Helped to write a post on our experience experimenting with Google Glass last month. I think it raises some interesting points about the future of wearables. #glassexplorers   #glassware   #googleglass

Flashed latest Cyanogenmod nightly on my Nexus 4. So far it's really nice.

When we had TV at uni I used to mute the ad breaks and start chats instead. Now I don't own a TV. YouTube 5 second ads I can just about manage. Would pay a license fee for none. Agree with Banksy. I didn't ask for that noise. At the very least we should be able to reshape it.

I have a new name.

I tried to trick Google+ into giving me my vanity URL without "a few" extra characters by changing my name to something shorter. I'd tried it before by removing one letter, but I just gave it a second try by removing three.

It turns out Google only lets you change your name three times in two years, making my new surname something I'll need to get familiar with. 

It's changed my name on my outgoing email too.

I'm going to have to get in touch with deed poll, or someone at +Google+.

I suspect actually changing my legal name will be easier.

What better way to test out the new G+ photo stuff than with puppies? Cats, maybe.

The death of Google Reader is another blow to the open web. We're in a world of walled gardens and silos now. No common language of sharing.

Remarkable, really. Did everyone miss the experience of the moment? I wonder how many of those photos/videos will ever be looked at again.
