Twitter is fast becoming one of the most effective ways to communicate over the internet, but how do your tweets measure up? How influential are you and who’s retweeting you?…over the past couple of days i’ve been measuring metrics, finding our which are most useful tools… Continue reading →
We have some great bloggers right here in the North East. I’ve been following many of the more technical blogs for a while, and featured links to many of the better ones right here in links section.
More recently i’ve even started to aggregate the rss feeds within google reader, so i was really interested to read yesterday that Ross Cooney was planning to aggregate some of these blogs and had created a discussion thread on the SuperMonday google group for people to add details of the blogs.
Not only have i discovered some great new blogs and added links to the list, but i’ve also updated my reader feeds and bundled them into a single feed that i’ve added to this page.
So now as well as my views on the North East IT scene, you can also see what the rest of the North Easts bloggers are saying, all in one place. Continue reading →
I think we all know by now, what a great job the Codeworks team do with the Thinking Digital Conference, bringing some of the greatest speakers in the field of technology to Newcasle|Gateshead once a year . The conference continues to grow as one of the leading conference of its kind and getting an out standing reputation both locally and globally. Unfortunately not everyone can manage to get to the conference, either because they simply can’t aford it, or because of other commitments, but Codeworks believe that this content is just too good to miss, so they have made the talks freely available online, not quite the same as attending in person, but unmissable all the same… Continue reading →
Having recently read an article in the Telegraph on ‘how Grim things are in the North’, I had thought i’d have to pack my bags and head of to London, if i wanted to do any sort of social networking. Turns out they were wrong…there are a whole host of events in June, right on our very doorstep. Who’s have guessed it, this far North?
Junes Events include: Pecha ucha, Game Horizon, Where do you think your going, ThurdsdayFizz, Supermondays and Shift Happens 2.0 Continue reading →
There seems to be an ever-growing number of IT, technology, internet and digital groups, forums and networks, setting up in the North East. The latest such group is ‘Digital Marketing – Debates’ hosted by Newcastle University Business School.
Wednesday morning saw the first meeting of this new group, and despite the early start in seemed to be very well received, with a promising turnout, made up of both familiar faces and people I’d not come across at these things before. Kay Jones introduced an excellent line up of speakers on subjects including email, search optimization, online recruitment and the digital sector.If i were to criticize anything it would be time keeping with an hours over run there was very little time left for networking.

This year’s Thinking Digital Conference took place at at the Sage Gateshead, from the 13th to 15th of May. In my opinion this year’s event may have been the best yet, Herb Kim and the Codeworks team certainly know how to put on a show! Don’t get me wrong, the content of last year’s show was just fantastic, but this year it just seemed to come together a just that little more smoothly… Continue reading →
I started blogging about 2 years ago using the free blogger and wordpress services, those blogs are coming along nicely now, but i feel the time is right to start up a new blog focussing on the local IT scene here in the North East. I have decided that it would be nice to install a copy of word press on my server and host this one myself, i hope you enjoy it and find it useful… Continue reading →
