Interesting to see brands moving away from Facebook's algorithms to a more open, less opaque approach - I'm really interested in Twitter's ability to offer interesting and relevant content on a per-subscription basis. Also, sometimes, the public and open nature of the conversation can be a real win.

Nice new Ecosystem page for the Eclipse Internet of Things community! is where you can learn about the technologies developed at Eclipse to make Internet of Things (IoT) development simpler. These technologies aim at establishing an open, end-to-end, IoT stack.

Happy to be a contributor to the latest edition of NFJS magazine - with an article about +MQTT and Java.
Screenshots from our mobile-first redesign of NFJS, the Magazine ( in EPUB3, MOBI and PDF formats. The magazine is produced from articles written in AsciiDoc format using only tools from the +Asciidoctor ecosystem. These tools are being integrated into an Asciidoctor sub-projected named "editions" for the purpose of producing publications such as this one.

These screenshots were taken on a Nexus 7 2012 Android tablet. The eBook formats of the magazine are responsive and scale to any device size.

The fonts used in the magazine are as follows:

M+ 1p - headings, callout numbers
Noto Serif - body copy
M+ 1mn - source code and inline literals
Font Awesome - admonition icons

Excellent video showing my colleague +Romain Huet discussing the Twitter Streaming and REST APIs, provide access to "the pulse of the planet" (and some Raspberry Pi and Nodecopter action, too!)

We really love the Albert, it is our local pub. The food is always really good, there's a reasonable range of ales on offer, and they are very "social" online with their Facebook and Twitter presences - lots of offers and events. Summer barbecues are excellent! We also enjoy the comedy and other events that they put on. Service is friendly and helpful. Big fans :-)
