Web Sequence Diagrams

Have been following up a tweet from fooflington… yes it does seem rather cool. With <I’m no expert> applied, I’ve been playing too… Here’s the text that generated it: user->form: provides feedback activate form form->form: validate form–>user: request amends alt if ‘content’ selected form->dept: email dept note right of dept left with dept to sort…

Mittuniversitetet

Just back from a quick trip to Mid Sweden University (or Mittuniversitetet). We were at the Östersund campus which is a little further north than the two other campuses, Härnösand and Sundsvall. Östersund is described as ‘the number one winter city’ and it was certainly picturesque – covered in snow and fairly chilly outside. Yesterday…

The internet – costing or saving the planet?

This article…  Schwarzenegger’s ebook plans are not a greener option California’s plans to drop traditional textbooks in favour of online material will no doubt spare a few trees – but Arnie should be choosing the greenest option by rolling out dedicated e-reader devices at the same time, says Duncan Graham-Rowe via Schwarzenegger’s ebook plans are…

The Groundswell – figures for UK 2008

Just for the record really, but am reading The Groundswell by Charlene Li and Josh Bernoff from Forrester. They accompany the book with a website which includes a profile tool. For this to make sense you need to understand their “Social Technographics®” classifications which describe: Inactives, Spectators, Joiners, Collectors, Critics, and Creators. Their profile tool includes data…

CMS kit = Ikea flat pack

I liked a post on Robert O’Toole’s blog: The Ikea effect – why we should build a flat–pack V[R]LE He’s talking about a V[R]LE which I’m assuming is much like a VLE. But I thought the aspects on how people like to build their own things, especially when it’s made easy, related well to our CMS project. …
