I Have Found A Huge Gold Mine. My Old Blog Posts.

I have found a forgotten treasure trove of blog post ideas. Sometimes the obvious is just too obvious to notice. Let me explain. A couple of months ago I moved (this) my very old blog to a new home. Well, to a new domain name that seemed like a good idea at the time. It gave me the chance to update lots of boring technical stuff like https and a new theme and everything you are probably not interested in at all. But I did it anyway. That I have moved my blog at least four times in the last ten years should have made me more practised, but as with all

A Bad Apple After Steve Jobs

It was a sad day for me, as it was for millions I suppose when Steve Jobs passed away. However, that was some years ago now, and I think I am well over my grieving. It may be connected, but I think I am also over wantonly donating my credit card limit to Apple too.

How Sociable Will I Be When I Die?

How Sociable Will I Be When I Die?

What happens to your online life when you drop off the perch? With so much interlinking, auto-sharing, auto-posting and re-tweeting I’m really wondering if I might just live on (socially speaking) for a few years without anyone noticing that I am actually quite dead. Perhaps I can plan for this eventuality by setting up some horribly clever automation that will have me bothering people from the grave and having a damn good chuckle at the joke from six-feet under.
