And you’re not a “motorist”. You are someone in a car. Someone I haven’t met yet, with your own universe of people who laugh when you’re around, and you rode a bike to school, and you’re trying to remember your shopping list, and you’re thinking about going for a run, and you need to check your mirror before you open your door, in case the guy who plays guitar in the office band is riding past you on a bike.

Say “hi”, next time. My name’s Stuart.

PS Look out for bikes on December 5th. Details to follow.

Interesting experiment:

Ranfurly Station Pale Ale was put in front of the tasting panel at this month’s SOBA National Homebrew Competition, judged as a New Zealand Pale Ale. This was a true blind test –judges didn’t know they were tasting a commercial beer, and they certainly didn’t know it was Ranfurly’s new Station Pale Ale. The beer was judged to the Beer Judging Certification Programme standard, used internationally for judging home brew and commercial beer.

Sounds good:

YouTube Remote creates a virtual connection between your phone and YouTube Leanback. To ‘pair’ your phone with your Leanback screen, simply sign into YouTube Remote on your Android phone, and to YouTube Leanback on your Google TV or computer with the same YouTube account. Just like that, you’ve connected your powerful multi-touch Android screen with the biggest screen in your home.
