I was asked to list my 10 favourite web sites. This is difficult to answer as the World Wide Web is an integral part of my professional and personal life.
I have many favourite and interesting sites so here is a selection of ten sites for your exploration.
Instagram. Isn’t this some sort of social media thing that young people use to share photos of their food, browsing the latest fashions or posting daring selfies?
I like using Instagram which may come as a surprise to younger readers as I am a Baby Boomer and much older than the typical teenager or 20-something who have naturally embraced this social network.

What is it like to learn the skill of computer programming? This was the question in a recent online Python programming course. Students were asked to respond to an essay question on the challenges of learning to program, so here are my thoughts.
Some people think computer programming is difficult to learn because they are “not good at logic” or “not a computer person”. Taking an attitude that programming is hard will prevent learning.
Programming is a cognitive skill, like doing mathematics problems, writing English or drawing. It is possible to learn these skills with the right attitude, perseverance and time to learn and explore.
