I finally caved in and signed up to Twitter. There are a number of factors at play here. Andy Piper and I have been talking about Twitter for weeks now, and he folded earlier today too. James Governor was using it last night, and and Jeff Barr was not only part of that discussion (and […]
As always, the venue of choice for a Wine 2.0 meetup is Bedales in Spitalfields Market. It was great to spend an evening with James Governor, Dennis Howlett, Hugh MacLeod, Kyb, Andy Piper, Richard Brown and Alan Wood. I took some notes, and managed to break a (very nice) wine glass. Conversation topics included: “Social […]
I had a long weekend. Friday and Monday off. Lovely. It would have been even better if I’d been disciplined enough not to connect to work to check emails, but I felt I should probably look for any urgent ones as I’m out of the office most of the week. In fact, I just typed […]
Rachel is out tonight, and in the process of making myself fishfinger sandwiches I find myself asking how many fishfingers is just right. I am sure this is a question Darren has an answer to, since he knows the right number of Weetabix and many other things. I pour some out and take a look. […]

A story in other people’s Flickr photos… Can you guess what it is yet? Mouseover for clues. You got it.
Hmm. Getting a $115 fine for parking in front of a hydrant means I didn’t get free parking for a day in Manhattan on Saturday after all. No wonder there was a space there. Thanks to Kevin Steel for sharing a lovely Creative Commons licensed Manhattan hydrant photo on Flickr. I was so annoyed that […]
Thanks to Rob’s new(ish) blog I recently learned that my name in Arabic would be transliterated as روو ريينولدس Great stuff Rob.
I recently signed up to the Plazes location tracking service, and since I’m traveling between New York, Danbury, Somers, and Southbury all week, it’s been interesting trying it out. I understand the Dodgeball service (recently acquired by Google) is even more popular here in NY, but it’s currently giving me a 502 Server Error, so […]
My manager Michael is a certified rock balancer. This is a photo he took of some rocks he balanced. I had my first taste of the art of rock balancing at Michael’s house (after a very fine dinner) last night, and I think I might already be hooked. It is just easy enough to get […]
