It has taken me 45 years and 5 countries (India>UK>Sweden>Japan>India>Germany>Sweden) to go from an engineering apprentice to university researcher to technology developer to salesman to corporate executive to author to get to this blog.

I think I have by now grown out of the constraints of being politically correct. My posts reflect whatever is uppermost in my mind but mainly connected with behaviour, development, energy, climate, environment, evolution and electric power.

I try to deal with my interests in anthropology and archaeology and the evolution and expansion of modern humans at my other blog: 6,000 Generations  

My book Essence of a Manager  is published by Springer and is about the behaviour of managers.

    Hi, I’m the Editor for Atypical Rationale, the blog you recently checked out. I’ve used our blog administrator account to snoop around your blog, which i shouldn’t have, in retrospect (I’m the Arsenal fan Xavier’s student, if you recall). I’d like to contact you via email but i can’t seem to find a specific email address for me to get through.

    Hello, I wanted to comment on a post but couldn’t find where to do it, so I’ll just do it here. About the Galapagos conservation project. I know your post was intended to be humurous but it think it is important to make this clear anyway: it was not a way to protect a charismatic species above an “ugly” species. Even if rats were there before Darwin arrived, they were an introduced european species (Rattus rattus) that had limited the perpetuation of Galapagos turtles since its introduction to the Island. The rats ate 100% of the hatchlings that had no predators before. It is not “specism”, rodents are not bad, but introduced species in general damage ecosystems, whether they are a pretty animal or not. Conservation is not a matter of some animalistic fan group, it takes years of research and effort to understand its mechanics.
