Lilian Shaw.

There is a woman called Lilian Shaw, she doesn't know me.
Lilian thinks that I am a boy, she keeps asking me if I am ok.

'Is that little boy alright?'

Lilian tells anyone who will listen that I am special and that I need looking after.

'Are you okay little boy?'

Lilian says that I am a nice little boy, she doesn't ever want anything to happen to him.

'Little boy, are you alright?'

Lilian Shaw comes to life at this time. 20.45GMT.

Birth.

Ode to Platform 2.


Platform2 is your chance to make change happen, not only for you but for people who live a world away from anything you or I have ever experienced.

"I’m stuck. I am stuck doing nothing, making no progress, wasting time. I am tired of waiting around. I need change, change that effects my path for the future. I need to see and experience the bigger picture."

Words that seem to have led to greater things. With Platform 2, I am sure that my view will most certainly change. I am lucky enough to be one of those excepted on to Platform 2, a global volunteer project which is funded by the Department for International Development.

This amazing opportunity is something which you too can experience, it is just a click away. Only four select questions stand between you and the chance to travel to Ghana, South Africa, Nepal, Peru or India. Aged between 18-25?...then what are you waiting for, apply.

Stuck in a rut? Want to make a difference...then apply to Platform 2 before it's too late. The application deadline for the last departure of this life-changing experience is the 14 June 2010.

Twitter @anywhere

Twitter announced their @anywhere service at SXSW which will aim to intergrate twitter with web sites.

Building on the early goals of twitter the @anywhere service will extract and connect information and people in real time from external websites.

The twitter platform has evolved to support conversation between netizens that are part of a strong social network. These networks have allowed individuals with similar interests to interact with each other in real time and share discourse, information and hypertext. This is something which twitter can go far beyond with the roll out of @anywhere.

This extension of the API will allow users to add twitter to different contexts, extending twitter to more places and connecting news, artists and users in a real time.

Biz Stone commented on the twitter blog, "With @anywhere, web site owners and operators will be able to offer visitors more value with less heavy lifting."

People will be able to connect to each other and share information and conversation aiding better decsisions. You can find out what is happening in the world that you care about, connecting to the people that care about the same things.

Watch Evan Williams, Twitter's CEO, introduce @anywhere at SXSW2010

In the future intergrating with media sites will allow audiences to collate news as and when it happens. Headlines can be sent out via twitter, but @anywhere will also allow the gathering of information via twitter.

Stone commented further, "When we're ready to launch, imagine being able to follow a New York Times journalist directly from her byline, tweet about a video without leaving YouTube, and discover new Twitter accounts while visiting the Yahoo home page -and that's just the beginning."

Grandad.



These flowers were left tied to a fench at the top of a cliff in the grounds of Saint Mary's Church Whitby on Valentines Day 2010.

The Rush.

A place for everything
scratch away until it exists
it is there
for you

for me.

A place for nothing
all at once you shall implode
we are here
with you

with me.

A place for existence
a shining example of a benign being
breathe in

we all exhale for you.

Walking alone.

I stopped scanning the streets
for this art of innocuous love

Empty pockets of air
dragged through a seamless lifetime

A reflection of tides
in urban puddles

No time to catch it

No time my love

Orders.
