Facebook Fridge

Ever realise Facebook is one big public fridge door? You know, the kind of fridge you left messages on in a share-house when you first left home.

Beta Mentality

Sometimes I wonder (as Wonderwebby does) if the uptake of web2.0, social media and virtual worlds requires a beta mentality.

It also means having a beta mentality towards the content you are [...] Read More

Visual Diary

I now have a book for capturing ideas. A visual diary. I’ve used a visual diary for around 15 years, on and off. This year really sees me needing one to take everywhere, again.
