The Holy Grail of the Kitchen

A Ged-proof cook book:

Precise wording and instructions

  • Easy to read layout
  • Geek cred
  • No poncy pictures or pukka geezers (sorry Jamie, I just can’t cope with those Sainsburys ads, despite the charity work with aspiring catering careerists)

Cooking For Engineers is a no-nonsense guide to fancy food from Crème Brûlée to the best way to cook fish in a pan.

Technology Marketing


Silicon.com moves away from its tech roots, editor Tony Hallett takes time out to look at BT’s new business marketing campaign, the article is a bit shallow on analysis all truth being told, but quite readable none the less. Technology visionary and ex BT Labs head honcho Peter Cochrane raise the possiblity of a new dark side to the future of marketing, holding out the possiblity of internet telephony spam calls: nice (not).

A Rolling Stone Gathers No Moss…


But does interview Gerry Trudeau. Trudeau is not well known, but his work as creator and prime mover behind the Doonesbury cartoon strip is. Rolling Stone magazine has managed to secure a rare interview with Trudeau here. My favourite Doonesbury character is Duke, loosely based on the writer and pioneering gonzo journalist Hunter S Thompson. Incidently Thompson’s Fear & Loathing on the Campaign trail is one of my favourite books.

R U Xperienced?

I clicked on a link whilst surfing CNet’s News.com site reading some of the opinion pieces being written about the new iMac and came across Harvard Business School Working Knowledge a portal containing great articles on business and personal career management.

 

My favourite part of the site was the very readable business histories here. As you would expect from a website from one of the world’s leading business schools the standards of writing is very high, but also easy to read and digest.
