Big data challenges include capturing data, data storage, data analysis, search, sharing, transfer, visualization, querying, updating and information privacy.


A collection of posts relating to the noble art of blogging :-)


A collection of posts about books (print and audio). Often these will synopses of the storylines in books I've read or listened to. I use them to jog my memory as to what's gone on when the next in the series comes out :-)

Dark Data

What is Dark Data? Simply put, it's unseen data that's not being fully exploited yet. This collection of posts discusses this.

Data science, also known as data-driven science, is an interdisciplinary field of scientific methods, processes, and systems to extract knowledge or insights from data in various forms, either structured or unstructured, similar to data mining.

A collection of posts about dogs, dog training and of course, our dogs :-)

Welcome to the world of Becky, our Welsh Cob / Arab cross, and the youngster Amber, our Norweign Fjord :-) Also for general horse stuff.

Things to do with movies and TV programmes. Often these will be synopses of the storylines as a memory jogger for me :-)


The word 'permaculture' comes originally from 'permanent agriculture' and 'permanent culture' - it is about living lightly on the planet, and making sure that we can sustain human activities for many generations to come, in harmony with nature.


A collection of posts about productivity, or how to do more with less :-)

Raspberry Pi

The Raspberry Pi is a very low cost System On a Chip (SOC) single board hobbyist computer. It comes in 2 flavours, the larger and more powerful 3B that retails at $35, and it's little brother the Zero that retails for $5 or $10 with WiFi and Bluetooth.
