Chris Keene is to blame for its miserable existence. He, and for that matter, I live in Brighton, East Sussex.
I’ve written some words, which you may wish to a call articles, or posts, or musings or simply lots of characters in a row.
I’ve written about the London Riots, the deficit, how twitter spreads news and reacts to censorship. I noted how I setup VuFind (an Open Source library catalogue) in 8 minutes on Amazon EC2, three blog posts about mobile phones, wireless music and hifi, recording broadband speeds, frustrations with iTunes, BBC Three, writing JISC bids, Nick Clegg, Russell Brand & Jonathan Ross, some views on politics and music by Katie Price and Peter Andre.
When I first moved to Brighton they started work on a large piece of land near the main station. I created a site to document the changing landscape in the Brighton New England Quarter. And here I learnt my first lesson in digital preservation, as fotopic, the site I used for the photo collections, carefully grouped together and described, is no longer available.
I’ve created a site a call ircount, which counts the number of records in University Institutional Repositories based on the figures provided by ROAR. It is currently a little broken, but feel free to read some background on it.
I created the shambrarian.org website – for those of us who work with technology in libraries (and aren’t real librarians). I also run my own link shortener xd5.be – which is of no interest to anyone except me.
