I Use HEY But I’m Not a Douche, Promise!

Hey, World 👋 If you’re receiving this in your inbox today it may be a bit of a blast from the past. An unwelcome one at that. I’m not posting to address any of the various HEY / Basecamp controversies, however. Suffice to say I completely disagreed, and still do disagree, with Basecamp attitudes and opinions hoisted onto their staff. I...

Dented - Issue #1

Hey, World 👋 I hope you’re all well and keeping safe. Some of you may have signed up to receive my HEY World updates, and wonder where I’ve been for the last month or so. I’ve stopped using HEY World, and been concentrating on posting to my main blog, The Dent, instead. It’s been a fairly busy month of posts for me. While the quality i...

Reading List Blackhole #1

Hey, World 👋 One of my favourite things to look at in the various newsletters that I subscribe to these days are the links people share, from articles they’d read that week. These always include well written, fascinating reads which I will often add to my Reading List on iOS. The issue with this, however, is these links then join a lon...

The Sound of Silence

Hey, World 👋 For as long as I can remember, I’ve had a real problem with silence. I’m not sure what silence ever did to me to upset me so, but for a long time I’ve subconsciously avoided silence.

The Tech Podcast Bubble

Hey, World 👋 I’ve noticed a lot of people, especially during the last difficult year, leaving or taking breaks from Twitter for the sake of their mental well-being. While I have, thankfully, yet to let the many negatives of that medium get to me, my own personal bug bear has been tech podcasts. Before the pandemic I had a commute that ...

When To Press The Button

Hey, World 👋 I’m starting to think that I enjoy the technology of blogging more than I do the actual blogging. My latest blog iteration is hosted on When I first started writing there I was posting regularly and enjoying myself. The enthusiasm started to dwindle, but a switch to a new service, namely Ghost, reignited my pas...

Hey, World

Hey, World 👋 Well, here it is, my first post on my HEY World blog. Looking at posts that others have shared so far, it seems to be mandatory to use some form of ‘Hello World’ post title and who am I to argue? We’ve not had to wait long for this feature since it was hinted at / demoed by the HEY team, but I’ve been excited for it noneth...
