A bit about me

Elian Chali

My name is Angus Macdonald (Gus to those who know me) and I’m interested in the way the world is changing, particularly where this change is technology driven. This blog provides me with a space where I can throw up material and hopefully get some feedback from the wider world.


You can also find my digital presence in other corners. I tweet on issues relating to digital and general trends here and a more personal presence here which tends to focus on cycling and London.

I’ve had a Tumblr running for a few years and this has gone from a general scrapbook to one that looks exclusively at cycling. It’s been a great opportunity to foster an audience and tends to be much more visually led.

I’ve got a less than photographic memory and have been using Pinboard as my ‘external hard drive’ after switching from Delicious.  Here you will find a broad range of content added and tagged (subject; publisher; date) with content reflecting my personal and professional interests.

Podcasts have become something of a recent passion and you can check out some of my favourites here.

You can also get a further window into my world by checking out Flickr, Instagram, Pinterest, and Last.fm. My efforts on Strava are not worth announcing to the world…

Finally, you can have a look at my professional world at LinkedIn. I am currently freelancing and open to new opportunities.

  1. Quite good posting. I just now discovered your site and also tried to mention that I’ve truly truly liked exploring your blog post blogposts. Of course I will be opting-in as part of your rss using this program . expecting you are submitting once again shortly!

  2. Hello Angus,

    I have recently come across your blog and your social channels. I have enjoyed reading some of your pieces, especially those in the ‘thought starters’ section. We are currently working with different bloggers, journalists and companies for content creation and promotion. I was wondering if you would be interested in this, we could discuss the details further once you get back to me.

    Kind Regards,

    Johana Leeflang
