In case you happen to be wondering why, after years of my writing columns for Computer Weekly and Silicon and general "tech" stuff on IT, there's rather less of it around on this weblog, then it's because I'm experiencing a career change of sorts.
Having taken over the aerial banner-towing company, Airads from the famous “Captain Bob”, I find that I’m being overwhelmed with demand for ‘Gigs’ like the FA Cup Final in the last entry. So I’m dashing around the country with my team of professional pilots, flying banners around big sporting events, police messages, trade union rallies, pop concerts and let’s not forget “Will You Marry Me” messages over Southend Pier and other romantic spots.
It's a tough life but someone has to do it and when IT or Netcrime calls, I get the other members of the team to do the flying but as IT, ecrime and banners both appear to be seasonal occupations at different times of the year, I'm looking for a new career over the Christmas holiday to fill the gaps in my calendar. Any suggestions?
