THEO PAPHITIS: Millionaire, Dragon, rubbish employer, hypocrite & Social Media dufus

Last week I read an article from the Daily Mail (a link I followed I don’t hesitate to add) from the inimitable Theo Paphitis entitled “Why ALL bosses should copy me and ban Facebook from the workplace”. I think it’s fair to say that it wound me up. Show More Summary

Technically white-noising out that negative Social Media buzz about you

An interesting piece of spam popped into my inbox over the weekend. It was particularly ineffective because there was no link to click through to (stupid is as stupid does), but still the subject caught my eye because it was something...Show More Summary


if anyone's in any doubt that we're once again living through a bubble being inflated as fast as the last dot com one then you don't have to look too far.

Is Foursquare the Mayor of Hype Bubble Central?

A little while back there was a bit of a heated debate in the ole twittosphere. You see foursquare, it would seem, is one of those things that’s a bit like marmite – and I’m not exactly in the “love it” camp. I personally find it annoying. Show More Summary

Lies, damned lies & Adobe surveys

This came up today in a little back and forth on Twitter & got me so agitated that I wanted to air it here too. The micro debate centred around the use of Flash (or at least the exclusive use of flash) in website builds. Now firstly let me say that I'm a Flash fan and for a long time have been in awe of the experience you can get through flash sites. Show More Summary
