Experimenting with Fragmented Medias while #walkingtoworktoday

I’ve been testing a slightly updated idea of distributing content. While it’s not unique and the tools are available to almost everyone, there’s a number of intermediary connections that rely on each other to make it work. The underlying concept is that people have unique relationships depending on the different web tools they connect with … Continue reading Experimenting with Fragmented Medias while #walkingtoworktoday

Link Drop (6·19·09)

This week’s edition of Link Drop is a bit lighter than usual.
