I will soon cancel this site in the face of the legistation that comes into play on 25 May 2018.

It isn't worth the hassle of getting this site compliant to be frank - so I'll move the content to another site and that one will be GDPR compliant from the outset.

I'll move the blogs, photos, forum items in due course and meantime I will delete all the membership entries from the site so that no personal data is being held.

Long live Privacy and Security, eh? :-)

Profile Information

How do you know of this site?
I know Mike, I came from Twitter
Are you or do you wish to be an ACTIVE member of Mike's network?
Yes, Am already active with Mike
What business are you in (optional and private)
Research, IT, Internet, Communications & Surveyance, Media, Modern ThinkTank
Some notes about yourself (optional)
I'm a networker at heart, I like to socialise and cross minds with people through whatever means I have available. A bit of a go-to-guy, I spend more time helping people out and making connections than anything else; a true supporter of the value of the tools we have today.

IT and surrounding topics is my core base for knowledge; I consult on and provide services involving Core IT Systems, IT Security & Policy, IT TCO Reduction, Research and Surveyance, Public and Internal Communications - including social networking - and provide what some have referred to as a modern thinktank service, considering all angles of business. While I normally work with SMBs and Charities, I have ties with businesses of all sizes.

With certifications in PRINCE2, Microsoft and other IT technologies; involvement in a variety of business operations for various sized companies; self taught knowledge with a thirst to understand more and a modern view on business coupled with a healthy dash of common sense, I am an all-rounder, a jack of all trades and master of many, and a valuable source of information to those that seek to engage me.
A website address if you have one please?

Call me a cynic, call me a killjoy, call me what you will. But one thing you can't call me is wrong. Let me say that the facts here are the facts, and the rest is pure…

Hi Ian

I'm pushing the boundaries a bit here, though I do recall our interaction on Twitter and I'm sure we'll meet soon enough :-)

We have a mutual trust on this site, which I'll hope you find your way into.

No doubt mutual benefit will ensue.



About.Me is a nice facility ...

All your links in one place - simple but really nicely done AND including some analytics. Come and have a look at my links?
