  • Blog Post: Microsoft Wave launched

    Microsoft Wave is a cool new site from our UK team that is something we’ve long been without – a cool site that isn’t trying to sell anything, simply showing the breadth of cool technology that Microsoft is involved in. It’s very much in the spirit of Blue Monster so I was delighted to see that image...
  • Blog Post: Blue Monster Cube Grenades

    [the shelf above my “cube” at home sporting an original] Hugh is on a riff and roll at the moment with Cube Grenades – something his audience has been doing with his stuff for years but he’s only just noticed. Often the way. I’m lucky enough to have a number of Hugh originals both in the standard business...
  • Blog Post: Gapingvoid Galley Goes Live

    My buddy Hugh MacLeod mentioned to me last week he had a new project he was about to reveal and today it’s live. Hugh has finally opened a gallery of his prints - http://www.gapingvoidgallery.com/ – where you can now buy his work. I say finally as within a few months of meeting Hugh I was badgering him...
  • Blog Post: Of Blue Monsters and Tattoo’s

      A number of people including Todd Bishop , BoingBoing , CrunchGear , Dennis Howlett and CNBC have posts about Dan Woodman being laid off from Microsoft and for a while it was floating high on Techmeme. At the very least, Dan’s new blog just got some great juice. For those late to the story, Dan...
  • Blog Post: My Business Card Gets a Service Pack

      It’s been a while since I caught up with my buddy Hugh and under the watchful eye of my boss he pointed out that the business card I snagged from Hugh a while back needed an update. Desktop became devices and now it truly is the Software plus Services business card. So this is my new card. Sort...

  • Blog Post: Microsoft’s Magic Pixie Dust

      A friend just pointed me to Rory’s blog entry from the PDC – it’s a pretty accurate and fun view of what 3 days in the land of Microsoft looks like and I think Rory enjoyed himself. This part made me smile in particular:   But then a Microsoft internal blogger showed me two products - the...
  • Blog Post: ‘Cross The Breeze

    My pal Kris Hoet just posted this great presentation – full of beautiful images and great quotes. I wish I’d created it…but will just have to shamelessly steal from him for my next preso :) As with all good presentations, the slides on their own are not very informative – they require the presenter to...
  • Blog Post: Two Smarts Guys Do Ten Questions

      A great conversation between two of my pals – in fact two of the smartest guys I know. If you haven’t read David’s book you should go get it (disclaimer – I was interviewed for the book Blue Monster gets several pages). If you want to know what happens in a post advertising, post media hype world...
  • Blog Post: Real Blue Monster Stuff

      I spent a day at Microsoft Research in Cambridge yesterday and though I’ve been there before and seen projects like SenseCam yesterday I was truly blown away. The work that this lab in Cambridge does is really quite astonishing. I sat with a group of Microsoft staff and distinguished visitors...
  • Blog Post: The Blue Monster has a great 2nd birthday in LA

    [Blue Monster PDC edition]   The PDC is winding down and it’s been a hell of a week. A week of so many coincidences for me. For a birthday week it’s been incredibly memorable. 5 years ago I was at PDC and also had my birthday here – I had dinner in the same place this week and even got a cocktail...
  • Blog Post: My PR man

      My pal David Brain launched his book “ Crowd Surfing ” last Thursday at the Groucho in London. David is my Mr PR – he’s bloody good at what he does and does it with great humour and passion. In this video he talks about Blue Monster and becomes my PR man….thanks buddy, I love the book and only...
  • Blog Post: Blue Monster lives on

    It’s been a while since I mentioned Blue Monster but I’m glad to say it’s alive and well. I’m in Redmond for the second week and have noticed it around campus a few times this week in Bld 18 and notably out at our Willows campus (photo above). I also noticed is over on Stephen’s blog - UX Evangelist...
  • Blog Post: The Blue Monster book club continues

    The Blue Monster book club expanded last week with Niall Cook’s Enterprise 2.0 . This is the second book that I’m aware of that covers  Blue Monster as a case study – in this case titled Humanizing Microsoft. Niall talks about the role Robert Scoble played until his departure in 2006 and the creation...
  • Blog Post: Crowd Surfing

      My chum David Brain is about release a book on the unsuspecting public and if it’s as good as the man in person or his blog, it promises to be a fine read. Crowd Surfing is available for pre-order now . What’s it all about?   Welcome to the world of the crowd surfer: a world in which a new...

  • Blog Post: Personality Not Included

    This brilliantly titled book arrived at Chez Clayton today.

As I always do when I get a new book like this, I flipped to...
  • Blog Post: A Brand (New) Recipe For Microsoft

    Brace yourself for my longest post in a some time. This topic has been something I’ve been stewing on for a while and finally was motivated to write about when I read Sean Ammirati’s post entitled My Recipe for Microsoft — Act More Like CP+B . He references the recent Fast Company article Can Alex...
  • Blog Post: Scoble’S Social Object

    Scoble’s Social Object – his MacBook Pro. Good to see his still has the Blue Monster sticker on it I gave him at MIX07.
  • Blog Post: Armano on Blue Monster

      David posted a piece about Blue Monster just as I was leaving MIX08 and though he mistook Liveside's Kip Kniskern for a Microsoft employee, his views still hold - there were quite a few softies I saw wandering the floor with the Blue Monster on their laptop or cards. This captured the spirit pretty...
  • Blog Post: Noodling on Doodling

      A while back the Blue Monster appeared in the Financial Times when Stormhoek put it on a bottle of wine for geeks. Now it's in BusinessWeek as Doug MacMillan explores the impact of cartoons and doodling on business. Rock on as Hugh would say :) I spoke with Doug last week and provided answers...
  • Blog Post: Scoble weeps for Microsoft....

      .....and the blogosphere now holds it's breath until Feb 27th as apparently two guys working inside a big company still can change the world. "Curtis Wong and Jonathan Fay, researchers at Microsoft, fired up their machines and showed me something that I can’t tell you about until February...
