back to article In the Year of Our Bong, 2015

"Why isn't there an Uber for Christmas?", I mused last week, as my assistant มาลัย (which means "Garland of Flowers" in Thai) basted the traditional festive roast of Royal Swan. "Christmas itself is a celebration of one of the greatest of all disruptors," I reminded her. "He championed the sharing economy. He was pursued by …

    Minute of Code

    " a great opportunity to test my new education startup investments, particularly my "Minute of Code" initiative."

    Is this to enhance or replace the 'christianity-based asssemblies'?

    Mr Gove -- for it is his hand still firmly on the tiller - and other Cabinet Ministers have extolled the virtues of coding for the under fives and full apps enterprises for KS2, with a total MLF life-stye course at the age of 12. The MLF course will demonstrate how to wring milions out of governments, get an honhour and STILL lose a fortune.

    I look forward to being evicted in 2015 by a spotty youth who has made billions while merely being driven to school and now owns my town.

    Progress - ever onward.

    Bong! Enterprises -- at the heart of enterprise funding (tax deductable and tax exempt - at the same time).

      This clearly relates to the God question.

      Was there a need for God before God?

      Can we therefore agree that God and Porn are both closely linked as they ask the same thing.

      (They are also closely linked in the way that Nuns are often found to be nubile and with clothes that fall off)

    Smoke and (daily) mirrors

    Seeing the ineffable otherwordly quality of these articles one must ask the following:

    - Would the Author come from some alternate branch of the multiverse?

    - Has El reg - always at the forefront of innovation - agreed to compensate the author in virtual hugs in lieu of mundane currency?

      "Would the Author come from some alternate branch of the multiverse?"

      If only the celebs and "entrepreneurs" referenced in the article were indeed heading off down a different leg of the trousers of time, what a wonderful world it would be.

    Obviously bongs should also go to.

    1) IT/Tech sites which went all touch friendly, abet not going the full monty because they like their icon design - so it's naff on a big screen and naff on a tablet.

    2) IT/Tech sites which employ moderators who are too young, (or ignorant), to know that Gupta SQL Windows was actually a product.
