  1. Five ways to make offline working easier

    Posted on October 28th, 2008 by Neil Crosby. Filed under Uncategorized.

    Nowadays an “always on” existence is far less of a pipe dream than it was even a year ago. Usable wireless hotspots have popped up everywhere and many of us have data tariffs on our mobile phones. It’s no surprise then that many people simply expect to always have a network connection and become flummoxed […]

  2. Why (and how) am I changing my online identity?

    Posted on October 20th, 2008 by Neil Crosby. Filed under Uncategorized.

    Over the last month or so I’ve been slowly but surely beginning my migration of usernames from things like “thevoicewithin” and “workingwithme” to plain and simple “NeilCrosby”. The question quite a few people have been asking me is “Why?”. Some have called it an identity crisis, others have said that it’s a personal branding exercise, […]

  5. Had a ticket but didn’t come to BarCamp London 5? For shame…

    Posted on October 1st, 2008 by Neil Crosby. Filed under Uncategorized.

    This weekend was BarCamp London 5 (I know, this is the third post on the subject, but keep with me on this) at Ebay’s office in Richmond. It was a great weekend, with some very high quality talks. In fact, I don’t think I went to a single session that I didn’t thoroughly enjoy. As […]

  6. Ten Word Moo Card

    Posted on October 1st, 2008 by Neil Crosby. Filed under Uncategorized.

    One of the sessions I attended at BarCamp London 5 this weekend was Stefan Magdalinski’s talk about the Moo API. Ever since I made my first The Ten Word Review Moo Cards by hand I’ve been wanting to automate the process, but lack of time and incentive has always let me down. So, what changed? […]
