And in a follow-up to the Allan Jenkins scraping saga comes word that this humble author is himself being ‘scraped’ http://spaces.msn.com/taghome319/blog/cns!468438732578142D!111.entry It’s not blogger spam sites pinching my content anymore (although some still are), it’s now msn spaces pinching content. So do I sue BillG? As Henriette Weber Anderson says: “I mean – yeah the […]

My good friend Bruce Macky at Dymocks in Adelaide sends me great emails, many with amusing videos or jpgs and jokes. Today he sent me some absolutely brilliant examples of story-telling via an image. I have no idea where he got the pictures from, although the person who sent them to him claimed they were from […]

Neville has trouble with RocketPost

Aurora, Illinois is going to get free, city-wide Wi-Fi. That’s 42 square miles and 170,000 residents who will benefit from a service paid for by advertising. Nice. Wonder when Adelaide will benefit from such a service? In a bizarre twist to the ‘cartoons’ fiasco that has fanned the flames of extremism, South Park is going […]

Pinch from Jenkins? Are you mad??

in Uncategorized

Inadvertently it seems I caused my fellow co-owner of the Better Desirable Roasted Communications Cafe empire, the suave and debonair Allan Jenkins, some indigestion over brekkie. A Technorati ego search found that my name was very flatteringly mentioned by him not only on his own blog, but at http://allanjenkins.mobitype.com/. Intrigued at a blog that seemed […]

There’s an amazing interview you must check out. Andrea Weckerle in Washington recently had dinner with Rick Klau, VP Bus Dev at Feedburner. [Note: for those new to the social web, or Web2.0, or blogging or podcasting, Feedburner is the defacto 'standard' third-party feed service - I insist all of my clients use their services]. […]

Today is the one year anniversary of my blogging. It all started soooooo long ago (17th March 2005), with a brief and innocent post entitled, ‘Welcome‘ Hi, Just wanted to welcome you and let you know this blog will update on an irregular basis – because work often gets in the way!

Shhh!… Secret Squirrel I recently found a new password manager and, eager as ever to waste more hours rather than doing something truly productive — say, housework — I have just downloaded and installed it. As the manufacturers, Vortex, say, How many different passwords and usernames do you need to remember? Many of us try […]
