  • Blog Post: Windows Live – the latest incarnation

    I’m considerably later than most of the pundits out there in writing about the latest release of Windows Live, but I’ve been busy exploring the new features in my new Live platform and wanted a better impression of what has been delivered before clicking the keys of my laptop. I guess many of you...
  • Blog Post: Boiling frogs – when change creeps up around you

    In recent times it has been fashionable to talk about “cloud services”, and “Software plus Services”, and to consider how Internet-based services supplement, support or replace more conventional IT services provided on campus. And, lo and behold, the occasional story has popped up of universities outsourcing...

  • Blog Post: Microsoft Live @ Edu blog

  • Blog Post: SkyDrive - 5GB of free storage

    I like SkyDrive. Before it was invented, I used to have to load any files I wanted to share onto an FTP site somewhere, and then write clunky links to them. Now, I just drag my files onto my SkyDrive , and then provide a nice graphical link to them, like this: But up until now, it's been called Windows...

  • Blog Post: When data goes bad...a student study

    We've been doing a lot of work with students recently, and from that I've learnt quite a bit about their ICT habits. Two years ago universities reported that three-quarters of students turn up with their own PC, with some reporting that 99% of students do. Judging on the research panels we've held recently...
  • Blog Post: What do you do when you have to tell all your students your campus is closed?

    Okay, this doesn't happen every day (thank goodness), but let's suppose that you've got an important message, for all of your students, and which is time critical. It may represent part of your contingency planning, or it may be that there are certain key notices which you really want to reach all students...
  • Blog Post: What can you do with a 2GB inbox?

    I'm now quite comfortable with the thought of a 2GB inbox in the sky. In fact, I've now had this for quite some time but I've always been thinking about how on earth I'll ever get anywhere like close to filling it up and it's always been languishing in the single digit percent of utilisation. So what...

    I predict that over the next few months I'm going to spending quite a bit of time thinking about, and writing about, web-based services, and the integration between traditional desktop applications and web-based applications and services.
