Fliss, Louise, Rodney and two men carrying small trees

Two men carrying trees Pauanui December 2010

The second in a series of four Blurb books for publication by 1 July 2011. Getting there. I didn’t make this one; Fliss did. I did take the bulk of the photographs though. This sequence was amusing when I made it – it seems even more so now.

Feijoas and the mower man, kitchen arrangements and a quick trip to meet the ‘PD boys’. Work on Abbie’s new OC. The book is called May 2011 because it is being made in May 2011; the first Blurb book I have made although I have tried. The book is courtesy a collaborative marketing exercise by Blurb and Zenfolio. The photos were taken between May 2010 and May 2011. Not sure how many pages I’m allowed – forum hunting hasn’t helped. To the value of $35US or so? No, around $30US.

20 Things I learned About The Internet

This is a really good reference.

A fun guidebook from Google on things you’ve always wanted to know about browsers & the web (but were afraid to ask).

20 Things I learned About The Internet

A helpful place to start is near the Very Beginning: 1974. That was the year that a few smart computer researchers invented something called the Internet Protocol Suite, TCP/IP for short. TCP/IP created a set of rules that allowed computers to “talk” to each other and send information back and forth.

Finding stuff on the Internet camfind.co.nz & wwwmedia.co.nz

camfind.co.nz c/w wwwmedia.co.nz c/w google.co.nz

I’ve worked steadily for the past two years to build a relationship with Google, so the indexing of the Monavale Homestead article post posted this morning came back within 30 seconds. This is as much to do with the absolute uniqueness of the subject matter as it is in the way I have treated it. Out there we have yellow.co.nz struggling  for relevance – yes, I do use the white pagesNZ Post is up to something (I’m not sure quite what) and I do use this. camfind.co.nz is already cool – but this wwwmedia.co.nz thing is completely lost on me. Finding stuff on the Internet using Google (the default search engine by a county mile) is easy if said material is unique and correctly presented.
