Head Scratcher and Belly Buster Post: Jul and Aug 2016
About These Posts
UPDATED: Aug 22/16.
Here the Mi6 Team will post thoughts, quandaries and stuff that makes us scratch our heads, smile and laugh. They’ll be focused around stuff we’re interested in and that keeps us working of course in the areas of tech, B2B, sales and marketing. We’ll keep things light, airy, entertaining and maybe a bit provocative!

A clear throwback to the Airplane movie series!
After the UK (well England) voted to leave the EU actor Hugh Laurie sent this tweet out.
