Have a think about the last time you looked at your phone? How many times have you used it in the last hour, or day? Nottingham Trent University found we look at our phones about 85 times a day. What did you last use your phone for? To make a call? Probably not.

Television Isn't Dead, It's In Rude Health

Mark Lund | Posted 14.11.2016 | UK Tech
Mark Lund

TV certainly can't be complacent or ossified. To continue as a brand's best partner it must continue to change and work in harmony with its so-called rivals in online, social and digital. We'll all be much healthier for that.

I'm Still With Her

Hillary Rodham Clinton's concession speech was everything that diplomacy should be - I should stop typing, turn off my computer and sulk somewhere else because if she can pull herself together, slap on mascara and tell America, and the world, to keep an open mind then I have no place to be playing a violin.

Ran Berger

Steady work on developing the tech throughout recent years has bought us to today, where companies like Oculus Rift can offer incredibly impressive virtual reality experiences through their gear. Augmented reality, (where we add to our existing world rather than 'escaping' to another) has also hit the mainstream, thanks to Pokemon GO and snapchat filters.

Jeremy Corbyn Is A False Prophet For The Young

Beth Leslie | Posted 24.10.2016 | UK Universities & Education
Beth Leslie

Of course, polls can be wildly incorrect. Elections are wildly unpredictable. It not completely impossible that Corbyn could convert the masses to an extent that would give him a mandate to fully implement his socialist policies without bending on a single principal. But, just like Venezuela, Britain would go bust.

The Dislocated Ones

The world is an increasingly complex place. Traditional institutions designed to hold together society have lost the authority they once had. Public trust in government, the financial sector and brands is at an all-time low. Racial division, climate change, inequality and terrorism dominate headlines.

We Must Prevent Brexit To Protect Our Children's Future

Nicola Horlick | Posted 25.09.2016 | UK Politics
Nicola Horlick

I would urge all of those who voted to Remain to rekindle the feelings that they felt in the days following 23 June and to make a stand. We need to protect our economic future and the futures of our children and the Liberal Democrats might just provide the platform to achieve that.

The Future of Air Travel

The human race has always had an insatiable appetite for exploration; despite the fact maps used to say "there be dragons here", or feared that we'd sail off the edge, heading over the horizon is in our nature. Jump 1000 years later and we're still doing it. Everywhere on the globe is now reachable by air travel, but with rising population comes rising demand...

London Must Create A New Innovation Cluster

Professor Michael Arthur

London already has much of what is needed to be at the centre of a cluster of innovation that will ultimately rival any other in the world. We stand at the threshold of making it happen at scale and we should seize the opportunity to create another major economic string to London and the UK's bow.

Personally now with that mind-blowing wonder of hindsight, I can look back over the past twenty odd years, if not more of my life and I have to question whether the constant fretting that I seemed incapable of stopping served any purpose whatsoever.

Dear 15 year old me. You probably won't read this letter because it's stuck in a pile of unfinished homework on your bedroom floor, next to the mouldy cups of coffee and your dirty underwear, that you're too bone idle to put in the wash bin.

So, whilst we develop this tech and put it to work, let's try and remember that there's a time and place for virtual and augmented reality. When it stops enhancing and starts replacing our world, it's probably time to take a step back.
