Five for Friday | 五日(星期五)

Reading Time: < 1 minute

Five things that impressed me this week:

JUploadr – an open source alternative to Flickr’s own Uploadr software. Whilst Uploadr is great for pre-filling in all the details of your pictures it can get a bit flaky and I got tired of trying to complete picture uploads several times.

The Greatest Trade Ever – I purchased the book because I had a lot of time whilst traveling to, and around Korea. I finally finished reading this book after coming back from Korea. The book was interesting because it provides a bit of the back story on the US debt crisis that reverberated around the world in 2008/9

It was interesting to catch-up with the team at Hammerkit at The Hospital which is trying to provide a mass-production solution for web services by encouraging template reuse – in a similar way to the way that software development companies use common libraries

Wadds and Earl launched their book Brand Anarchy that distills the wisdom of numerous communications industry experts from journalists to marketers, PROs and spin doctors

The sun on Friday meant that I finally had good enough weather to justify trying Tutti Frutti Frozen Yogurt – which is a kind of automat for a variety of yogurts and toppings
