The passage of time....

This is a great example of what you can use the Internet for

'On June 17th, every year, the family goes through a private ritual: we photograph ourselves to stop a fleeting moment, the arrow of time passing by'

click here to look at the changing faces of one family over nearly 30 years!

And the winner is.....

2004 webby awardsI see that the nominee's for this years award have been announced. There are quite a few categories (30 in all). I am always interested in the 'Personal Web Site' entries. The one that I like this year is this one Lots of new parents are creating some kind of web site to mark the arrival of the newest member of the family. The difficult bit is making the site look good whilst being easy to navigate and yet still contain all the information that you want to get over to the vistor. I think this site manages to do all these things very well.

What do you think?

I have been messing around with my new Gmail account. I am glad that I have managed to get a decent email address that does not contains numbers due to the one I want having already been taken. (e.g. Hotmail).

The domain name was registered on the 13th August 1995
The domain name was registered on the 15th Sept 1997

April the first

Google mail provides one gigabyte of storage - many times more than existing rivals that also offer free e-mail. Each user would have storage equivalent to 500,000 pages of e-mail, said Google.'
'But there's a catch to the new service. Hoping to turn a profit from Gmail, privately held Google has programmed its computers to dissect the topics being discussed in the e-mails and then deliver text-based ads related to the subjects.
For instance, an e-mail from one friend to another discussing an upcoming concert might prompt Google to include an advertising link from a ticketing agency.'
