Human Cyborg Relations or a Defence Engagement Event.

I wasted a whole 2 hours of my life yesterday lunchtime at a "Defence Engagement" event organised by the Crown Persecution Service to talk about moving criminal practice to the clouds. I know some people might think that we're already there or at least in cloud cuckoo land like most of my clients.

They were advising us of the snappily entitled T3 (transforming through technology) initiative where they are going to abolish paper and we're all going to have to download our papers from "the cloud". Yeah right! It is of course a poorly disguised attempt to pass on the £75,000,000 CPS copying bill to the defence solicitors.

The irony was lost on them when the beleaguered defence lawyer they'd corralled to sell this concept to a jaded bunch of criminal hacks tried to set up his demonstration which failed because he couldn't get a good enough 3G signal!

The high point of the event, was the free lunch and then sharing with us the fact that they actually had a technology project called C3PO. The particular protocol droid delivering this nugget of information just couldn't quite see the funny side (obviously spent too long on the dark side).

So a busy week meant that I made my first session this evening, Proudy and Matt the Cash were discussing whether or not they could do 40 x 100 on 1.30...this was the resulting compromise.
