Facebook – Paper

Well this looks rather nice. A bit more streamline and a lot less blue and white. A seemingly half decent userface for once with lots of nice gimmicks.

50 seconds in there’s a rather nice wee use of the gyro in the iphone for the buffalo photo. This is something I was actually developing a few ideas around with exploring education content so its nice to see it being used in a practical and engaging way.  For once I have to say, well done facebook.

The app will be available in the US 3rd February and you can see more here   https://www.facebook.com/paper

Oscar Wilde’s grave Through the viewfinder

oscar_wilde_grave copy

When I was in Paris in 2011 I went to pay my respects to fellow old Portoran Oscar Wilde. After coming up out of the metro you appear as if in another world full of large crypts and elaborate gravestones. It really is a beautiful thing in cities right across Europe. These gorgeous and peaceful graveyards full of past great people. Well worth a day trip if you find yourself with a spare day in Paris.

Coffee for this week

Picked up 1kg of beans from the Byres rd Tinderbox, one of the best coffee spots in Glasgow’s west end. Open till 11pm with great staff and incredible tarts.
Literally can’t take a photo without this wee fella getting in the way. Loves the smell of coffee.

Everything’s turned up just past ’11’. Smoky flavours verging on tobacco.
