The Columns

"By way of introduction, some time around the middle of March 2021 I made a commitment to write a weekly 'mini-column' until (at least) the FITCC** AGM in June, and to post them on <https://NextDoor.co.uk/>, a 'hyper-local' social networking site. They didn't stay 'mini-' for very long - about a fortnight in fact. At the end of July I decided to move everything onto <https://SubStack.com/>. Since I'd already created a <https://WordPress.com/> site - <https://DraytonMark.WordPress.com/> - I kept the same prefix, hence <https://DraytonMark.SubStack.com/>. -M"[1]
