This Olympics fever is finally hitting me - I went to see the Olympic Torch in Clapham Common today.
It was such a lovely feeling! Everyone was getting excited - they got me buzzing! Looking forward to tomorrow now! :)
This is my first 25th birthday present - and this is as cool as it gets!
It all started with a little nagging, to have a proper pinterest account, with my very good friend Matthew. And we were having one of our long, what I call, “whatsapp chat” - since I’m in London and he’s in Malta - about his positive pinterest activity progress.
I noticed his fullspot pin and remarked how cool they are, because I’ve seen them at Selfridges and one of my friends over here got one for Christmas. And personally I was thinking of getting one for my birthday - specifically, white strap and a gold face.
He then said “well - this is what I’m getting you for your birthday - you might as well pick your colour!”
Isn’t he great? - Indeed.

A new word I’ve bumped into today. Elements of digital design that are based on old-fashioned, analogue, physical objects: skeuomorphs.
I love watches. I love post it’s. And I write on my hand to remember stuff, maybe with these watches I’ll stop!
It all started from a hobby.
Arrivals is a simple list of where your foursquare friends currently are. It is intended to be displayed on a spare second screen such as a tablet or phone without intrusively drawing attention.
Arrivals is based on a concept by Toby Barnes. Where’s Dad is a small glanceable display built for Toby’s son for use on a spare old iPhone. Whilst Toby is travelling his son asks him during phone calls where he currently is. This display constantly shows his current location, city and country based on his foursquare checkins. A simple piece of situated software with an user base of one person. See Toby’s blog for more details of his thinking behind it.
