Technorati Testing

I’m experimenting with Technorati. Recently I’ve been using it quite a bit to search for breaking ‘news’ from the blogosphere and I thought “hey, why not give tags a go?” (I was also trying to avoid completing my online CV – but at least I’ve made a start now!)

Today I also:

  • Paid in cheques. Always a fuzzy feeling.
  • Applied for an Abbey e-savings account. Always a daunting feeling.
  • Listened to Loney – Akon… in Dutch. Courtesy of Pingu. Much better than the English version, precisely because you can’t understand the stupid lyrics.
  • Had one of those wonderful phone conversations with Holly Parkhouse where she manages to sound remarkably upbeat even with a swollen eye (ouch)
  • Made Alex Trafford laugh with my suggestions to improve Aspire magazine – this rather dull thing that’s send to all the members of the ‘National Academy for Gifted and Talented Youth’. He suggested I blog them, so here I am.

Things I’d like to be included in Aspire*:

  • Geek page 3 girls
  • Dilbert
  • Geek TV Guide
  • Advice columns done by geeks for stupid people written in a patronising and mocking tone
  • Free gifts!

*(Not entirely serious – don’t write angry letters)
