Returning from the UK on a much delayed BA flight, busy transferring printing ink from the FT to my fingers I discover that “Ruminations” has been quoted by the FT in its regular Monday coverage of the blogosphere. The quotation came from Russian Energy Policy 2.0. It would appear that the section does not appear online.
The first realization is that I might want to make greater use of a grammar checker....
Being outed is genuinely not a good thing.
Sunday's newspapers were full of Rosneft and Clara Furse's letter to Putin on behalf of Bill Browder (as a lobbying effort it was a mistake.) I have no desire to lift my head above the parapet, again, and turned down a request for comment to the FT recently on that basis. This blog makes me no money, gains me no friends, influences no one and adds nothing to my personal wealth. It would interfere with my day job, if I had one.......
This blog came about because of my interest in the medium and its role in the future of media and the technology industry. Over time I have found that it is a very useful way to clarify my thinking and poke fun at Russia and the misconceptions about it. My regular (i.e. return) readership is very small; I either knew you personally already, which is why you are reading this, or have a virtual relationship with you as a result of my meanderings.
My next “big thing” will once again cause my head to be lifted above the parapet. My initial reaction was to close Ruminations down, but I'll keep it bubbling along - because life is too short.
