Ok, so I didn’t fix it. I just did something slightly OCD only for me. My friend saw what I’d done, loved it, and encouraged me to tell the story and the vision of what FNO could, some day, have. what is FNO? A few weeks ago was the much-anticipated Vogue’s Fashion Night Out. The […] continue reading »

how disruptive has mobile technology become?

On Tuesday morning, it was announced that Microsoft would be buying nokia’s devices and services. I never expected to be blogging about mobiles and my love of nokia on the week its death sentence was pronounced. But there you go. Serendipitous irony. […] continue reading »

background for your twitter using instagram photos
I won’t take the credit for this. I saw someone mentioning it. @themattelliott to be specific. The gist of it is that there is a little website which will take instagram photos (yours, someone else’s, from a tag, etc…) and generate a background image for you which you can stick onto twitter.
