  • Blog Post: 10 Levels of Intimacy in Communication

    I saw this over on Marc’s site   and wasn’t sure if they were in some kind of order. Personally, I’d put letter right up there after talking. In this digital, high speed age there is still something very intimate and comforting about a letter. Perhaps it’s because you actually have to take time...
  • Blog Post: How does the Internet see you? Get your online persona calculated

      I’m having a lot of fun with Aaron Zinman's Personas . Zinman is a PhD student in MIT's Sociable Media Group and has produced an addictive natural language processing application to create your online persona in something that looks like a DNA strip. The outcome is questionable based on a few...
  • Blog Post: Feedly To Replace My Google Reader?

    Sadly for my employer it’s stuff like Feedly that will keep Firefox installed on my machine (albeit IE8 remains my default). My pal Jas pointed me to Feely today and I thought I’d seen it before but I hadn’t…it just has one of those familiar Web 2.0 style names. Whatever, it’s a super cool add-on for...

  • Blog Post: Microsoft’s Web Platform

      I meant to blog about this back when we announced it at MIX09 – for anyone who has tried to install Microsoft’s web stack (server, tools, database) the Web Platform is a lifesaver. It used to be a black art to install all the right bits in the right order and make it all work. With the Web Platform...

  • Blog Post: McKinsey, Twitter, Web 2.0 and Social Media

  • Blog Post: Cut Out and Keep Guide to Web 2.0

    Catching up on a few posts I found languishing in my drafts. I like this How to win by using Web 2.0 from the Financial Times, not least because it’s the last place I expected to find it. Without Twitter on there (it should be in the top box) it all seems a bit dated to me though.
  • Blog Post: MTV Music…but not here

    I hopped over to MTV Music which launched last week and lined myself up with a playlist of some of my favourite retro videos from their 16,000+ archive. Major bummer – they’re not available in the UK :( Another reason for me to head back to the US? Looks like nice work in taking the fight to Google though...

  • Blog Post: Climbing Mountains to The Cloud

    Last week I went to the London Girl Geek Dinner 3rd birthday party and saw a few familiar faces and a many new ones. The highlight of the night for me wasn’t the speakers or even bumping in to my Irish based comrade Martha Rotter – it was chatting with a couple of start-ups and getting their candid feedback...
  • Blog Post: Unilever staff use Facebook

      So what? Big deal right? We all use it right? Not so. A lot of organisations are blocking their employees access to Facebook and other sites and services like Instant Messaging, Skype and iTunes. They’re deemed a time waster, security risk or both. I saw this first hand at a friends house last...

  • Blog Post: The State of the Web: Summer 2008

        The State of the Web - Summer 2008 – beautiful work by Matthew Inman. Seems like he holds the same ambition as me to make it in to Wired – though his design work has way more chance than my writing! major hat tip to me old mucker Farrell on this one.
