Conversation vs. Noise

The title might sound like linkbait, picking on some of the new darlings of social networking, but my question is should we be the services using them in combination, flooding the channels with a lot of noise and little chance of conversation.

Wednesday, January 23rd, 2008

I got tagged by Ben Winter-Giles with 8 things meme, probably in revenge ;-) for my introduction of him at Web Directions South 07.

Here are eight things you probably didn’t know about me:

Twitter did not suck the blogging from me

Thursday, January 10th, 2008

While Molly blames Twitter for her lack of blogging and Mark life, the reason for my lack of blogging of the past few weeks can be attributed to the new train and my desire to get back to a reasonable level of fitness…

NSW government fair trading blogs

Thursday, December 6th, 2007

Researching Government use of web 2.0 technology for this week’s BarCamp Nano, I found the Ripped Off blog. Which allows NSW consumers to tell their stories about being ripped off

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 […]

This is really an experiment to see if what happens …

AKA eight semi-random feeds

After being tagged by Gary for the Eight Pieces of Random meme and putting it off, Kay pushed me into action by her response Eight random things? You’ll be sorry…. So here are eight feeds from my feed reader, not exactly random as I picked the less obvious feeds to highlight.

moblogging, wordpress and a dopod 838pro

Wednesday, May 23rd, 2007
