A portrait

At the LCA Penguin Dinner last week, Benjamin Humphrey of OMG! Ubuntu and Ohso fame snapped a great shot of me unawares and in thoughtful mood. He’s been good enough to license the image under Creative Commons, and he’s also very kindly agreed that I can modify it for my own use as well. So, with a little judicious use of Gimp I’ve added some overlays and tints and have something which I think works rather well as a background for sites like personal landing pages.

Corporate blogging and “being social”

Back in November I spoke at the Coventry and Warwickshire Social Media Cafe. The organisers have now posted a short write-up of the talk, along with a video (embedded below) of a short conversation we had afterwards that summarised my experience of IBM’s approach to social tools and blogging inside and outside the firewall.

Double vision – videos from SOMESSO

You wait three weeks for a video, and then two turn up at once. No wait… that was buses.

The video of my talk from SOMESSO London 2009 has been made available. Unfortunately I’m not able to embed that here on my site, so follow the link if you want to see it. It’s about 20 minutes long.

You can also watch an interview I gave towards the end of the day.

You’ll sleep better tonight 🙂

In the office

Share photos on twitter with Twitpic Taken by Aaron Kim in Hursley today, shared on Twitpic. Click through for the non-thumbnail version, since I apparently can’t display the full image from Twitpic here on my site.

Features of note – Martin Packer wearing his zSeries Wordle t-shirt… Age of Conversation 2 on the desk… me wearing my Dogear Nation t-shirt 🙂
