All about the productivity …

Just a quick one … I’ve got stuff to do. But I’m all about the productivity at the moment and wanted to share this great anecdote from Jerry Seinfeld (via lifehacker). Software developer Brad Isaac got some great advice from Jerry Seinfeld:  … He told me to get a big wall calendar that has a whole […]

Notes from a brief business trip

This past week I was away for 2 days on a business trip … the kind where you leave at 4am on a Thursday, and arrive back at about midnight on the Friday. Short, intensive, rewarding and filled with travel.  I probably had about 10 hours when I was travelling in one form or another […]

Around the web – April 2013

In which there’s a couple of good free resources: guide to google analytics, and a beginners guide to sales, I switch email client (again), and apologise for anything I’ve ever said when I was hungry.

The Cheese Hub – site launch

Cheese and websites … two of my favourite things, and brought together so wonderfully with this deceptively simple little ecommerce project: The Cheese Hub.   They’re business based in Leitrim that have some lovely looking hampers and a really interesting business in cheese maturation for local producers. Shelves and shelves of maturing cheese line their […]

A new CMS on the block: Blocks (see what I did there?)

There’s a new CMS about to be released that could genuinely offer something new: Blocks.  The guy behind it has worked extensively with Expression Engine (beloved of developers everywhere) and definitely has the pedigree to pull off something special.  The question is: has he? For the past couple of years WordPress has been my ‘go […]
