat with Herb and Zoe,…

Over loaded at the moment…

You may have noticed the lack of blogging coming from me recently? I’m currently going through 2 major events. First one being BarCampManchester5 and a week later Mozilla Festival. Don’t worry I’ve checked my heart rate and its normal… Never want a repeat of mybrushwithdeath. However I’m trying to avoid getting ill with the horrible…

The best of the rest of Thinking Digital 2014

As mentioned in the previous 2 blog posts. Thinking Digital 2014 was excellent and further proves this conference is getting better everytime. I pulled out 2 great talks and already wrote about them previously… Aral Balkan’s Free is a Lie – How can we ever trust the 5 stacks? Blaise Aguera’s Arcas’s Thursday afternoon talk…

EPIC Werewolf time!!!

My parents were deeply worried that I was doing too much again. Specially after what happened to me with mybrushwithdeath almost two and half years ago. I can tell you and them that my blood pressure is normal… So what have I been up to…? Because my blog has also suffered due to the hectic…
