@tref on Twitter…Two Years, Ten Weeks, Two Days and Counting

I joined twitter 802 days ago on 17th May 2008. Since then as @tref on Twitter I have sent 2,623 tweets, an average of just over three a day. Not too bad for anyone who thinks I spend too long on the site. In June, according to twitter COO Dick Costolo twitter had 190 million users, […]

Zi8 is a stunner and will drive internet bandwidth usage

Following on from the Jeff Pulver #140 Conference in London yesterday I’ve been trying out a new toy. This is the Zi8 HD digital video camera by Kodak and I have to tell you it is a stunner. Presented to me yesterday by Jeffrey Hayzlett, CMO of Kodak the HD video quality is outstanding and […]

#140conf London – a melting pot for realtime communications

Today I’m with Jeff Pulver at his #140 conference at the O2 Indigo. Jeff originally (not that long ago actually so to use the word originally seems a little strange) started the #140conferences in February as a vehicle to capitalise on the Twitter revolution. Very quickly the theme of the conference has moved on to […]

#G20 summit security kept crowds away

The G20 summit has been all the news this week.  I had planned to go to a Networking Brainstorming Breakfast co hosted by my friend @JeffPulver,  @PaulWalsh and Lauren Feldman. I was concerned that the level of security surrounding  the G20 would be prohibitive for travelling to London but I went anyway and to my […]

140 Characters Conference – pulver on twitter

I spent some of this morning with our marketing team discussing our twitter marketing strategy.  This is a very new field and it is interesting to see how people go about getting exposure on the site. For example I get people I’ve never heard of signing up as followers.  This prompts me to take a […]

Interview with Jeff Pulver for “Hardcopy”, newsletter of ISPA

Its aim is, broadly put, is to promote universal use of broadband and to stimulate the digital knowledge economy thus keeping the country competitive in the 21st century.

You can follow it at the SocComm web address http://www.soccomm.com/twitbuzz.html. When I looked it was during the government and regulation session and the tweets all […]

Defining Moment In Social Networking

I’ve been conversing on Facebook with Jeff Pulver and am somewhat gutted that lack of time keeps me from attending his SocComm conference in New York this coming Tuesday, 10th February. Jeff has a lot of experience in running such events and is confident that this one “will represent a defining moment” in Social Networking. His line […]

Jeff Pulver Social Networking Breakfast & The Death Of Email

I have just been to one of Jeff Pulver’s breakfasts and was completely bowled over with how effective his networking techniques are.  Jeff, as he told us in his speech, is naturally a very shy person. It’s taken me ten years to realise this. In order to overcome his shyness he has developed a technique […]

Is The UK An Innovation Backwater?

I’m sure this is a subject that has raised its head on many occasion over the past decade or two. It struck me this morning that all the futuristic development work that I am looking at is based on technologies and services that have originated outside the UK. In particular Facebook, Twitter, YouTube, MySpace, Digg […]
