    Hopes and Dreams

    Posted on by

    This weekend’s clear out uncovered these two items of apparel. The one at the back is a replica shirt from the always-the-underdog- even-when-they-get-to-the-Superbowl. The one at the front is from the, defunct since 1998, World League of American Football and NFL Europe team the London Monarchs.  The former reached the Superbowl four times but have… Read more »

    In the Spirit of Experimentation

    Posted on by

    Posterous is a service that just begs for experimentation; not only because it’s a beautifully simplistic yet rich service but also because the Help and FAQ pages can be a little bit light on detail for some of the less obvious questions; probably to avoid scaring those of a less-power-user-frame-of-mind away. So the Posterous FAQ… Read more »

    Deliciousness: yet more bacon, Snow Leopard, Hitchhiker’s, WhereCamp Europe, under your feet and shell scripts for your baby.

    This week’s trawl through what appeared on the interwebs and made it into my Delicious bookmarks. The march towards all things bacon flavoured continues unabated; now you can get bacon (and mint) flavoured, err, mints and that get-you-going-in-the-morning first cup of coffee can now be bacon flavoured as well. Where’s this going to end? Mac OS X 10.6, AKA… Read more »

    Posted on by

    Stand with your back to the “looks like it’s built out of Lego” St. Gile’s development and you’ll see New Compton Street. Follow it for a while, running parallel to Shaftesbury Avenue and it comes to an abrupt end, due to someone building 125 Shaftesbury Avenue, which is also the Yahoo! London office, right across it….

    Online There’s More Than One of You

    Posted on by

    A couple of weeks ago I wrote an article on this blog that highlighted the issues around managing our digital identity. “Managing our digital identity through those sources we know about is a challenge for a significant percentage of the online population” Then this morning, (ex Yahoo!) Cathy Ma posted a link to her recent… Read more »

    Deliciousness: more bacon, UK geek location, your PIN number, birds tweeting, Ohio as a piano, OMG and WTF and UNIX turns 40.

    A semi regular, almost weekly, trawl through the latest stuff on the interwebs bookmarked on Delicious. This fad for all things bacon flavoured is getting out of hand; a few weeks back it was bacon flavoured vodka and now you can get bacon flavoured lip balm.
