Who's afraid of the big bad blog?

posted on 28th June 2006 by Jon

At a networking event the other night I was having a lengthy discussion / argument with the UK Director of Comms for Raytheon (US Defence contractor and maker of many a WMD). She would not accept that her company needed help on social media issues. It wasn’t until after the event that I found … read more »

Dear Sirs,

I am writing to express my disgust at the comments made by Mr Rich in his post “England: Classless, Rubbish and Boring” which were tantamount to treason. I’ll admit that England’s performances have been far from inspiring but that’s missing the point. When … read more »

England Lethargy

posted on 27th June 2006 by Laurence

At the risk of being lynched (it’s a low risk i realise), I just want to go on record and say that I am thoroughly unenthused about the England football team. I consider myself to be a fan of the beautiful game - which is exactly the reason why I feel nothing for the national team.

Recently and much belatedly I finally got around to listening to some of the podcasts from the Carson Workshop’s ”The Future of Web Apps” summit which was held in February. Being a novice programmer I did wonder beforehand how much would go straight over my head but the talk by … read more »

when will i see you again

posted on 20th June 2006 by Laurence

Alas, a sad day for me as it’s probably the last time I see yet another one of my cars.

The first one was stolen by some young ne’er-do-wells and recovered days later looking like it had been eaten from the inside. Of course, I had to claim insurance and will be financially punished … read more »

Social networking is big, apparently

posted on 19th June 2006 by Laurence

Google Earth - coming of age?

posted on 13th June 2006 by Jon

Google is finally adding geographic-coding support to Google maps (version 4.0 is now being released) so developers can get the coordinates for a street address.

posted on 12th June 2006 by Laurence

Gawker, the celeb gossip blog, has been forced to block access to UK visitors after it was judged to have breached UK copyright laws. (read about more on the guardian website http://observer.guardian.co.uk/uk_news/story/0,,1794995,00.html).

BBC let-down

posted on 12th June 2006 by Jon

Working in a male dominated office has obvious implications at this time of year. Firstly, boys tend to complain more than girls about heat and what temperature the air conditioning should be set at. Secondly, and more importantly, the World Cup is here and we all want to watch as much football as … read more »
