All Links Lead to Facebook

July 16, 2014 Leave a comment

I follow a lot of interesting links on the interwebz each night. I am a prolific reader, I read prolifically. Is anyone read prolificly? But I digress…

A few nights back I stumbled onto Chris Harding‘s series,We the Robots . Hilarity ensued. That two word sentence is so cliched. Again, I digress…

"Whatchoo Lookin' At?"

Seems ‘We The Robots’ was a short period in his eclectic ‘toon time. Two years exactly, give or take a life time. A robot’s life can be long or short, depending on the country of birth. I like to digress.

So I checked out where Chris is now. Wasn’t difficult. Google is a search engine. I searched for him. Chris Harding. Animation. Here he is .

Then I went back to We The Robots. There is a link on his homepage to Chris’s / Chrises / Chrises’ / his Facebook page . hashtag head smack.

But the story doesn’t end there. (How many times have we heard THAT line? No, not the next one, the one prior to the one before this one!)

Seems Chris has an agent. Go read his awesome Contact page. Chris really his a funny guy. And his agent has a site filled with other a.ma.a.z.i.n.g artists .

Techtronics of Rex the RobotAnd his agent has links to sales teams, some live, some links dead. Nearly everyone of them are also on Facebook.

WHO ISN’T ON FACEBOOK?! Oh, yeah, my lovely coffee maker at Kikko’s on Pirie Street . Aha, free plug. I like my coffee, and I really like when it is the perfect breakfast. Much digression. And digestion. Coffee is good for that.

That’s it. More again. Another time. I make no promises I will post again tomorrow. I do that too often and don’t, so now I say I post irregularly – which means it is surprise to even me when I do. With surely more digression.

Behavioral Interviewing Is Not The Way To Go – Forbes

Read the article. It makes sense. Talk with me, not at me. Let’s chat on one side of the table, not opposite one another.

How to Walk without Leaving your Desk!

February 15, 2014 Leave a comment

Somehow I found myself watching this interesting youtube clip about the Facebook Server rooms . A few minutes into this docu-data-archive (see what I did there?!) is a guy on a treadmil at a desk … and I have never seen anything like that before!

So I had to do some googling about this subject. Turns out ‘treadmill desk‘ displays a LOT of great information about both DIY and buyable units where you can exercise on the job. Nice!

Here are the few images and links about this great idea that caught my attention. Watch out for the guy riding his bike in the office whilst sitting at his desk!

First off we have the pro’ version. It’s pricey, but as this becomes more common and mainstream the price will decrease to a reasonable housewife price.

Then we have a high quality AND pricey treadmill desk that has a product code that describes the kilometres you will walk each year whilst perusing your Amazon and Ebay purchases.

Google then found me previewing the blow-up ball on the treadmill behind the desk. Whilst the fat-guy who has taken over my waist-line loves this idea, the blood-pumping heart inside me is saying “Woooh, slow down sunshine.”

My heart was then saying, let’s take a break, sleep a bit, come back later when the legs don’t feel like falling off. Just reading this was making me exhausted! Yet I pushed myself forward, determined to finish this second post for 2014 on my journal. I didn’t call mysef the online entrepreneur for nothing!

So I found the deck-cycle. It might be called something else, but this name made better sense from a marketing point of view – it rolls off the tongue. Deskcycle. Deskycle. D’Skyle. Steal it, go with it, walk with it, get on with it.

Could this be the End of The Doctor?

December 26, 2013 2 comments

Sculpted Hands

Meh. I was not overly impressed.

I had an inkling just a few minutes into this episode of Dr Who, “The Time of the Doctor“, that I might be saying this later if not sooner:

Oh no, they have over-hyped a show that has none.

This Christmas special under-achieved so much that I have no doubt there will be a HUGE backlash from the Whovian camps. Moffatt may have just written the eulogy of the Doctor in this one episode. He, and I mean Moffat, might need to regenerate himself and his script-writers before too long

Well, there were a few bits that stood out in this intergalatic fanfare … [SEARCHING CYBERBANKS] … Oh, I remember now, these two bits of dialogue. A few well-written lines.

“It all just disappears, doesn’t it? Everything you are, gone in a moment. Like breath on mirror… Any moment now, he’s a comin’!”
“Whose coming?”
“The Doctor!”
“You. You are the Doctor.”
“Yep… and I always will be … But times change, and so must I.”

and

We all change. When you think about it – We are all different people, all through our lives, and that’s OK, that’s good, you gotta keep moving, so long as you remember all the people that you used to be!

Let’s hope the latest incarnation can put new life into the series. The last three actors made the Doctor a worldwide franchise, idol and star. The new guy needs to outshine all three combined. Meh. I doubt it will happen. But I am prepared to watch and find out.
