Don’t be a laptop loser!

October 30, 2007

I am an UCLIC’er – if there is such a thing -, yes we all love to whinge about everything that is wrong with products, it is a habit that seems to stick, but every so often something just hits a nerve.  Rachel Benedyk, UCLIC’s ergonomics lecturer finally snapped after seeing several years worth of students slacking around with laptops and   actually did a study about how much they suck (WARNING -this is a 500k PDF, obviously user experience is not Rachels strong point!) – good for her though – hmm but I remember earlier lazing against the radiator with my big clunky via on my knees whilst watching tv – i don’t see that changing very soon.   The poster is good too.


New article published

October 11, 2007

A while ago I post a link to a draft article about backups for small business.  Well it’s now published at (what do you mean ‘it’s not businessweek you know’!?).  Actually it was the first website that I came across that was looking for submissions, and it looks like quite an eclectic selection of articles they publish over there!  Hope you enjoy the article.

Finished the Berlin marathon

October 7, 2007

Ok, I was not a record breaker but that was not the aim.  My aim was to finish.  Paris is next in April, V and I are signed up already!  Here are some photos:
