I’d like to introduce my latest personal project – See Stockholm. This is a photo blog of my life here in Stockholm, Sweden and is a photography project I’ve wanted to do for a while now.
The idea for this site was inspired by my friend’s David duChemin and Dave Delnea‘s mantra of ‘create things & share it’. Dave Powell’s photo blog has also been an inspiration to share my photographs more publicly.
Now that I’m settled in Stockholm, I’m hoping to be able to also start posting to Endlessly Curious again. And I’ll be posting my photographs to Shoot Stockholm on a regular basis.
The five iPhone applications I use every day:
An excellant Google Reader client, perfect for reading the news during the commute to work.
For sync free podcast listening its hard to beat Instacast, I wish I’d found it sooner!
Apple should just buy this app to replace the built in camera application, its that good.
So much better than the official twitter client it isn’t funny!
- Analytics Pro
The best Google Analytics client I’ve found so far, very handy for checking up on your sites on the go!

Some pages I’ve found interesting recently:
- Online Python Exercises
A good summary of some of the Python exercises available online. If this interests you also check out my ‘Getting started with Python’ post.
- The New Apple Advantage
An insightful piece on Apples successful strategy of offering minimal configuration options for its phones, tablets and computers as a way to simplify the buying process and improve revenue.
- Developing Razor Sharp Focus
Worth it alone for the very useful mind map. I like his focus on creating rituals, managing email distractions and taking time to reflect and review.
- Why I Go Home: A Developer Dad’s Manifesto
A very good post on work-life balance for software developers. I especially liked the following observation: ‘If you screw up at your job you can always get another one, but if you screw up your family, especially your relationship with your children, it will stay with you and stay screwed up forever‘ so many people seem to fail to realise that jobs are temporary but family is forever..
- XKCD: File Transfer (Comic)
Just why is transferring files still so awkward in this day and age?
