Kindle It

Monday, May 23rd, 2011

K has been working hard to produce a great new application for all those Kindle lovers out there. Kindle It allows you to send articles to your Kindle straight from the web. I’m finding it really useful and possibly for the first time ever I’m actually reading a lot of articles from the web. Coupled […]

Fat free cart

Wednesday, March 16th, 2011

I am very excited about FatFreeCart. I’ve just used it to create some add to cart buttons on a site I run called Sheffield Massage. The code generater on FatFreeCart is easy to use and does most of the hard work for you. You can trim the markup to make your buttons look neater (thanks […]

Launchy it up

Saturday, July 3rd, 2010

My beautiful new Sony laptop arrived on Monday morning. It’s a 14″ e series with a 500GB hard drive, 4GB of RAM and an i5 processor. It took me a good few minutes to depackage it because I was so worried I was going to break it – it’s pretty terrifying being left alone with […]

Things to do in Helsinki

Sunday, April 5th, 2009

I got up this morning to try that most Finish of things – a sauna. The hotel has one for boys and one for girls and it’s not just a sauna – it’s a whole complex complete with room to put your clothes, a relaxation room, shower room and sauna. I had the whole thing […]

First time in Helsinki

Saturday, April 4th, 2009

I flew to Helsinki from the Landvetter Airport yesterday after work on one of Blue 1’s uncrowded planes. It was a real pleasure after flying on Ryanair. The staff were really friendly and even gave me a map of the city, as well as directions to my hotel and information on which bus to take […]

Pixelache, Five Filters and The Bay

Tuesday, March 31st, 2009

I’m off to Helsinki this weekend to go to Pixelache where K is going to be in the spotlight for a couple of minutes talking about his Five Filters project. Apparently there is snow on the ground there – so it will be like travelling back in time to the winter. I’ve got four books […]

Media Lab Prado

Sunday, February 1st, 2009

Keyvan is still at Medialab Prado and although he hasn’t taken any pictures himself you can see some here. He now has his very own team of collaborators and they are well on their way to make the Five Filters a reality. It totally looks like a teccie workaholic’s paradise. In the gaps between work […]

K is off to Madrid next week to the MediaLab-Prado Grange Science Interactivos workshop. He is going to be making a project named after and based on The Five Filters from the Propaganda Model as put forward in the book by Edward S. Herman and Noam Chomsky called Manufacturing Consent: The Political Economy of the […]

Slimbox, Simple+ and Zenphoto

Sunday, January 4th, 2009

Hip hip hooray – my photo gallery looks better today. As you know I use Zenphoto to display all my lovely pictures and today disheartened by the fact that although the theme I use with it is great to look at, sadly there was no functioning JavaScript (such as Lightbox) to make the photos look […]
