Snakes on a plane

February 18, 2007

I got up at 0400 this morning to make a breakfast meeting in London with Max Boisot for some intellectual stimulus and our normal sparring match. As a result of this and road closures in London for the Chinese New Year I only just made the plane to Atlanta by Chicago with a few minutes to spare. I felt I deserved the second gin and tonic in consequence, but as a result I did not have much concentration left for work. Accordingly instead of writing an article or composing a blog of great significance, I cleared email and tidied up my folder structure. In doing so I came across this cartoon, originally sent to me by Humera (for which my thanks). It sort of speaks for itself!
