Cleaning my screen

Not a huge fan of this screen cleaner.

Left the screen a bit of a mess. Cute though!


The future of laptop designs?

Name: Mandy
How often do you use a computer? Five times a week.
What do you like to do when you’re using a computer? Play games and write stories and poems.

What will computers look like in the future? Well you see, if we had whole days to work on it, and bigger paper, I think we could make it way more detailed.

[ After being told this interview would be published on the internet ] “I’m going to be popular! I should make a blog button, right now.”
Mandy's laptop design (from The Laptop Club, all rights reserved) is cool. I especially love the HP trivia button. I love the fact she wants to blog about her interview. I also love the fact that Mandy is only 8.

From this article comes the story of the laptops designed by kids aged between 7 and 9.
Even with relatively little exposure to computers, these children have absorbed ideas about shopping online, interacting socially with virtual pets and real friends, and even media convergence with their favorite movies and songs loaded on the laptops.

Just back from Spain

After a hiatus abroad where I took some time away from the "interweb" to work on the "internet", I'm back in Dublin.

I'm looking forward to educating myself and exploring the web again.
