onwards and upwards

November 28th, 2008

This is my first post! I’m one day away from leaving paid employment for the first time in 10 years and embarking on a three month journey to New Zealand, Australia and the US – kipping in spare rooms and floors of friends, the odd hostel and probably the occasional hotel…just to use the trouser press, you understand!

I’m going to be very surprised if you’re actually reading this, it’s gonna be by accident really, isn’t it? I’ve only showed a few close friends, and I doubt any of them use RSS, Twitter or any other geek toys that seem to be taking over my life.

I hope I’ve got something to say after reading an encyclopedia of blogs over the past five years. We’ll see, well, I’ll see anyway…

The basic premise of this exercise is two-fold:

  1. A travelog using as much technology as possible, I’ll update the twitter widget via SMS and the photostream via flickr by sending photos from my 5mp phone via email directly to flickr…get thar geek on!
  2. This will be my “company” website when I start working upon my return to British shores in March 2009. Setting this up using Textpattern was the first step – now I can set up CMS/blog sites, potential employers! On top of that I’ve used a MySql DB – stop sleeping! – some PHP, the aforementioned twitter, flickr and also facebook add-ons and hope to add last.fm at least before I leave the country and let the site create iteself from afar…I hope Ron & Tits will let me use their Mac to blog from…

Enough tech talk, I’ll be updating now as soon as possible. In London next week – gigs every night, cheers (T)ed! In Bristol & France the following week, then the Mighty Midlands, Bristol again, Yeovil then Surrey before flying out on Dec 22nd to New Zealand for Xmas…whoop whoop!

I look forward to Xmas Day in flip-flops…and I’ll leave you with that thought…
