Life In The Shadows

Longplayer Live at The Roundhouse

Longplayer Live is an incredible endeavor. I first blogged about it here. A single composition playing for 1000 years. It started in 1999 and on the 12th of September I was invited by Artangel to blog about it live. It was a great day. It was a long day. 1000 minutes of 1000 years. You […]

Longplayer Live

On the back of a bus in 1995 a guy called Jem Finer had an idea. Nearly five years later in 1999, on the verge of the third millennium that idea came to life as a thousand year long musical composition was set into motion. Longplayer is a piece of music that’s been playing since […]

Video For The Web

Advertising revenue is down, newspapers are struggling and as the economy takes a downturn production costs are up, at the same time online readership and revenue continue to rise. So what’s the answer? Go where the eyes are. Whether you are writing, taking pictures, shooting video or recording audio you can build communities with your […]

My AudioBoo Podcast

Well I never. In only three days AudioBoo has metamorphosed before my eyes into a simple, intuitive podcasting solution. It’s been around for longer than that (read my blog for more info) but I just took a look at my AudioBoo iTunes Feed and i have done what appears to be 30 mini podcasts in […]


AudioBoo has me excited. It fills a gap, it’s a missing link, and while we wait for a good quality audio/video (maybe VideoBoo) on an non-jailbroken iPhone.. This is going to keep me more than occupied. Audioboo is an audio blogging platform in the shape of an iPhone app that was in private beta in […]

Thirst For Rioja

I’m in Spain! In Rioja to be precise.. We landed here last night for a quick in-out social media commando mission to visit the Dinastia Vivanco winery and it’s wine culture museum. I have never really explored this region and so far i am mightily impressed. I am here with Rob McIntosh (@thirstforwine) and he […]


On the 25th of September 2008 myself and Matt (@Barnstormed) found ourselves at the first ever Twestival at the Doon Bar, Trafalger Square London. Here is one of the videos we shot that night. On the 12th of February 2009 Twestival really grows up, as cities all around the world will be hosting their own […]

Polaroid PoGo Portable Bluetooth Printer

Polaroid Kindly sent me one of their PoGo Zink (Zero Ink) bluetooth portable printers to have a play with and over this last week i have done just that. It’s not that bad, pretty good fun in fact and I can see lots of uses other than the ones they advertise.. but be warned some […]

Ourmaninside says: Find Me

I have been getting back into Geocaching recently. It all happened when I installed a couple of new gps based apps on my iPhone and one of them allowed me to check for geocaches in my area. There are loads! So now when on a dog walk I occasionally turn on my gps just to […]
