Milton Friedman dies.

Being involved with $SECRET_PROJECT I have had little time to track regular news and managed to miss Milton Friedman’s death.

I’ve read a couple of his books, my favorite being Money Mischief.

Friedman’s view, government had the opposite obligation: to keep its
hands off the economy, to let the free market do its work. He was a
spiritual heir to Adam Smith, the 18th-century founder of the science
of economics and proponent of laissez-faire: that government governs
best which governs least.

Jamie Cullum

Julie managed to get some last minute tickets to the Jamie Cullum concert last night.  It was a fantastic concert.  The supporting band Nizlopi, was aslo very good.




To be honest I hadn’t heard either of Jamie’s 2 newer albums and was very impressed.  At first he came across as somewhat arrogant on stage but slowly managed to build up a good repoirtoire with the audience.  The highlight of the evening was when he brought his band off stage and played his penultimate song out in the audience, right in front of Julie and myself.



Pictures will be forthcoming.

The Valley that Woz

Interesting video of Woz (one of the Apple Computer Founders) talking about growning up in Silicon Valley. It brings home the benefits of living in an area with a rich conventration of electonics and technology companies.

“Parts weren’t easy to find but you could get a distributer in Mountain View… but at least it was possible here. At least we had a few places here.”

Guess it’s still true today.
