  • Blog Post: The Power of Farming

    Great quote in this month's Edge Magazine on "Moment of the Decade" from Playfish CEO, Kristian Segerstrale : "I'll pick the launch of the Facebook platform. In little more than two years Facebook have created a game platform that has grown to more than 250 million monthly active players...
  • Blog Post: Don’t Hassle Me With Your Synchronicity

    I was taking part in a “learning opportunity” (old money: training course) last week. In typical Microsoft-style, most attendees took along a laptop (they always say they’re taking notes, but we know…). Anyway, in a break from the norm, the facilitator suggested that it was a bit rude – or at least might...
  • Blog Post: Charging For Stuff

    On the other hand, whilst the advertising models of the internet may have enabled the long tail on the internet, can Free really be the future? How many other industries out there operate and innovate on the basis of giving away their stuff? 37 Signals seem to think that free is not the future ( as picked...
  • Blog Post: Little Promises Waiting To Be Broken

    Great tweet from @kathysierra (most of them are of course): Too true. One of the things I love about agile or lean methodologies - read more from my friend Portia here – is not the benefits they have for the actual process of software development, but the practices they introduce that empower the team...
  • Blog Post: But which is better? Twitter or Tumblr

    Only one way to find out… FIGHT. Actually, I was a bit dismayed to see Harry Hill mention the user-friendliness of Macs on TV Burp at the weekend. Et tu Harry? One of the most appealing things about Twitter is the basic lack of rules – just type some stuff – but the elegance of using some of the features...
  • Blog Post: Wigadoo, BizSpark, Seth Godin and 1st Birthday Parties

    If you could see my office, then you’d know I sit in the same cluster as Lars . But you don’t so I’m mentioning it here. One of the handy things about sitting next to Lars (apart from the tidiness and general hospitality) is that he keeps me up to date on the startup scene such as his bent, handling...
  • Blog Post: Twit T-w00t

    I like Twitter , really I do, but I don’t go for all this commentary on its future as a platform. But when my good mate @voleshafter begins using it, and then (let’s leave @stephenfry and @wossy aside for a moment) Tim Lovejoy (sorry Tim, I couldn’t be bothered to look for your twag) talks about it on...
  • Blog Post: Ad-Supported Chicken

    This particular post brought to you by the “Things You Think Up Whilst Bored At An Airport” department. Blooders was talking about the supermarket price war and, for instance, the very cheap price of chicken, which lead him to suggest that the notion of ad-supported chicken might be viable. It is an...
  • Blog Post: Aggregation Aggravation

    As I was upgrading my blog I was looking at the release notes around support for APML ( you can see my APML here ). I feel the need to subscribe to many blogs to keep myself abreast of developments across the varying industries and technologies I look at. Adding one or two too many news aggregators can...
  • Blog Post: Investing in the Long Tail

    From the Long Tail blog, Chris Anderson provides a response to a great HBR article entitled “Should You Invest in The Long Tail?”. Clearly the focus of the article is about the pressing matters facing producers and retailers, but it’s relevant to all of us Web 2.0 types in any case. I agree with Chris...
