SXSW day 4 – Lots of Random Things

Matt Biddulph accused me of “blogging like it’s 2003” this week (long posts, complete with photos and video clips). Personally, I thought I’d been very lazy by not tidying up my notes from the sessions and including them too (yet) but all of that will come later. Perhaps in digested form I’m typing so fast […]

SXSW day 3 – Laptop Tattoos and the Accordion Guy

Austin Laser Art were at the Screenburn arcade yesterday and today, offering free laser etching on iPods, Moleskine notebooks, laptops, and in fact pretty much anything you handed them. They offered a book full of designs, or you could email in your own EPS file. I found this lovely Transformers logo, which they quickly used […]

(Yes, the meta-ness of speaking at a conference about conferences is not lost on me). I was invited to do something on Web 2.0 and ‘where is technology headed’. After some thought, I’ve written up some notes […]

Flight of the Conchords – convergence at CES

Along with yesterday’s Macworld conference (MacBook Air… mmmm…) CES, the Consumer Electronics Show, is one of the highlights of the geek year. New devices are announced and launched; bigger televisions, smaller mobile phones, faster, better, now! The wonderful kiwi comic duo, Flight of the Conchords (who you’ll remember I’ve mentioned here before) played there this […]
