For some time now I have been playing with the idea of moving this blog onto a Wordpress build, and have a test site currently in production. It should be going live soon, maybe this week, or next. I have also been having a think about how I am using this blog, and have in mind, at least for a few weeks an experiment where, as well as the longer thought pieces, I also post daily on something that has come across my desk that is worth sharing.
This, by definition, could make for a lot more work - however, it could also be interesting - especially if I take my own advice and not worry too much about it being perfect - i.e. get stuff out and see if people react/respond to it.
To start this little experiment off I offer below, courtesy of one of the McGovern team, this lovely TED presentation from Jonny Lee where he demonstrates his famous Nintendo WII hack which turns a $50 device into an interactive white board. Note he doesn't claim it will totally reproduce all the features of a multi thousand dollar version - but gives 80% of the functionality for 1% of the cost.
He also has another version of the same hack over on You Tube. This one has been viewed 1,812444 times! If you want more including a lot more handholding on what to do, then go to his personal web site, here.
