Too long !

Wow, almost a year to the day since I posted here, it's been too long.

Over the past year I've mostly been using other services - twitter, Facebook, LinkedIn and internal work systems. However they still leave a gap, as they either have restrictions in terms of the size of content (twitter) or in terms of access and therefore visibility. So I plan to start blogging again and structure my use of systems along the following lines:

Facebook - Things to be shared just with friends

LinkedIn and company systems - Work related stuff

This blog - More general things that may be useful to others or others may have helpful comments on.

Twittter - quick short general references and thoughts, replicated here for those who don't follow me.

The only real whole that leaves me is with photos, so I think some investigation is required there. A lot I share with friends on Facebook but there are other groups of people I'd like to share pictures of events with but don't necessarily want to share all of my life with. So I think an additional service is required. I have a Mac and Mobile Me, so that's an option, I've also got a Flickr account, although I don't use it very often. Maybe the new Apple iCloud will be an option. Who know's, I'll blog what I find.

So more posts to come, hopefully before June 2012!
