Conversations in cyberspace

I love blogging.  There are those who believe that it can be a little one sided, but for me, I find it an infinitely better communication tool than say, a letters page in a magazine, or even email.  Case in point, last week I expressed disappointment at Bovis’ BREEAM targets. Andrew Kinsey (their senior environmental […]

Yet more RSS goodness – MBS

Some might say that I’m stringing out posts in order to comply with NaBloPoMo (they might be right), but here’s another rss feed for you. Modern Building Services is a monthly publication which you can receive free if in the UK.  It makes sense (as they are free anyway) for them to also publish an […]

Celebrity Wormery news

Dave Gorman (a very funny man) has a great post up about his new wormery here and the worms escaping: What were they thinking? Why didn’t they turn back? Where did they think they were heading? They should have stayed in the wormery for crying out loud! It was built for them. It’s a worm […]

Matt Robinson from Sustainable Building Solutions in Sheffield kindly got in touch recently with details of his new blog. Early days yet, but good to see another company in the industry embracing the digital medium (and another Yorkshire one* at that – leading the way…).

Post a day (sort of) for the next month…

I might just be able to pull this off. I have kind of cheated though. I’ve written most of the posts in advance and by the magic that is the internet, they will publish themselves. There’s a couple of drawbacks to this. Firstly, I don’t have much internet access at the minute, and to compound […]

NaBloPoMo

Those who have been floating round in cyberspace for the past few years will probably have heard of NaNoWriMo (National Novel Writing Month – the aim is to write every day in November and at the end have the semblance of your inner novel).  I’ve always kind of fancied that except I’ve always been either […]

Fame!

Isn’t it always the way? You leave a dry boring post about tedious housekeeping matters up for a week or so, and your blog gets a mention in a weekly national magazine. Now will we see a rash of new bloggers eager to join in the debate? I hope so. This little corner of the […]

There’s a few folk who don’t blog, but I wish they did.  And now one more does – Jonathon Porritt’s musings can be found here.  I also found Tony Jupiter of FOE via JP, blogging over at comment is free, the guardian’s collection of hosted blogs. Now if Bill McDonough and Bill Dunster would join […]
