Oz-IA/2007 - Sydney, September 22nd/23rd 2007

With both WDS07 and OZ-IA/2007 rapidly approaching, and a most of the local blogspace reminding people to sign up with Web Directions before the discount pricing ends this Friday at 2200 WST. (You should go at least once Ashul!).

It is time to put in plug for Oz-IA/2007. Disclaimer, by putting the Oz-IA logo on this post, I am will go into the draw to win a free ticket to Oz-IA. However, as soon as registrations opened I bought a ticket, so if I do win the ticket to Oz-IA/2007 I will have to find a fair way to redistribute it.

Web Directions Photo Meme

Tuesday, August 28th, 2007

So Miles has tagged me with Web Directions Photo Meme to celebrate less than a month to go to Web Directions South 2007, that there are more digital cameras than people attending these events and to prove that I actually attended in the past and had a very good time doing so as well as […]

Port80 in Sydney 26 September

Tuesday, August 28th, 2007

The story as I tell it. About fives years ago when Miles was working as a freelance web developer, he felt isolated from others in the insustry. So Miles and a few others set up the Port80 forum and most importantly decided to meet the first Wednesday of each month at a local pub to complain about clients over a few beers…

Thursday, August 23rd, 2007

If you have a blog or website, you want statistics, the best place to get them currently is Google Analytics. The statistics are amazing in both detail and depth, with one exception identifying mobile devices&#8230

Websledge the improved version

Thursday, August 23rd, 2007

Sue of Mobile Technology in TAFE of has taken my WebJam slide show added audio from Greenguy’s video and combined them to produce a much improved version of my presentation without me bouncing around the stage. The resulting discussion is interesting.

Mobile learning

Wednesday, August 22nd, 2007

Sue of Mobile Technology in TAFE just posted an article of providing learning material on mobile phones and pointed out this article about the options of delivering training material via the mobile phone. While I can see real advantages in be able to deliver training material via mobile devices, so student can have their training material on hand and easily accessible in the workplace. It should not be the only channel at present.

The great websledge

aka the art of the 3 minute presentation

The websledge presentation is on slideshare, it has had a couple of minor additions (ie what I should of added earlier). But it really needs an audio track, because the words are far more important than the slides, plus you miss the cheer from the staff of one web design company when they find the have not been left out. I will let you know if the video goes online.

Creating a 3 minute presentation for WebJam is harder than creating a 30 minute presentation for another event…

I would like to thank the people who voted for me. I never thought I win a prize or generate a new word to describe my type of presentation web-sledging. The main aim of my presentation was to entertain the audience, and hopefully get them thinking about how any new sites they develop will look in mobile browsers. Yes I did websledge by demostrating the problems of mobile web on sites created by people I knew would be in the audience (and sorry if I did not pick on your site I only had 3 minutes). I hope it was taken in way intended, all in good fun.
