My Contribution to Spouse 2.0 Day Technorati icon

December 7, 2007 | Filed under:


Ashley and

over at Faraday Media have created a new day they are calling Spouse 2.0 and today is the day.

Here's my contribution to the worthy cause of staying married whilst being a start-up junkie.

I realised the other week that my biggest failing as a spouse was not paying enough attention to the small stuff. Hey, I am busy changing the world so how am I going to notice that the floor needs vacuuming?

I just don't see it. I am on conference calls, writing spec and blog posts, designing user interfaces, speaking with India about outsourcing, etc. The goals are big, the ambition is high. Its about creating a perfect world for my family...

The problem is, it's insulting. Its leaving all the shit jobs to my spouse without noticing. I am actually quite happy to do house work, but just don't notice.

So here's what I did. I decided that the best way was to treat it like a startup and have a weekly meeting to agree on the goals and tasks for the week and literally schedule them in. I created a template which every week, without fail, we sit down and complete. Things we cover:

  • Weekly events: Make sure we each know what the others are doing so no double booking, birthdays are remembered, baby-sitters arranged, etc
  • Career issues: What's going on? Enough money coming in, etc
  • Tasks: Who is going to do what house work and when.

Here is the template we use.

Let me know if you find this useful.

Why the Post Void? Technorati icon

November 14, 2007 | Filed under:

Apologies for the lack of posts recently. I want to mark this moment for when I look back on my blog in the years to come and wonder what the heck happened.

This was the time when Tangler, Facebook and Twitter changed the dynamic. Why? Because ideas have become collaborative. I have discussions with people these days, more than I post ideas.

The BBC Hired Anthony! Technorati icon

September 18, 2007 | Filed under:

The BBC have hired my good friend Anthony Rose to be the new head of digital media technology. I worked closely with Anthony while he was CTO at Altnet and I was CTO for Kazaa. He has an awesome understanding of media technology and will be a force of positive change for the Beeb. Good luck mate.

The Perfect Ad? Technorati icon

The Perfect Ad?

I dunno if Facebook have always done this, but feeding sponsored messages into the News Feed has to be the perfect ad. In my News Feed, I read everything and click on almost everything.

Deep Scoble.... Deep Technorati icon

"With all the lifestreaming going on I'm wondering if anyone is actually going to create any content anymore. Instead we'll just copy it."

This is the kind of tweet I like. You could write a whole book on the thought behind it. There's a whole cultural shift in one sentence!

The KAOS Dream Technorati icon

August 20, 2007 | Filed under:

KAOS Theatre, the company I founded in the UK in 1991 is staging a rather dirty production of Shakespeare's A Midsummer Night's Dream. They are vlogging the rehearsal process on their website.

It fills me with nostalgia and happiness to watch.

Instructions Impossible to Follow Technorati icon

August 19, 2007 | Filed under:

This airport is following the ISO 14001-2004 norms. We solicit your co-operation in maintaining the standard.

This sign is displayed all over Indian airports. I spent the whole flight back to Australia reflecting upon actions I could take to follow it... nope, couldn't think of one.

My research upon returning home uncovered the revelation that ISO 14001-2204 is not, in fact, a standard for clear signage in public places as you might guess, but a standard for protecting the environment.
