Blah, Blah! Technology — technology trends and commentary


Blah, Blah! Technology is about delivering technology commentary and opinion on the kind of technology trends that shape lives, shape businesses and shape the future…

My name is Wayne Smallman, and I attempt to take the complexities of technology and distill their terms, phrases and industry nomenclature into smaller, easier analogies and examples that hopefully anyone can read and understand and to make technology accessible to the layman.

Here’s a little history and background to Blah, Blah! Technology, by way of an interview over on Peopleize.

I’d love to see more writings of this caliber related to future predictions.

Good job. I like what I see with your blog, from its name to the great info inside. You deserve more readership, and I will make it a point to pop in from time to time or pass your stuff along.

~ Karl

And for me, the greatest question of all is “What if?”

I try not to be the echo, though by virtue of simply providing commentary on something in the news, I have to be some kind of echo, albeit a quieter one.

In response to the issue of: “Blogging and the Problem of the Echo Chamber”, I had this to say:

… But you could always argue the same point about your daily trip to the supermarket. You walk down each isle, lots of different products all with basically the same content, or at least purporting to offer the same contents. However, it’s up to you as a consumer to apply some trial & error to these products to determine which is best for you…

So it’s not so much about what I’m saying, or how many other people are saying the same thing, it’s about how I say my thing.

An insight into Wayne Smallman, technology ‘blogger

A little about Wayne Smallman and his web design & development business — Octane Interactive

My name is Wayne Smallman and I’m the guy behind Octane Interactive, a web design & development agency based in Yorkshire, England:

I help people make money from the Web. I help people work over the Web. I help people measure what they’re doing on the Web. A clear, simple, pain-free and focused, professional service. Octane has been in business for over 8 years and counting…

I also provide a broad consultancy service to my clients, which usually entails talking about business strategies, planning and implementing web technologies and web applications throughout their business.

More often than not, I find myself asking my clients really obvious questions. And there’s a good reason for this, too — I work with my clients, to help them challenge the perceptions of their business success and to make the most of their “Organic Knowledge”.

As businesses grow, they grow organically. Stuff that they know is accepted and taken for granted.

I help my clients unearth this ‘forgotten knowledge’ and make them think again about the value of that knowledge and what that knowledge represents.
