Misadventures

Busy, busy, busy. Just enough time to give some attention to three car crashes of interest:

1) Spinning out of control - By the way, from now on all my blogposts will actually be written by a 20-year old woman in Dhaka.

2) Blykety-split - We used to be in the same building as this company, and they had fanstastic office furniture, hopefully on flexible leasing terms.

3) That smarts - Haven't seen any coverage of this in the English media, and I'm not sure I fully understand the background here, but it looks to me like a small French smart meter/energy management vendor is actually going to be forced to refund to EDF the equivalent of what consumers have saved by using its product, which is apparently equal to 70 - 80% of its annual revenues. That's rough justice.

You got it about right on 3/

To be fair, it's not just EDF but competitive energy distributors like Poweo as well. Which is to say, mostly EDF.

A wonderful example of political hypocrisy in action.
