Google Earth Song

13.6.2006 by Chris N

What's the best thing that Google's ever done? Adwords, that's pretty clever if you're a businessy type. Analytics, that's pretty cool if you're a webmastery type. The search engine itself, that's pretty fantastic if you're any type at all (unless…

Without a Safety Net

9.6.2006 by Chris N

I recently moved home and found myself without a toaster, without an ironing board, without a bookcase and - most irritatingly of all - without a net connection. How on earth would I survive? Reasonably easily, as it turned out.…

Web Individuality

5.6.2006 by Mother Superior

There is no more eclectic a community than the world wide web and it is a hot bed of innovation and experimentation. But in order to make money it's a true test in individualism. This weekend I heard the news…

Four Good Things

2.6.2006 by Chris N

It's Friday, it's sunny, and in between bouts of selectitis I'm writing the UKFast blog. What could be better? Now I realise that most of the time here, I'm either attacking or generally moaning about all sorts of technical things.…

Bringing the New Web to the Uninitiated

25.5.2006 by Mother Superior

How do you bring web developments like RSS, blogging and Wiki to a wider audience and encourage use even from technophobes? There are still many businesses using the Internet only because they feel they should be a part of it.…

World Wide Web Conference

24.5.2006 by Mother Superior

The World Wide Web Conference 2006 is on this week in Edinburgh and the buzz today surrounded the 'semantic web.' For many, the semantic web is the real Web 2.0. I'd recommend a read of a BBC report that discusses…

TV Times

23.5.2006 by Chris N

This year Big Brother rolled out its uber-trashy all-seeing televisual eyes amidst a welter of warnings - 'kiss goodbye to your summer' cried everyone from Heat magazine to BB's own increasingly cartoonish Davina McCall. There's a grain of truth in…
