I think that one of the most harmful myths around computers is the one saying that you have to be smart to program one. It scares a lot of great people, and attracts a lot of people who are not so great, and only come for the bragging rights.
Using (including programming) computers does not require above-average intelligence. Most programmers I've met are in fact incredibly stupid most of the time. And it's fine, it all works somehow.

I wish I could stop seeing things on Twitter. Since when did *Boris* decimate the NHS? He's only been in the job 8 weeks! God I hate some people, I truly mean that. The bollocks some people spread while even bigger idiots agree with them.

Do you help run a federated or decentralised service in Europe -- or know someone who does? Please pass this link on. It's the application to meet politicians to discuss how the EU's copyright filters (Article 13/17) will be implemented. I worry about a backroom deal struck between Facebook/Google that excludes the next generation of open Net services: ec.europa.eu/digital-single-ma .. Please speak up!

You do realise OPEC has billions of barrels of oil in storage so they can control the market don't you? There's no need for prices to go up but of course they will now they have an excuse.

Erm? Why?
This is the problem with British MP's like Dominic Raab They can't comprehend that we must go cap in hand to the EU hoping they'll throw us a bone. They think the UK is still important and therefore the EU will bend over backwards for us.
