Podcast: moving into fifth

This is the latest edition of the Natteron podcast I record with Helen Reynolds. In this edition we were joined by Rose Rees Jones to talk about open data, anthropology, the Missing Maps project, the Big Pathwatch, Wales, Cornwall, and data.parliament.uk amongst other subjects.

Another podcast

This week Helen and I were joined by Esko Reinikainen from The Satori Lab. We talked about digital services in government, how the blockchain will (may) disrupt unexpected things, whether Twitter is good or bad and (inevitably) drones.

Podcast the third

(gave battle in vain) Helen Reynolds and I find things to say about Skype, Uber, the independent review of terorrism legislation and many other topics.

Podcast: second album syndrome

Against all expectation Helen Reynolds and I have managed to produce a second podcast. The sound quality isn’t perfect as we were wrestling with flaky hotel internet.

My very first podcast

Along with the frighteningly talented Helen Reynolds I have recorded a podcast. This one was a bit of an experiment but we like to kid ourselves that it may amuse and divert some of you. We’d be very interested in any feedback you might have. Be kind though… [soundcloud url=”https://api.soundcloud.com/tracks/208415164″ params=”auto_play=false&hide_related=false&show_comments=true&show_user=true&show_reposts=false&visual=true” width=”100%” height=”450″ iframe=”true” /]

Crouton in a tab makes Chromebooks unbeatably awesome

Geeks tend to pay attention when they see my laptop. It’s cool and sleek and quite industrial. It’s clearly not a Mac, it’s certainly not a Dell or Lenovo, what is it? And usually a look of disappointment or confusion crosses their face when they discover it’s a Chromebook Pixel. Why, they ask, would anyone, […]

Some links for emergency planners on drones

Why drones? When I first went freelance in 2008 I decided to specialise in the emerging field of social media for emergency management. This was, on reflection, a terrible idea because I was attempting to sell people a solution to a problem they didn’t agree they had (for more on terrible business decisions see my […]

Health and social care, IT and informatics

Yesterday SOCITM (people who know about IT in local government) and ADASSĀ (people who know about social care) held a workshop in Birmingham. I rocked up. There was an interesting mix. I think I was probably the only digital rather than big IT person. Essentially the programme was talk/chat all the way through. It was, perhaps […]
