    Through the Window Redux

    Posted on by

    The view from my window has changed a lot of recent. Through my office window there’s been St. Giles and Covent Garden in the snow … … and Hanger One on Moffett Field, one of the world’s largest free-standing structures. Through my hotel window I’ve seen the Chrysler Building in New York at sunrise …… Read more »

    Location is a Key Context, But Most People Don’t Know This

    Posted on by

    Like a lot of people, I get most of the information I use, both personally and professionally, from the web; from RSS feeds, from keyword search alerts and from Twitter. The genesis of my recent Theory of Stuff slowly accumulated out of this mishmash of feeds, alerts and status updates. Firstly I read about EchoEcho, a new location based… Read more »

    Deliciousness: typography, bad days, Victoria & Albert geo, inappropriateness for children and Dave

    Posted on by

    I have been remiss; it’s been over 3 months since my last Deliciousness. This needs to be remedied. I don’t usually take note of typography and font related stuff that much (leaving that to Tom Coates who oozes typography enthusiasm and love) but this post, on revisiting the font stack your blog or web site is essential reading. I… Read more »

    Through the Window

    Posted on by

    Looking out of my hotel window I can see into the heart of Silicon Valley in Sunnyvale. What do you mean it’s fairly uninspiring? East of here is Mountain View, home of the Google-plex, west of here is the Yahoo! mothership, which is the reason I’m here and to the south is Cupertino, and 1 Infinite Loop, the… Read more »

    The Airport Security Ritual

    Posted on by

    Post 9/11, post the Shoe Bomber and and post, for want of a better description, the Pants Bomber I’ve had to travel to the United States in the aftermath of a security incident and have had the dubious privilege of witnessing at first hand the incrementally heightened security procedures that have been put in place….

    It’s Time to Stop LAMB (Location Based SPAM) Before It Even Exists

    Posted on by

    We all suffer from SPAM, the unwanted and unsolicited commercial bulk emails that are the reason we have Junk Mail filters and folders in our email clients and servers. A quick glance at the Junk folder for my personal email account shows over 300 of these since the beginning of February alone. If you use some… Read more »

    Sometimes the Hardware is Willing but the Software is Weak

    Posted on by

    I’ve had an HP DeskJet F-something-or-other for a couple of years now. It’s a small grey thing, around the size of a shoe box that prints, scans and photocopies. At least that’s what it said in the brochure and on HP’s web site. It used to sit plugged into the USB port on my AirPort… Read more »

    On The Matter of Blog Comments

    Posted on by

    After last week’s comments troll spat I decided to i) lighten up and ii) take a leaf out of the book of an author and blogger I deeply respect. So, inspired by a post on John Scalzi’s Whatever, I offer up a brief decision making flowchart to aid me, in future, in deciding who does and who… Read more »

    The Theory of Stuff

    Posted on by

    Once again, this is not the post I set out to write. The one I set out to write was called “In Search of Location’s Sweet Spot” and it’s sitting in draft and not yet posted. That’s because before I can submit that post I need to write this one as a warm up act…. Read more »

    No Comment?

    Posted on by

    Why do we blog? It’s a gross simplification but I think the reasons are three-fold. Firstly when you write a blog post you have something to say, you need to find the right words and write them down, albeit virtually. Secondly, you want someone to read what you’ve written. Thirdly, sometimes you want to stimulate… Read more »
