I got this note at work this morning. This is crazy as it’s now the second time I’ve got the note and for some reason, this company cannot operate outside its scripted customer support parameters. This a very impo...Techno-bollocks,
Just got this from Flickr…
If you can get past the mind-bending idea of plugins having their own plugins, it really shows how plugin developers have taken a place next to strategy consultants, content mavens, and implementation experts in b...Techno-bollocks,
Sitting in the car outside my flat typing this. Thank you open 802.11 networks :-)Techno-bollocks,
I know I do overdo it on the baby content, but I just this minute received this email:
Don’t miss OK/Cancel’s fabulous new ‘re-experiencing’ of their site :-)
So that was fun, if utterly exhausting (started my day 06:00 on Friday and got into my hotel bed at 01:30 only to be kicked awake by little girl at 06:30–and it went downhill from there on the sleep front).Family,
Wey hey! Nicki has scored our little familly an all-expenses-paid press junket to the Dutch capital. Nick and CU-1 left earlier today and are currently enjoying that particular kind of Dutch hospitality (brusque?)...Family,
I want one of these
And in the spirit of lo-fi open source advertising, check this out. Anup Kurian is the director of an independent film showing at the Waterman’s in Brentford. He wrote in asking for help. Read the post, but go see...
A co-worker just passed this around:
Life just got easier it says. This just has to be a piss-take…
Just wanted to register my surprise at the poor quality of BTOpenzone’s wi-fi offering. Apart from the just plain cryptic interface of the wi-fi start page (the page your brower is redirected to when you attempt t...Techno-bollocks,
Just read this nice little emotional roller-coaster from Wil Wheaton’s blog.
Well, Google is courting entertainment marketers apparently. The piece explains how new Google film listings are making studio bosses nervous. There’s some classic old-world thinking
Still waiting to hear back from Fnac (a great place to buy French stuff - iTunes licensing doesn’t allow French ‘variété’ tracks on the UK store grr) re my earlier note to them.
Cher Fnac, Je me fais un devoir de vous informer que (bien qu’ayant été sur le point de le commander) je ne vais pas acheter le cd “Le Fil” de Camille car la présence d’un “Dispositif anticopie numérique” est d...
Just had my first roast potato in I don’t know how long.
From thirdworldtraveler.com but all 14 features might fit us western 1rst worlders quite nicely too…
So yesterday, as the train was about five minutes out of Basingstoke…
We did a day trip to Manchester this Saturday to pick the little girl up. CU-1 spent the week with her cousins Holly, Tom and Eve while Nicki was in Hong Kong and it looks like she barely noticed her parents were ...Family,
I just got a link to a slightly strange article over on Clickz. It’s titled Consumers Less Satisfied With eBay and Amazon and goes into some depth explaining how big e-retailers are diluting their initially focuse...
Just overheard in Waitrose
Well, I just received a link to these configuration instructions for Firefox. A minute to apply and wey hey, better performance :-)Techno-bollocks,
Just fabulous, thank you felicity :-)
Great piece on CSS negotiation. Focus on minimal hacks with emphasis on code fragments that can ‘wilt’ away when negotiated browsers die off…Techno-bollocks,
On the one hand, the deal is an old-fashioned sponsorship arrangement, but Sony’s marketers are testing the waters and this could be an early move towards a new kind of advertising that “does” more than “says”.

Very cool toy by a man called Jim. Colorfields lets you view random flickr images by colour tag. Fun:-)Techno-bollocks,
Just dropped my tax return off at Euston Tower. It closes at 20:00 and there were queues of people snaking around the building. Kind of a funny atmosphere, a bit festive, a bit like first day at school…
This whole anti-terrorist thing is really getting out of control
It’s two o’clock and I’ve been shuffling around the office in my socks. I’ve stepped into my open-back Birkies a few times and joy oh joy, my legs are not acheing :-)
I’m guessing when you read this you’ll be quite a lot older and no doubt these ramblings will be served up in some as yet unimagined way. In any case there’s been a lot going on recently that I haven’t recorded.Family,
So I’m contracting at a place that requires a bit more polish in the old dress code than I’m used to, so I’ve been dusting off my lovely old leather shoes. I’ve got a gorgeous pair of French ones that still look g...
Most good user experience is taken for granted, as is powerful information architecture. Recently I’ve been noticing hidden usability design features that don’t stand out until you put the objet out of its primary...
