Welcome to Where Worlds Collide, a website that’s been around in some shape or form since the late 1990s.

As the title suggests, it covers a wide range of topics. There’s music news and reviews from the world of progressive rock and metal. There are thoughts on software development from the perspective of a software tester. There’s stuff about trains, science-fiction, and games. And there are political thinkpieces guaranteed to get up the noses of anyone who is either too far to the right or too far to the left.

Since it’s a rare person who is deeply interested in every single one of those things, the site is organised into different blogs for different topics. So if you really can’t stand our taste in music or are appalled by our politics, dive into the things that do interest you.

And if you still want to read everything, there’s always the “All Posts” view.

As we remember the fallen on the anniversary of the end of World War One, the best memorial is to avoid sleepwalking into another entirely avoidable global war.
