    There Isn’t An App For That

    Posted on by

    Want to upload photos to multiple social networking and photo sharing sites, such as Flickr and Twitpic? There’s an app for that. Pixelpipe seems to work for me. Want to update your status on multiple social networking sites, such as Twitter and Facebook? There’s an app for that. Tweetdeck seems to work for me. Want… Read more »

    (Geo) Chicken and Egg (The Problem with Press Releases)

    Posted on by

    There’s a danger in looking at too many press releases; you can easily come to think that the view of the world that these pieces of writing portray are a fair and accurate representation of the real world. Thus both myself and the ever readable James Fee were vastly amused to see Michael Arrington’s TechCrunch… Read more »

    The 3 W’s of Geo (and hyperlocal deities and a pachyderm)

    Posted on by

    Earlier this week, Jeremy Morley from the Centre for Geospatial Research at the University of Nottingham and Muki Haklay at University College London got in touch with me. The GIS Research UK Conference was in full swing, and OpenStreetMap founder Steve Coast had had to drop out of the conference due to ill health; would… Read more »

    Deliciousness: lost rivers, maps, dogs, fonts, alphabets, tees, bacon, lots of bacon, coffee & KitKats

    Posted on by

    Forgive me; it’s been 5 conferences and 2 months since my last Deliciousness post and I offer this one up by way of atonement. Stamford Brook, Parr’s Ditch, Counter’s Creek … all part of the network of lost rivers beneath the streets of London. I grew up next to and played in one of them,… Read more »

    Through the Window # 4

    Posted on by

    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… Read more »

    Where 2.0 – Hype (or Local?)

    Posted on by

    Sometimes writing a talk and putting together an accompanying slide deck is an education in itself. You set out with a point you want to make and in researching the evidence to back up your assertions you find out that the point you originally wanted to make isn’t actually correct. You could give up at… Read more »

    Through The Window # 3

    Posted on by

    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… Read more »

    Mental Note to Self

    Posted on by

    I’d been told that the lesser spotted flight upgrade does happen. But despite travelling the Heathrow to San Francisco route on British Airways roughly once every three months for the best part of four years, despite knowing at least three members of the BA cabin crew who put me down on the upgrade list (but… Read more »

    The Trinity of Geo (Both Redux and Somewhat Late)

    Posted on by

    In October of 2009 I wrote that the trinity of geo was going to hit New York City. Translated, this meant that myself, Tom Coates (the man behind the creation of Fire Eagle and now roving Yahoo! Product Manager for User Location) and Aaron Cope (then chief geo wrangler and trouble maker at Flickr and… Read more »

    Geo on the Horizon at Horizon Geo

    Posted on by

    Last Friday I ventured north to Nottingham, along with Ed Parsons, Steven Feldman and Muki Haklay to attend the one day Supporting the Contextual Footprint event run by the Horizon Digital Economy Research institute at the University of Nottingham. Along the way I discovered a manner of tracking my journey that I’d hadn’t previously considered, but that’s covered… Read more »
