There are many things I’ve learnt through staying in hotels in Berlin. Firstly and most importantly, I miss my family terribly. Secondly, whenever you see a hotel described as boutique it seems to mean interesting interior design that you might like to see in a magazine but which you probably wouldn’t want to live with […]

After a year’s break, I’m back at O’Reilly’s Where 2.0 conference, now rebranded as simply the Where Conference. This year, the conference has slipped north from its Valley roots and taken up residence in the Marriott Marquis hotel in the heart of downtown San Francisco. The view from the window of my room on the […]

This is the ninth “through the window” type of post I’ve written and is definitely the last for the year. It’s the view of Atlanta’s Midtown skyline, from the Palomar Kimpton hotel, late at night, after everyone’s gone home and just the buildings and lights remain. There’s something completely compelling to me about these night […]

By my reckoning, this is the eighth “through the window” post I’ve written. Mostly the view through the window is the same, day in, day out, but sometimes it gets interesting. Like this night-time view of Chicago’s Magnificent Mile. Taken from the window of my room on the 17th. floor of Chicago’s Intercontinental Hotel, this […]

At the weekend myself and the rest of the Ovi Places team found ourselves re-geolocated from the Nokia office in Invalidenstraße in the Mitte district of Berlin to a new office in Schönhauser Allee in the Prenzlauer Berg district. While the office coffee hasn’t improved, the view from my desk certainly has. From left to […]

And in a change from my normal bloggage, I’m forsaking the usual posts about matters geo, location and maps and briefly returning to my occasional “through the window” series of posts. I’m back in Berlin at the Radisson Blu hotel in the Mitte district. It’s not every day you get to look through your hotel […]

… and I’m here in the capital and largest city of the Netherlands for the first Location Business Summit with Walter Andrag and Bob Upham from Yahoo! Geo Technologies and Anil Patel and Chris Heilmann from YDN, the Yahoo! Developer Network. Another city, another hotel so this would be a good time for the obligatory […]

The week before last I was in downtown San Jose for the annual geofest that is O’Reilly’s Where 2.0 conference and the view from the hotel window wasn’t that dramatic by any stretch of the imagination. Last week I was on holiday in Turkey and the view from the window of the Xanadu Resort Hotel […]

The view from the window has changed again. Last week I was deep in the Silicon Valley suburbia staying with good friends in Campbell, where the sunrises were gorgeous. This week I’m deep in the heart of the city nicknamed The Capital of Silicon Valley, San Jose. The view from the window isn’t nearly as […]

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 … […]
