So exactly how useful are peer-reviews?

I was gonna get this sexy-looking piece of kit but darn, look at those reviews, one guy is saying it’s great, the next it sucks… Anyone had a go out there wants to point me in the right direction?

The language of co-creation;-)

BBC mobile news

Been playing with the Flash client for BBC News. It’s another example of a technology maturing and converging to the point where it just works. I think this longtime Flash-avoider may have found a new friend in Fl...


Holiday (at last)

Mucking about in the Pyrenees. On holiday and offline (largely). Back on Monday:-)



So I got three-and-a-half hours sleep last night and I started work at 05:00 this morning.

So is it still a meme the second (or third) time it comes around?

Remember the old corporate anthem, Our vision of global strategy by good old KPMG? It established the corporate anthems meme (it was Chris Raettig who started the meme proper…) which ran and ran with contributions...

Cadbury creme egg cake

Mainly I'm telling you this because it permits me to use the word "viscosity" and I never get to do that.
