A cloud hanging over us? No, blue skies.

Blue skies People keep asking me to write about Ning, but I don't do requests (very often), and I don't have much to say I haven't already said. Ning is a dead end. Now it's a dying dead end. End of story. Build networks, not destinations.

What I want to write about is #ashtag. As I listen, some middleman is on the radio moaning about not being able to fly in beans from Africa. Brilliant. While I have sympathy for those trapped overseas by lack of return flights, my long term view of the post peak oil future is much more optimistic. Technology will ride to the rescue, not by modifying jet engines but by eliminating the need for much air travel.

Life is looking up. Here's to Eyjafjallajoekull!
