    Winter, Followed by Spring and Back to Winter Again

    Posted on by

    I’ve never been a massive fan of Crowded House but 1991’s Four Seasons in One Day could have been written with this weekend’s weather in mind. We started with Winter (cold, wet, miserably damp), followed by Spring (heavy showers, glorious sunshine and the odd rainbow or two), followed by Summer (clear blue skies). Then this morning,… Read more »

    Mashup, Location and London

    Posted on by

    Last night I was at LBi in the old Truman Brewery on London’s Brick Lane for Mashup’s Location … It’s Moving On. I’ve spoken at a Mashup event once or twice before but this time the organising team threw caution to the wind and asked me to chair the panel discussion. Prior to kicking the… Read more »

    Deliciousness: hairy landings, Twitter (mis)identity, escaped cat, the United States of Facebook and mapme.at

    Posted on by

    The latest batch of social bookmarks from my Delicious stream: Hamburg airport + Lufthansa plane + storm = a flight I’d really prefer not to be on. Dennys publicise their Twitter stream only to discover that it’s not actually theirs and Dennys Hsieh in Taiwan gets a lot more attention than he bargained for. Geek… Read more »

    Steaming Crab Dung?

    Posted on by

    Yes I know it’s short for Dungeness Crab (Steamed) but that’s not what it says on the receipt is it? I feel sorry for the sole pan fried Monk as well … Written and posted from home (51.427051, -0.333344)

    Contextual Location (and Echoecho Redux)

    Posted on by

    I recently wrote about echoecho, an SMS based location sharing service and rather dismissed it as another PlayTxt or DodgeBall, both of which are now shuttered, and argued that EchoEcho fails my Theory of Stuff. Nick Bicanic, the CEO of Purpose Wireless, the company behind echoecho was good enough to look me up and drop… Read more »

    Deliciousness: ringing phones, suicide linux, Flickr plugins, editing, zoomable maps and upsidedownness

    Posted on by

    Today’s social bookmarking deliciousness, from down the back of the internet. Got a colleague who keeps wandering away from their desk and leaving their mobile phone behind, which then keeps on ringing? Maybe they need one of these signs left on their desk. Maybe. Fancy a challenge? How many times a day do you type… Read more »

    I Can’t Get No Sleep

    Posted on by

    “And here we are, half past two in the morning. I can’t get no sleep” A slight mangling of the lyrics to the Faithless classic, Insomnia, as Maxi Jazz lamented about being wide awake at 3.30 AM whereas I am most definitely awake an hour earlier. And not for the first time either. This is… Read more »

    The Use Case for “where’s my train?”

    Posted on by

    As Paul Clarke has pointed out on his blog, not once, but twice, “I assert that train operators know where their assets are: it would be irresponsible if they didn’t. And that this information is held within their internal systems“. Here’s a good use case for his proposed solution … wheresmytrain … Piccadilly Circus Tube… Read more »

    A Posterous Wish List

    Posted on by

    I’ve been using Posterous for a while now, a quick trawl back through the archives shows the first post I wrote via the service was in August 2009, and I’ve been using it ever since. It’s fiendishly simple and works like this :- I write a blog post in my email client and send it to post@posterous.com…. Read more »
