Twitter wine? Been there, done that

Been there, done that!   Hugh MacLeod and I toasting the first bottle of Blue Monster vintage


Microsoft Wave launched

Microsoft Wave is a cool new site from our UK team that is something we’ve long been without – a cool site that isn’t trying to sell anything, simply showing the breadth of cool technology that Microsoft is involved in. It’s very much in the spirit of Blue Monster so I was delighted to see…


Blue Monster Cube Grenades

[the shelf above my “cube” at home sporting an original] Hugh is on a riff and roll at the moment with Cube Grenades – something his audience has been doing with his stuff for years but he’s only just noticed. Often the way. I’m lucky enough to have a number of Hugh originals both in…


Gapingvoid Galley Goes Live

My buddy Hugh MacLeod mentioned to me last week he had a new project he was about to reveal and today it’s live. Hugh has finally opened a gallery of his prints – – where you can now buy his work. I say finally as within a few months of meeting Hugh I was…


Of Blue Monsters and Tattoo’s

  A number of people including Todd Bishop, BoingBoing, CrunchGear, Dennis Howlett and CNBC have posts about Dan Woodman being laid off from Microsoft and for a while it was floating high on Techmeme. At the very least, Dan’s new blog just got some great juice. For those late to the story, Dan is the…


My Business Card Gets a Service Pack

  It’s been a while since I caught up with my buddy Hugh and under the watchful eye of my boss he pointed out that the business card I snagged from Hugh a while back needed an update. Desktop became devices and now it truly is the Software plus Services business card. So this is…

    As my pal Kris announced last week Blue Monster is coming to Paris next week bug stylee…we’ll be at LeWeb. Hugh MacLeod, Kris Hoet, myself and a few other BM fans. I hear that there will also be wine. Yeah….remember the wine? I’m really getting back in to the Blue Monster at the moment…


Microsoft’s Magic Pixie Dust

  A friend just pointed me to Rory’s blog entry from the PDC – it’s a pretty accurate and fun view of what 3 days in the land of Microsoft looks like and I think Rory enjoyed himself. This part made me smile in particular:   But then a Microsoft internal blogger showed me two…


‘Cross The Breeze

My pal Kris Hoet just posted this great presentation – full of beautiful images and great quotes. I wish I’d created it…but will just have to shamelessly steal from him for my next preso 🙂 As with all good presentations, the slides on their own are not very informative – they require the presenter to…


Two Smarts Guys Do Ten Questions

  A great conversation between two of my pals – in fact two of the smartest guys I know. If you haven’t read David’s book you should go get it (disclaimer – I was interviewed for the book Blue Monster gets several pages). If you want to know what happens in a post advertising, post…
