Here is a list and brief overview of the websites I currently own and run with a little bit about them. You can find out more by clicking through to their respective pages or visiting them directly.
MacGazette is a technology news blog (focusing mainly on Apple) and was founded jointly with a friend and fellow student Chris Ericsson in Janurary 2011. MacGazette enters the somewhat crowded market of Apple and technology blogs trying to only bring the most interesting news and cutting out the endless dull posts about new stores, patent disputes and anything else unless they are genuinely interesting. We also aim to do this without spamming news and RSS feeds with unrealted products and posting spurious rumours as fact.
Since January we have continued to grow despite several periods of absence caused by our studies and lack of a third writer to take off some pressure. We are still looking for an additional writer / business partner so if your interested send an email to firstname.lastname@example.org. Read More ->
TechChoices was founded when i had things i wanted to write about outside MacGazette’s remit, particularly solutions to them little problems you spend hours searching the internet for. I also post any product or service reviews here from time to time.
TechChoices uses the same design as MacGazette currently as time constraints mean I don’t have time to develop a design of its own (and keep it up to date with all the latest MacGazette features). I also feel this gives the sites a sort of brand identity but I would like to change the colour scheme to differentiate the sites a bit better. Read More ->
Giant Sweets (giantsweets.co.uk)
GiantSweets was my first ‘proper’ website and was built from the ground up in PHP to improve my coding skills and introduce me back to PHP after my couple of years of absence in this area. Coding for this site helped by learning of python enormously for my masters project (see EAMPy) and although i have sidelined the project in favor of MacGazette, i still update it from time to time and hope to automate it and have it running by itself when time permits.
