Trip Around the World from your Sofa

Take an inspiring and inspired trip around the world from the comfort of your own lounge with this extremely well stitched together and edited film. In their words: 3 guys, 44 days, 11 countries, 18 flights, 38 thousand miles, an exploding volcano, 2 cameras and almost a terabyte of footage… all to turn 3 ambitious […]

Why print in 2D when you can print in 3D!

I’ve recently started ‘using’ a macbook pro. I say ‘using’ in inverted commas, because I would not call it that at all. For one thing, I simply cannot cure myself of the need to have my left index finger resting on the trackpad (is that what its called?) while I move the mouse around with […]

Capturing your Mood

There are lots of ways to organise the information on the web. Google “organise” the world’s information based on revealed and stated (either through search or consumption of content)  preference, interest or need.

Happy Birthday to my Blog!

So today my blog turned 1 week old! To mark the occasion, I have decided to use a brilliant little app called wordle, to explore exactly what it is I have been blogging about. Not just some made up word cloud like the one on the right of screen, but the word’s I have actually […]
