“I haven’t heard about any AI-forward projects [in the Caribbean]” – that’s a quote from a recent episode of This Week In Caribbean Tech. Admittedly, I first saw the episode it was via this tweet: The long tail of my disagreement started when I saw the tweet and it continued to percolate for a good […]
Doing new things can be hard. Still try. That’s it, that’s the whole post.
It’s early days yet, but the sooner we face the music, the more ready we’ll be to adapt. I was listening to “Precious Things” from a recent Lupe Fiasco album. In it, he personified his hands and sang about the conflict he, the artist was engaged in with his instruments of expression – his hands. […]
Azure Skills Navigator (a real one)
I saw this tweet from @msdev: I literally read the first line and thought, Yes! They’re doing that cool thing I’d envisioned a while back. I clicked through to the post. That’s when I saw what I should have seen in the second line of the tweet, “…a ramp-up guide for developers”. Bummer. I mean, […]

Abolish SEA: v1
The way I see it, I’ve got four years to convince the nation that we need to get rid of the Secondary Entrance Assessment. Normally, I use this space to talk about tech, and particularly tech I’ve used to experiment and make new things. So, as you can imagine, I’m not going to leave that […]

There were six official courses to the one event overall. Personally, I did nine course runs. Teleios Power Hour. If you can struggle through Fusion, you […]
