The problem with the mother

January 09, 2009

Link love: This post builds on the case study I contributed to the Eduserv workshop on Digital Identities at the British Library today. Everyone's case studies are lodged over at the Pattern Language Network site, along with Yishay's Slidedeck pattern language tutorial on writing a case study. It also moves forward some observations I made in my ...

are we getting more social?

September 11, 2008

Yesterday I learnt from yongfoook how blogs are out and microblogs in. I turn around, and everyone's got a friendfeed. Now Wired's  webmonkey tells us about "hidden" social featrues in Flickr's new UI. And I wonder, is it the web that's changing, or is it us? Is UI design finally catching up with what we want, or is it ...

Digital Identities & Digital Communities

April 26, 2008

Most of my week was taken up presenting, hosting, and having a huge deal of fun at the Emerge project three day online conference, Digital Identities and Digital Communities. I lead on the programming for the event,& recruited many of the speakers, so it wasn't altogether surprising that I really enjoyed myself. The quality of ...

Should I go pro?

January 21, 2008

This post was stimulated by several reasons. Lately, I have been very curious about Flickr, especially because of a friend of mine, Helen Keegan. Helen is a huge fan of it and her enthusiasm about photo sharing is just contagious. Besides that, I have been receiving some comments about the pictures I have published there, which just adds more ...

CC issue

September 23, 2007

Interesting blog I just came across at Harry Chen Thinks Aloud. Seems Virgin are using flickr pictures which were posted with the Creative Commons license but they are of someone whom Virgin did not get permission from. Seems this is illegal in US and Australia (where the campaign is running). Wonder what the situation would be here? Definitely worth ...

Seeking your views: Slideshare vs Flickr

August 18, 2007

Slideshare is a useful site with some community oriented features, but has no real community around it. Whereas Flickr has some similar features and some very active communities in it. Is this simply because there are some very keen photographers out there who like communicating and building skills, whereas Slideshare users simply use Slideshare as a public dissemination medium?I’d ...

Flickrvision

May 31, 2007

Picked this web app from a friend's facebook page and I love it - a fleeting glimpse of strangers' lives and interests - a wedding, holidays, landscapes, a baby - but somehow the sense of connection generated by this is far greater and more rapid than is usual with conventional views of Flickr.Perhaps we could learn something from ...
