Just been listening to G’Day World and found the Aussie Slang section one of the best things I have heard in a while. Being an aussie who has worked in Canada & the USA trying to explain some of our slang and terminology, eg bugger, bastard, cobber etc, it is great to hear Cameron andContinue reading “Donkey’s Doodle”
I have been following the links reading the posts and feel very humbled and kind of like “a fish out of water” being involved in the BlogosphereRadio special report. To have been involved in something with so many important people within blogosphere is just amazing.
With all of the talk about what seems external corporate blogging I thought I might reflect on internal corporate blogging. I guess kind of like Jeremy Wright did a couple of days ago of business blogging overall. It seems that most of the commentary to date (that I have seen at least) seems to haveContinue reading “Internal blogs”
Ok maybe I am a bit late but the auction is over and Jeremy has sold his services for $3350, not bad at all. Congratulations! The purchaser was Inkspress, good luck to them! If Jeremy does only 5 posts over the 13 week period it will cost them about $50/post, now hopefully they take manyContinue reading “Blog Auction over”
Tama, from Ponderance has highlighted some very interesting points which I missed in my first test drive of MSN Spaces. I guess it is really designed as a consumer tool, which is not a bad thing.
InfoWorld has an interesting piece which just goes to show the world is changing. Such studies will be useful for organisations looking to rollout collaborative and groupware tools. For example, what are the real implications of instant messaging or VOIP? How should the change program be managed, what should it cover and how can weContinue reading “Managers misuse techonlogy”
Ok, I know the title probably got you attention, but it does happen. How do I know this? Well BP in the UK have recently sent a memo to all managers requesting people to stop having sex in the office. How did they know? Well it was caught on the CCTV cameras by the securityContinue reading “Do you have sex in the office?”
For many this might be old news, but Microsoft has launched a blogging service called MSN Spaces. I just created a replica of my blogger account over there to have a look (I will probably delete it in a few days so as not to confuse things). They have created very interesting tool integrating blogs,Continue reading “Microsoft to offer blogging service”
I wrote earlier this week about Heather’s post on .jobs. There have been a couple of comments about searchability etc on jobs and resumes. I find it interesting that when I search on Google, Yahoo or MSN search I cannot find 90% of jobs, even ones from corporate sites! Let’s take this job @ Microsoft.Continue reading “Searching for jobs and resumes”
I have been reading some of the notes from BlogTalk 2.0 and came across some notes on Ben & Mena Trott’s keynote. (You know Ben & Mena right? Six Apart, Moveable Type, and TypePad). Anyway with all the talk today about it being “The Year of the Blog“. I came across an interesting comment inContinue reading “Are blogs ubiquitous?”
