It’s not because I’m addicted to Tumblrs, but the amount of knitting I’m doing has increased so much, that I’ve decided to set-up a new Tumblr. Welcome to:

Geeky Knitting Experiments.

I’m currently focused on making a Tri-Force cushion cover, the image in this post is its back and I recently started work on the intarsia pattern that will form the Tri-Force itself. So yeah, if you like geeky things and knitting (or even crochet, ’cause I’m posting some of that too) please do follow it.

Normal (what that is) posts will resume on here next week. Have a nice weekend.

favourite podcasts

This is just a quick post to say:

There’s going to be a meetup for podcasters (or people who want to start podcasting) based in Cornwall on 16 September, from 7pm, in William IV, Truro. You can sign-up for the meeting on here.

All levels of experience are welcome and this meeting will be suitable for those interested in podcasting for fun or for their business. You can also sign-up for this first meetup via Facebook here. I’ll be in attendance along with my fellow Nerds Assemble host Paul Blewitt.

I want to say thanks to UK Podcasters for setting up the UK Podcasters group on Meetup.

See you there!

Truro UK Podcasters community first meetup coming soon!

Mmm, stat-tastic: three things you can do with Twitter analytics


This week, Twitter made its Twitter analytics platform available to all Twitter accounts. Previously it had only been available to business users (as in those paying for ads) and verified accounts. I’ve already seen people moan about how it’s going to mean a lot to people self-obsessed with themselves on Twitter being more self-obsessed. I think the arrival of analytics for all on the platform is great news for small publishers, small games developers, bloggers, small comics creators and so on who previously wouldn’t have paid for access to ads anyway, because: what budget?
