Findhorn for a new life on the waves

Recycled living in the Findhorn Foundation Com...Image via WikipediaDo we need a Findhorn in Cornwall?  The is a spiritual community, ecovillage and an international centre for holistic education, helping to unfold a new human consciousness and create a positive and sustainable future.

I met a very interesting and entertaining doctor who was bought up in Findhorn – he is a great advert for the community and there are great waves for surfing on the north coast of Scotland not too far away from Findhorn.

So the surf is good in Cornwall and near Findhorn and I hope that the good spirit can be made in to a large wave to wash peace over the Middle East.

Spinvox on the go

Spinvox now translates 10million voice message to text every week with a 97% accuracy so c0-founder Christina Domecq.  And you can now dictate your post to your blog so you can update whilst on the move.  I need to try this when I am in the wilds of Scotland during August when I will be able to find a mobile phone signal on top of the Munroes but I will not be carrying my laptop up with me!

Broadband flows faster than water

viewImage by Yersinia via Flickr BT’s director for Scotland, Brendan Dick, said ……… that more homes in Britain now had access to broadband than to running water.

“The UK has been at the forefront of the broadband revolution,” he said. “It’s been an amazing journey from less than 150,000 broadband connections in 2002 to around 13 million now.”

It is an amazing social change and probably as fast a change as when mobile phones were first introduced. But I am not sure about access; presumably more homes are connected to running water than have broadband.
