A collection of my thoughts. All expressions are that of mine @wilr and not my employers.

Sad news to end the week on. Simon is a good friend, technical maverick and has been (and still is) a great community advocate since way back in 2007. It’s disappointing to see this post come to light and to see him relinquish a privilege that he deserves, but I appreciate his concerns and respect the honesty and clarity of his actions.

As the only non SilverStripe employee on the core team alongside Simon I’ve backed a lot of what he had to say various matters relating to the operation of the community and product direction. We didn’t always agree on everything but for what we did stand for we’ve indicated those opinions repeatably to the rest of core team internally over the course of last few years. These concerns have been met with varying degree’s of success, effectiveness or respect to which, Simon took personally. 

I love the community. I love the product. I love being able to go around the world and meet awesome people that use our software to make their lives better. While some of the ideologies and messages me and Simon have been pushing for will likely never take place, the treatment I personally get as an ‘outsider’ from SilverStripe Ltd is nothing but open and friendly. I only wish that respect was extended to everyone.

I wish Simon the best, hope he stays active in the community. If you want to help him out, make sure you donate to his fund raising campain.

I loved visiting Hong Kong, was different and strange yet totally comfortable. Has everything you want in a destination, easy to get around, culture, amazing views. This collection of shots is sick. The guys have balls.

139 Thoughts Everyone Has While On A Contiki Tour 

Sad but true, all 139 I can tick  off for Topdeck as well. Right down to the two token Canadians.



Our life is what our thoughts make it. A man will find that as he alters his thoughts toward things and other people, things and other people will alter towards him.

Painfully obvious.. 

”..Their busy schedule gives them an elevated sense of importance. But it’s an illusion. They’re like hamsters running on the wheel.”

Unproductive people create waste at an exponential level to a productive person. Meetings, emails, poorly constructed discussions, planning or a lack of initiative all add up to unproductive people acting as a tumorous cancer in an organisation.

All the self help blogs and movies remind us, time is the most valuable asset one has. How you use your time is on you, but to waste someone else’s time is the biggest sin and so often goes unchallenged within an organisation, whether it be government, corporate or agency.

Most organisations will have a waste and recycle policy to reduce the amount of energy, water or product they consume. But those same organisations also consume something more valuable from society which isn’t as treated as a target to actively reduce. Time.
