Google and the blog

The version of this blog at the old address managed to attract quite some hits thanks to rankings in Google – try searching for Lingon Berry and you get this blog top of the list. But with the move to .eu all that was in jeopardy – links to the […]

Web Design Index 6 – a thoroughly pleasant book

While in Helsinki over the Easter weekend, I happened to be browsing in the shop of the Kiasma Modern Art museum (nice site actually – runs on Typo3, my favourite content management system) and came across an excellent book: the Web Design Index 6. The book contains 1002 small screenshots […]

.eu frustrations

It’s always good to be a pioneer, especially if it’s something to do with both politics and technology. So on Friday 7th April I rushed to register the domain jonworth.eu, and by Sunday 9th April everything was up and running – domain name directing to blog and website, POP3 mailboxes, […]

Blogging: will politics sit up and listen?

Today on BBC News Online there is this interesting piece about the relationship between blogging and business. The essential thrust of the article is that if businesses do not listen to the swell of opinion written on blogs their business will suffer. This inevitably leads me to wonder if and […]

Pledgebank and patio heaters

Tony Blair received some positive publicity this week by volunteering to be a patron of a sports club in London if 100 other public figures volunteered to do the same. He used a website called PledgeBank to set this thing up. I had never heard of the site before and […]

Anger and fury about incompetent people

I probably should not have another rant on this blog about incompetent computer users, but I’m afraid I cannot resist it. Simply put, I have been writing little here over the last few days because I have – as ever – been spending far too many waking hours fixing damned […]

We’re back a-bloggin’

Right then. The sits is still on the same server, but some of the problems I have been having with the blog now seem to have disappeared. Can’t last! Anyway, there will for sure be plenty of posts here in the next few days while I make up for lost […]

Vänster för Europa: my latest website

It’s taken a while for this site to see the light of day, but finally the new homepage for Swedish multi-party, left-of-centre, pro-European organisation Vänster för Europa is online. I did the organisation and implementation, and they will then keep it up to date. It’s a bit strange that I […]

Blog geography

This map is the ClustrMap from today for this website – too see the latest one, click the small map at the bottom of any page. I have to say I am getting quite confused by the geographic balance of the visitors to this website… This blog is about EU […]

Websites are like buses

The old saying goes that you wait ages for a bus, and then 3 of them turn up at once. The same is true for my website work it seems – having not launched any sites for a while, I have managed to launch 3 in a week! A few […]

Fruits of my Labour: 2 websites launched

This blog has been a bit quiet recently, thanks in large part due to a stupidly large amount of website work and server admin tasks I’ve been doing. I am hence very content to be able to announce the launch of 2 new websites, both Labour Party related. The first […]
