day 211…

Doing a spot of babysitting tonight at a friends house, so borrowing a bit of wifi to watch the Olympics.

Incredible how we can engage with big events nowadays – laptop and ipad mean watching live feed and keeping a track of ongoing events.  Twitter etc. give us direct and almost instantaneous access to those participants.  Facebook helps us to join our community of friends as they respond to what they’re watching.

Is this a good thing?  Do we consume events now rather than simply watch them?

Not sure…but I do love it!

day 109…

Confession time – I’m a bit of a gadget freak. I also love my Apple products.

Cases become important – keeping the nice shiny stuff shiny etc etc…

This here is my lovely new iPad sleeve – made out of lovely soft and supple leather with a corduroy lining. The leather is ethically traded…nice…
