In Francis Ford Coppola's 1983 movie Rumblefish, Mickey Rourke's doomed anti-hero Motorcycle Boy mutters: "If you'd going to lead people, you have to have somewhere to go."

Perhaps like many others I'm not yet convinced the on role Google Glass will play in the interview and hiring process, however the fact that someone out there is trying, irrespective of its long term success or otherwise, should be applauded - I am certainly watching with interest and will be keen to see the result.

"Let it rip... Do it to me. Teach me this meditation stuff!"... I looked at the man sitting before me: brilliant, driven, major health problems, too wildly busy to be sick, so overcommitted that running in ten different directions simultaneously is the norm. Sound familiar at all?

It seems that Brawn is relishing the chance to take advantage of some leisure time after several decades of toil, tumult and success in Formula 1. Having won two titles while at Benetton, Brawn followed 7-time world champion Michael Schumacher to Ferrari secure another five titles with the Italian carmaker.

Abercrombie & Fitch has never made me feel good. I've always left the store feeling a) robbed of money b) cold (the fabric is thin), fat (it's hard not to), and also angry in general that I'd succumbed to the societal pressures of attempting to prove I am living a certain lifestyle.

Alistair Niederer

My colleagues often ask why I use Twitter so often. There is a belief amongst those who do not really use it that everyone is just broadcasting the details of their breakfast, or which train they are waiting for. This is a misconception.
