Temporarily Closed

Due to other writing commitments (and the ongoing workload of a contractor), 'Best of Both Worlds' will be closing 'till further notice and there'll be no updates for a while. Alas (in the RL absence of time-travel or cloning) there's only so many hours in the day. If you'd like to stay up-to-date on what I'm up to and what I'm reading, watching, walking and enjoying, please follow me on Twitter at @nikhewitt.

I will be still writing monthly on the Conversify Blog, as well as the blogs and articles I write for customers and periodicals, plus maintaining all my other social media channels. I'm also doing the Dirty WHOers Doctor Who podcast, but take that one with a big pinch of salt.

So, for now at least...

"One day I shall come back. Yes, I shall come back. Until then, there must be no regrets, no tears, no anxieties. Just go forward in all your beliefs, and prove to me that I am not mistaken in mine. Goodbye..."


Epic App Fail

Okay, perhaps not my best picture, but really, and this is the 2nd (and most looky-likey) attempt...

...this is
Coke Zero's new 'Facial Profiler', designed to find a facial match on Facebook. After you connect your Facebook account with it, the app scans your photos (or you can use a webcam pic) then use fancy facial recognition software to match your face against others in the database.

Nice idea, and the interface is great, but seriously, are they on drugs? I'd have settled for anyone with a beard. Epic, epic, epic fail.
