It’s been a long week – I’m as tired of this blog as you are – so I thought I’d leave with 2 images that sums up how much technology can change the rules that society has lived by for bloody decades, if not centuries.

Hey, I know both are old, but at least they’re more fun than Tom Goodwin’s [albeit good] quote of ‘The world’s largest taxi company, owns no vehicles. The world’s most popular media owner, creates no content. The most valuable retailer, has no inventory. And the world’s largest accommodation provider, owns no real estate’.

First there’s this …

… and now this …

Well, I liked them anyway.

Have a great weekend.

It is utterly brilliant. Done by my lovely ex-colleauge Paula Bloodworth. I absolutely adore the female footballer, the ice hockey guy and the bloke on the bike at the very end. Though of course, there is one thing that can beat a Londoner, a Nottinghamer. Ahem.

What makes it worse is she’s Australian. Though given we still own that country, it does make sense she got the culture so well I suppose.
