  1. Hi Tom,

    Great Blog, very entertaining:)

    I was wondering if you would mind me referencing some of you comments and one of your photos in a conference paper about domestic technology? specifically the ‘blinking router’ lights? If you could contact me via email to discuss it further it would be much appreciated. Many thanks, keep posting.B
