Have you ever seen the “contact forms” that are present on a lot of companies offering services such as Broadband, Telephone Lines, cars, bikes et al?
I have and I’m sick of seeing them. Why do these dumbasses put these forms? They are of no utility except for the sole purpose of harvesting email address, phone numbers & other contact details so that they can shove their promotional material down your throat and spam you to eternity.  Over the past couple of years that…

The day I landed in Austin, when I was being driven back, I’d seen this seemingly nice place – North by North West and my colleague told me its a beer brewery and restaurant, and I made a mental note to check it out.
