Excellent. Nearly one million broadband users in the UK. This seems to be a good thing – it’s a sign perhaps that the Internet is not nearly as crap, pointless and value-free as many might’ve been led to believe. Hopefully given the surge in demand for broadband investment in online companies will start to pick up again.
It did strike me as a bit odd that 21st Century technology involved a connection speed not even at 56K (UK regs allow 52 I think…) – it still amazes me how long it’s taking for BT to get their act together (and that goes for Oftel too!)
Something should really be made of Wifi and MANs (Mtropolitan Area Networks) – they appear to work well in the States and seem a perfectly viable alternative around here. Just still a snag with rural areas though, although Cardiff I think are working on something (I’ll try and dig up the url).
This is quite good – MTV are planning to make a movie about the rise and fall of Napster, so say the Beeb.
Hopefully next week Me and Chris will make a comeback to Surge radio next week. If I ask the scheduler Kat nicely I might be able to get two two hour slots – depends how busy they are though. At least one would be nice.
We’ve also got the lovely Em on the show (Em’s on the left of that photo), who’s already provided us enthusiastically with lists of songs to play for the first week. The Liberty X selection is foregiveable – this time.
I’ll do a website at some point. Prolly.
Oh yeah? What’s the plural of Crayola? Crayolas or Crayoli?
I never know how to start new websites. Err. Hi? This is my new blog (I’ve had others), which will hopefully be an interesting read to the travelling web surfers, as well as an eclectic collection of useful, useless and great web links!
The style is slightly different to most blogs. I only post the latest day’s blog on the front page. If you want to see older posts you can either move back through the little navigation tabs up by the date, or go through the archives.
More blurb soon… I promise.
Sometimes I worry that I spend too much time on the Internet. But it’s not hard to see the attraction. The Internet is huge. There’s all sorts of things out there, from the surreal, to the funny, to the serious.
