So, one is visiting Learning Live over the coming two days. What is always an energising and interesting event will be layered with additional anticipation as we proceed through our COVID world. Being in the same space with that many people will be interesting in itself. I think we are all hoping for more than… Continue reading We’re all digital now, yes?
When I referenced this story (in last week’s newsletter) about Warner Music signing a virtual pop artist in China I did not expect a connection to EY to crop up.

Combined with the seemingly endless trove of tunes on YouTube, I am experiencing a renaissance in my music education. The… Continue reading Listening makes it personal
It is Sunday afternoon and I have just laid fragile claim to some masculine territory. It is a minor triumph by any standards and no triumph at all by many. However, as an office worker, who has been a keyboard warrior since work began, I will take my emotional sustenance as I can. My achievement… Continue reading This product must be installed by a competent person
