…to Donna for passing on her details to Shel and Neville, and in particular raising their interest over the INA. I was putting together a podcast with an audio report from Donna about her disappointment with the INA and her distancing herself from them. But my hard drive crashed so I had no chance to […]

Just wanted to say ‘thank you’ to some very kind folks who mentioned me even though I had dropped off the radar. Heidi Miller very kindly mentions my blog and podcast in her Diary of a Shameless Self-Promoter #15 podcast. Heidi just gets better and better at this podcasting thing – as indeed a professional […]

It’s been nearly a fortnight since I last set foot in the blogosphere. What’s happened in the meantime – anything I should have worried about? 1/26th of a year is a long time for the blogosphere: 14 days, 336 hours, 20160 minutes, 1209600 seconds… Did I really miss anything by not being plugged in, anything […]

All quiet on the Western Front

Arggghh!!! I bought a lemon! Having almost completely backed up my notebook’s hardrive, but not having backed up Outlook, my hardrive failed. Without warning. I was backing up simply because I wanted to format+c: to reload Windows and try and partition my drive (everything is on C: which is a very dangerous place to have […]

I know, I know… I’m supposed to be on holiday. But when you get an email from someone as mind-bogglingly brilliant as Mr Godin you sit up and take notice. He very flatteringly took the time to email me and thank me for thanking him for stretching my brain. As I pointed out to him, […]

Having been firmly reminded by Donna of the importance of giving good heads, I saw this post’s headline on a bus this morning and it instantly cheered me up (try living with a teenage boy for testing your stress levels! {grin}). I found myself humming the song over and over again in my head, bringing […]

Lee goes on holiday – is Lee dead?

I still have to get my head around Scoble’s recent multiple assertions (latest one here) that you either be first into the conversation or be considered dead. That’s easy for a well-connected A-lister with tons of time on his hands (okay, maybe an exaggeration, but blogging IS a part of his job), but what about […]

Blog versus website – usability issue

Following on from the ‘Net Rage‘ report by Catalyst that is definately shaking up a few heads within our community, I am going to take the break to think about how I can improve the usability of this blog for non-blog-savvy guests. I’ve already added a ‘What is RSS’ button courtesy of Alexandra Samuel, and […]

Holidays are here again…

Just a heads-up… I’m off next week for a break. My wife has insisted I don’t bring my notebook so unless something really big happens and I can find a web cafe I will be sotto voce. It will be interesting to see what happens to my subscriber numbers if I am not posting… Donna, […]
