Long-term I want this blog to include an archive of all my various scribblings for cash, but unfortunately I keep forgetting to do anything about it. However, I’ve uploaded a couple of things: three “hypertheticals” columns for PC Plus magazine.
The idea behind “hypertheticals” is to take an interesting question, choose one side of the argument and stick with it – so they’re designed to be argument fuel rather than fair and balanced “on one hand, but on the other” pieces. Naturally they’re enormous fun to write and research, and hopefully they’re fun to read too. The three I’ve uploaded are “What if the oil runs out?” “What if PC viruses infect humans?” and “What if Luddism returns?”

> Of all the threats facing humans, viruses are the most dangerous. The prospect of Avian Flu jumping species is truly terrifying, but if that doesnâ€™t get us thereâ€™s always MRSA and other â€œsuperbugsâ€
… which aren’t viruses.
Yes, I’m envious that you get paid for this.
You knew what I meant :)
But of course.
