Didiom - Cool Music, Nice Little Idea, Can It Get Traction?

I get a fair few companies pointed out to me either in person, via SS, or sometimes over direct IM (If you’re looking to show me something my contact details are here). And when those projects are pointed out by close friends I tend to giv e them more than a casual glance. So when […]

Best Buy To Use Mix, an Internal Twitter-like Service

Sometimes you really can’t see the forest from the trees, and it takes someone like Laura ‘Pistachio’ Fitton to point out the changes in the real world that make an actual difference, as opposed to driving extra traffic to a silicon valley start-up.

In all the web remixing, hacking culture, and general tinkering we do, I just love seeing posts like this one from Tom Morris…

Something little cheeky for Friday afternoon methinks.
First of all, in all seriousness, congratulations to Michael Arrington for being in The Time 100 most Influential People list, admittedly as number 100 out of 100 (but do see here). Irrespective of your views of the TechCrunch empire, the fact that the web is seen as a […]

Is Muxtape a Sting Operation Against the RIAA?
