I make things on the web, mobile and in the actual world.

I've done lots of bits and bobs over the years, and right now I'm mostly working on this.

I enjoy speaking about things I like, most recently this. You can email me if you'd like, and I'm on twitter.

Well, despite only being in slightly-twitchy Edinburgh, I have to say that I am afraid. But I'm not going to let that get in the way. What's the alternative?

Nimrod(marks-dot-bradshaw-at-ntlworld-dot-com) says:

I think yesterday's celebrations of the ending of the World War II had a double edge:to applaud the victory over Nazism and its allies,and to stick two fingers up to terrorism,telling Bin Laden to shove his bombs where the sun don't shine!

Vicki (16)(vingram-at-tiscali-dot-co-dot-uk) says:

As a Londoner, I am so proud to see the world unite against terrorism, fear is what they WANT to inflict upon us, which is why I AM NOT AFRAID.

Clark Kent says:

Its good to show true spirit, I just hope the cowards are not tormented by what they read on here, and make the next attempt a little more catastrophic.

Anand(anandhakumar-at-hotmail-dot-com) says:

There is a famous poem in Tamil which states...

"We have no fear We have no Fear !!!Even if the sky breaks and fall on our head ...Even if the lightning stikes straight on us.. We have no fear We have no fear...Lets face the cowards who do this...Lets face the inhumane who do this..We will Win...Righteousness always Win...

Pete (Southampton) says:

The people of this country along with others were not defeated by the Nazis. We withsood terrorism from various Irish factions for over thirty years and beat them, do these cowards really think that the British lay down that easily. Learn something from history, you will never, never put us down or change our chosen path in this life or the next.

Patrick (Texas) says:

My prayers go out to everyone in London who lost a loved one at the hands of those crazed terrorists. I think I speak for most Americans when I say we are on your side and we are proud of the way you have not backed down from those common thugs. When you think about how many people died in just a few hours in the December tsunami compared to how many people are killed by terrorists in a whole year I think you will see that a bunch of crazy, whacked-out religious nuts are not that big of a concern. Nature can kill a helluva lot more people than a stupid nut with a bomb around his waist. Some people may be afraid but most people are DAMN sure not afraid. Even after the 9/11 incident I don't know of a single person who gives terrorism a single thought during their day. Let's keep fighting these assholes and all stick together!!!

A message to terrorists

By blowing up trains –along with a bus
We’ll carry on as normal - it wont stop us
Look at our history and look what Britain’s done

Conquered all our enemies and beaten every one

We will eradicate terrorists - day by day

They will all be caught and punished -its not far away

You may try and frighten us - with all your sins

Just read the history books- Britain always wins

Terrorists - We are not afriad, as you go about your pitiful existence day by day keep looking over your shoulder.

Everyone be super vigilant and watch each others backs and this won't happen again.

To all the families and friends who have lost someone due to the cruel actions of scum that are terroists, we are deeply sympathetic, and we hope that one day soon they will be caught and brought to justice...R.I.P innocent people who have lost their lives or who have been injured in any way xx

We value our freedom and democracy above everything and we must never give in to terrorism. God bless us all.

Stephan says:

I see a lot of sanctimonous as*h*les on that werenotafraid site. In madrid the bombing were followed by vigils, protest and national grief. Here in London the word is 'it's business as usual'. Platitudes about a blitz we never lived, the carnage was underground, will my train be delayed? - It's not stiff upper lip, it's the cold, anonymous culture of london where no one knows their neighbours - and few care.
Ps: alphie remember me the guy from the docklands, the 'robotic love hotels', etc. Please visit wikipedia.com some people have questions regarding the pix you posted on thursday. Take care.

Glad to hear that you are not giving in to terrorism. We've spent some wonderful weekends in london and will continue to do so. We are thinking of you all from a quiet corner of wales

Were not afraid (?)

War is wrong because it is war.
Violence is wrong because it is violence.

Iraq: 25,000+ civilian casualties.
I think they are afraid!
The terrible has already happened. R.D. Laing
Hiroshima. Nagasaki. Cain and Abel. When did we go down this inhuman path? Or is violence all too human?
Violence like war must become an idea whose very mention evokes a strong disgust. Like cannibalism. Yet we are so immersed in violent culture at every level of our social being that only a new step in our evolution could transform us.
I do not want to diminish the pain and sorrow of any of the London victims. (Or the Were not afraid campaign). I am only asking myself if there is not a certain hypocrisy in the huge amount of attention- or rather the small amount of attention that the daily bombings in Iraq are not having.
In any situation in which conflict is resolved by resorting to the use of force, or the threat of force, the final resolution will be determined by the means used to arrive at that end. Means determine ends.

Whether it is Black Block, Uncle Sam, Jihad or Big Daddy, the use of power and force is the easy choice. The litmus test of any strategy or policy can always be considered under the light of this simple formula: is it coercive, or is it collaborative? Could we have collaborated with Saddam? (I’m hearing those voices already!) Yes: we can only collaborate if we want to achieve peace. What if we had sent to the mid-east an “army” of tens of thousands of artists, poets, writers, musicians, doctors, sociologists, psychologists, children, elders, scientists, builders, etc., all crashing the borders with magic-ray zappers of love and respect. What if……
