I went to bed on Saturday night in my cabin on the boat full of good intentions. I planned to wake on Sunday morning and write about the great problems our world is facing. Unfortunately, I woke up at 04.09. I tried to resist the impulse to go on to Twitter. I was, I regret, unable to do so. I found @Gideonstrumpet, the author of the A Public Defender blog in the US (I did a podcast with him last Sunday) was still up and on Twitter. I should explain that Gideon is in Connecticut, USA. It was nearing midnight for him. He invited me to have a glass of red wine, after enquiring whether it may be too early for me. It was too early for me – but as luck would have it, I did happen to have the rest of a bottle from the previous evening to hand. I make no admissions as to whether I drank the rest of that bottle.
I decided to be interviewed by an obscure US TV station on the Boat – the results are here.
I was asked why I blog and use Twitter.
