I'm not a blogger. I've tried and gave up soon. I'm just too lazy and uncreative to keep up a blog with interesting contents.I've since discovered Twitter and Flickr and later Google Buzz to be great media for sharing with the world things and thoughts I consider worth sharing. Since the launch of Google+ it has become my central point of social sharing and in combination with Picasa soon replaced most of Flickr and Twitter for me.
But sometimes none of these services offer me the possibilities to present something in the way I want it presented. That's why I decided to create this site for the rare cases where I have something interesting to show or tell. There won't be frequent updates, and many of the updates won't be new but rather things I've had sitting around in the back of mind waiting to be brought out into the world. If you want to keep informed about updates on this site make sure to follow me on Google+. You can also contact me there.
You will also find several technical articles about programming with various Google APIs (mainly Google+ APIs) here, with more coming. For my activities in this area Google has granted me membership in the Google Developers Expert program as Google+ GDE 2012-2013.
I'm not affiliated with, sponsored by, or endorsed by Google Inc. I just love their products :)
That being said, take a look at the list below to see if you find anything interesting.
