Social media and things

September 1st, 2009 Comments Off

I’ve started a new tumblr thing which will be a home for all the social media and web futures links that have been filling up the blog on a daily basis. I do this slightly wary of coming across as “another self proclaimed ‘social media expert’ twat“, but there you go. The shifting ways in […]

I’m going to mess around with Apture, a multimedia service that let’s you embed multimedia and reference links without C&Ping embed code and displays the results in a way that I hope isn’t too obtrusive while being easier than clicking on a link. I don’t know if I’ll persevere with it, but I do know […]

Still Orange

Those bloody balloons are still bobbing up and down in the corner and I can’t remember where I stuck the script that I need to delete. Bear with me. Edit: Gotcha.

Where have the words gone?

May 21st, 2008 Comments Off

It started with the nice weather, and then that mutated into heavy work stuff. And now I’m not sure what the excuse is, but even the occasional lunchtime blog has become a bit of a struggle. As for Bloglines (currently sitting on 2575 unread), I’m exhausted by it. It feels like I’ve stepped away from […]

Papa’s got a brand new template. It’s a bit messy at the moment though – I haven’t worked out how to shrink the space in the sidebars. Or, indeed, how to make it look nice, full stop. And I’m not sure how to jump from categories to tags. Bear with me.

In a vague attempt to get MM moving again,  I’ve added my delicious  links feed. Ideally they’d just appear in the RSS feed and not on the home page, but I haven’t worked out how to make that work. I do this internet lark for a living, you know…


Usmanov vs the world

September 22nd, 2007 14 Comments

So there’s an Uzbek billionaire trying to get his grubby sausage-fingered mits into the club I love. Outspoken ex-British Ambassador of Uzbekistan, Craig Murray, posts some accusations about Usmanov’s past on his website which don’t paint Usmanov in a particularly pretty light. Usmanov’s City solicitors Schillings then bully Murray’s ISP into taking down his site […]

Lazy tumblring me

April 4th, 2007 Comments Off

What with a bit of a holiday, swiftly followed by a manic week at ExCeL (I’m beginning to love the ridiculous kiddie-txt name of the place) for D&AD judging. I (honest guv) haven’t had much of a chance to show my face around here. Another problem has been the discovery of tumblr, via crack unit, […]

amaryllis flower [melting man] Comment: “Punts, etc”

March 9th, 2007 2 Comments

I’m am going to find you and then I am going to slowly and painfully keeell you. Do other people get hit in the region of 30-50 times a day by the same fucking spammer? I’m going to have to sort out some comment protection I suppose. It’s a bit like not living in the […]
