Interesting Route!

I’ve used Googlemaps for some time now to plan routes. It’s now recently started including public transport (seems to be limited to buses) and walking. Given that I’d expect the walking route to take the most direct route, while avoiding motorways, I decided to see what it recommended for walking to Exeter from Southsea. I’m…

280 Slides

If we keep pushing the tools into categories, new users will continue to only use the tools for those purposes. We…

Slideshare, Tibet, China and DoS attacks
