3.1 ‘Making ends meet’

When you say that someone is ‘poor’, what do you mean?

4.3 Programming and abstraction

In the early 1990s programming an application for the internet was a tough proposition. I remember that I once had an application which required a very simple form of communication with another application located at a remote computer. I used a technology known as Winsocks which required me to carry out some pretty arcane code development just to send a simple test message to another computer and to receive a reply from that computer.

It represents the 'credentials' of a piece of information that support its status and perceived value. It is therefore very important to be able to identify the author, sponsoring body or source of your information.

Why is this important?

The aim of the lecture will be to do demonstrate the need to challenge continuing traditional images of leaders, often depicted at the apex of things, on top of a hill or at the centre of a complex web of activity. I will argue that those nominated as leaders MUST become aware of what I will call the leader's conundrum and complement their inspiration with 99 x perspiration. To appreciate this call, attendees to the lecture as respectfully asked to do the following just before the lecture: a.
