Nutcase Scotsman in tech conference podcast blowout

Posted by Chris Green on Thursday February 23 @ 10:04 pm

My friend and colleague Ewan Spence, he of the iPod Shuffle Shuffle incident, is about to embark on a conference schedule that is quite frankly – nuts!

Similar to the kind of back-to-back conference schedule I used to do during the dot-com era, Ewan will be covering and podcasting from the following:

If all goes to plan, I’ll be meeting up with Ewan at Mix06, so don’t be surprised if we end up appearing on each other’s podcasts.

But in the meantime, get yourself over to and shove the RSS feed into iTunes so you can get all the conference coverage when it starts flowing.

If you are attending any of these events and want to be part of the show from any of these conferences? Then drop Ewan a mail at, and if you are at Mix06 in fabulous Las Vegas, you can drop me a line at and I will try and hook up with you for a chat for the Computing Podcast.

How can Google recapture its ‘cool’?

I recently participated in an article for PR Week about Google and its rather strange attitude and approach to PR, marketing and press relations. Along with my views being quoted, the article also contains a story I recounted about the fun we had trying to photograph Google’s UK headquarters.

Computing Podcast – Number 6

Posted by Chris Green on Thursday February 23 @ 4:11 pm

My latest Computing Podcast is online over at In this episode I report from the ground at the 3GSM World Congress in Barcelona.

This episode we interview Jim Morrison, CEO of smartphone maker i-mate about the evolution of the Windows Mobile-based smartphone, the growth of the industry in general, how battery technology is hoding back smartphone development and the lack of operator support for 3G smartphones.

You can download it directly and subscribe to the RSS feed for this and all future episodes at

OK, so posts have been a bit thin on the ground of late…

My bad! Since I last posted to my blog things have been manic, and I’ll be doing something tonight and tomorrow inbetween the copious amounts of work I am bringing home at the moment to address this.

In the meantime, this is what I have been up to:

  • Went to San Jose for a few days on business to visit Network Appliance, had a complete blast!
  • Bought a new laptop in Best Buy for an insane cheap price – pictures soon (and yes, I have geeked it out already)
  • Went to Dusseldorf to visit Imation – I am now an expert in Blu-ray and HD-DVD technology
  • Went to Barcelona for the 3GSM World Congress – had a good time and a good show (check out the next Computing Podcast for my interview with i-mate CEO Jim Morrison) even though I hate Barcelona, and it still smells of poo!
  • Went to Paris to attend the Alcatel Enterprise Forum – really didn’t think there were still hotels that grim that could retain 4 stars! Disappointing conference, but picked up a good interview which will be popping up in the podcast soon.

More shortly, but in the meantime, that lot will give you an idea of what I will be posting.

Behold, for I am an executible!

It would appear that in addition to my life being R rated, my life can also be summed up in the form of a .exe file (could have been worse, I could have been a virus).

You are .exe When given proper orders, you execute them flawlessly.  You're familiar to most, and useful to all.
Which File Extension are You?

Another nice bit of work from the guys at
