  • Is twitter changing your blogging habits?

    is twitter changing your blogging habits? (original post) Yes and no. Twitter is replacing instant messaging and chatrooms. It’s an open method by which for people to communicate instantly with others. It’s also about the overheard conversation although that term has dissapeared. What does “overheard” mean? Well simply that whenever two people discuss a topic […]

  • Freemind – Mindmapping

    It’s easy to get ideas but it’s harder to organise them and that’s where mind mapping software like Freemind comes in. It’s an easy to use open source solution that allows to create and share mind maps. I originally came across it when experimenting with it’s ipod touch and iphone counterpart, Ibluesky. It’s intuitive, allows […]

  • The macbook and macbook pro – thoughts on the touchpad.

    Today I went to try the new macbook pro and macbooks and I found that I prefered the macbook to the other device. I like that the keyboard is there and there’s nothing to the side. it’s a better feeling machine for when you move around. The biggest difference between these two machines and older […]

  • The Social Media Autumn

    Liz Strauss wrote about the leaves and the trees and that got me thinking of the Social Media autumn. It’s the time of the year when everyone gets back to work after summer and they no longer have as much time to be sociable, whether online or offline and as the trees remains so the […]

  • The online digital self

    In 1999 I decided that I would spend 21 days without touching a computer once. That’s because I was in Tanzania for a trip during which we helped to build schools for children in the area. I had decided to do that because so many spoke about the illness of spending too much time online, […]

  • The Francofous like to migrate

    The Francofous are part of the seesmic community and can be differentiated by their ability to speak french and their avatars. Originally formed around Seesmic and twitter they are now migrating to both plurk and phreadz, two services I have talked about in the past. What is nice about this community is that it’s a […]

It allows for the sharing of multimedia files straight from your mobile phone to a website where each media content is added to a thread, hence the name phreadz. There is a simple idea behind this site. Conversations are now […]

  • Touch typing on the N95 8GB

    Whilst at a number of concerts I had to type fast, very fast on a mobile phone keyboard. Within a very short time I began touch typing. I can type whilst looking around. That’s a useful feature of certain phones. It’s useful because it means the keyboard is well designed. Are there many mobile devices […]
