Noise to Signal Cartoon Intrepid social media cartooniste extraordinaire Rob Cottingham (seriously, that toothpaste guy isn’t in it) attended the Courting Controversy: Dancing with the Devil panel at the Northern Voice blogging conference, and what you see above is the result.

What NOT to do on Facebook, part 2: the Boss

August 31, 2009

The commenters in the thread on BritishExPats seem to think the problem is that this hapless whiner added her boss on Facebook before venting about him. They are wrong. The problem is: she vented in public, using her real name. If you do this, whether on a Facebook page or in a restaurant, assume that, […]

R U Fucking Kidding Me? A new theme for a new age of romance

August 17, 2009

Of all the songs in all the world, I’d have to say that this song has the best odds of being posted to the most Facebook pages. Romance has truly entered a new era, one where pickups are done via text and dumpings by a change in one’s Facebook status (“what does he mean he’s […]

Oh, for god’s sake, Photobucket, that was a promotional image released by the studio and hosted in my Photobucket account for NINE YEARS. And you deleted it now? No wonder everyone uses Flickr now.

Well, almost live, as there was no wifi in the room. Here’s my report of the BBB seminar presented by Vaclav of PCIS, which announcement I posted here. How long has it been since I was in a room with a picture of the Queen? Not to mention a pic of Gordon Campbell with 80’s […]
