    I read this great post via Seth Godin's blog yesterday...

    Last night I was kindly invited by Hugh MacLeod to attend a preview screening of David Mackenzie's new film Hallam Foe . This is a pretty dark film but really fascinating and tell's the story of a young guys struggle to come to terms with the death of his mother. At times it treads a really fine line...

Over the past couple of weeks there's been some really interesting announcements...
  • Blog Post: World's first IT guy...

    This should resonate pretty well with anyone who's worked in IT longer than about 5 minutes. Oh and it perhaps goes without saying that I'd rather be using SoapBox to publish this video but it doesn't appear to be up there. Enjoy. Technorati Tags: Microsoft , Fun , Blogging
  • Blog Post: Google vs. Live Search

  • Blog Post: Is Budweiser the next YouTube?

    God I hope not - TV can't taste that bad - although I do like the idea of mixing two of the world's greatest inventions TV and beer. I think this will happen more and more: the Internet now competes head-on with TV as a platform for delivering rich media content. Maybe Bud is not so bad after all Bud...
