The Future As Seen By Me In 2010

Well looky here, things one has scanned in eh. (ignore the photo, that's some guy that made some accounting software, not sure what became of him ;) MIKE RIVERSDALE is fuming. The expensive headphones he bought in Sydney three weeks ago have just died. His first reaction is not to randomly spill expletives into his coffee, but to use his iPhone to vent his frustration to his Twitter con- tacts, under the moniker Miramar Mike. "I will also put, 'What should I do?' It's a conversation. I'm reaching out to the people following me." The council predicts hand-held digital devices such as smartphones will rule the world in 2040. They already rule the life of Mr Riversdale, whose company WaveAdept helps businesses adapt - their computing sys- tems to allow staff to work from anywhere - and with anyone. In order of fre- equency, he uses his iPhone to tweet (1136 followers; 8363 tweets since joining), e-mail, make phone calls and use online services, such as checki

Going To Webstock, Let's Meet (If Not, Why Ever Not - Get A Ticket NOW!)

Flickr: Mike outside the NewDowse at Craft2.0If you intend going to this years most awesome Webstock - really, have you seen the most awesome speakers, seen how to write a business case for it and generally got your a-into-g and sort out a ticket!

... anyway, if you're going to Webstock (Wellington Town Hall, NZ) this year then please PLEASE don't hesitate to come up to me and say kia ora/hello as it's always a pleasure to meet those of you that take time to read this blog (thank you).

For those stalkers*** out there I'm gonna be at:
  • Damian Conway's, Presentation Akido workshop all day Monday 16th
    (booked in for my 5 minutes of "constructive feedback" already, golly)
  • Michael Lopp's, Managing Humans and Projects workshop on the morning of Wednesday 18th
  • Conference proper, Thursday 19th & Friday 20th
    Not sure what actual sessions yet**
  • Post conference 'cup of tea and a slice of cake' at The Embassy Theatre
There is also the Official Unofficial Webstock Before Party at the Southern Cross on the Wednesday (5:30pm+) which I'm unlikely to get to but you just never know as Webstock is only once a year! And if this conference brings you to Wellington for the fitst time then check out the Welingtonista's extra specially special Beginners Guide To Wellington.

Anywho - say hi in person or via Twitter @MiramarMike

And now you know where I'll be - where will you be?
... maybe we can do a deal ...

* Picture of me at theNewDowse in Lower Hutt for a Craft2.0 event - next one on April 11th
** Have asked the busy busy Webstock team for an update to their Official Webstock Google Calendar but ... we still wait
*** Stalkers, check out Google Latitude for all those stalking requirements


  1. I'll be hiding down the back.

  2. Top that you'll be there. May be a bit of a "fan" when I say hi, do apologise in advance

  3. I would be there but it is a bit of a hike from Toronto. They need to hold these things around Christmas when I am actually in Wellington (:

  4. I'll pass on the request ... can you guarantee at least 200 fellow Canadian-type residents will be joining you as that'll surely boost your requests chance ;-)

  5. I'm coming down from Auckland, just for the conference, so it will be neat if I bump into you down there. Cheers, David.

  6. @GreySkinnedBoy Perfect - and it should be easy to spot you in the crowd, what with your grey skin and all that :-)
