Airport security has become a joke

I was reading a post of Dennis’ recently about the stupidity of airport security regulations and their inconsistent implementation recently and I got to thinking.

First you couldn’t bring guns on a plane, so the terrorists innovated,
Then you couldn’t bring box cutters, nail clippers, scissors on planes, so the terrorists innovated
Then you had to take off your belt and have your shoes scanned, so the terrorists innovated again
Now you can’t bring liquids on a plane.

I really can’t wait to see what airport security does when the terrorists start using boarding cards as weapons!

The clueless manifesto!

Dennis Howlett wrote up my recent PodLeaders podcast with FreshBook’s Michael McDerment

Dennis said:

I didn’t learn a great deal about the app itself but I learned a heck of a lot about what it means to be in a clients shoes looking at new ways of working. By his own admission, Tom:

‘Couldn’t balance a cheque, let alone the books.’

How many clients do we know like that? I found the show to be truly refreshing because Tom asked all the right questions from the client’s perspective.

Who knew my lack of knowledge could be such an advantage?

I can see whole new vistas opening up. There must be hundreds of jobs about which I know absolutely nothing (brain surgery, astrophysics, IT (oops!)).

I could brand it as The Clueless Manifesto! – “Need a guy who knows absolutely nothing, Tom’s yer only man!â€?
