Socialising news

posted by Steve Bowbrick

Kevin Rose was in town for last week’s FOWA event. He was at the BBC the other day too, although he singularly failed to excite an otherwise eager audience of editors and technologists from around the Corporation. Anyway, his presentation at FOWA was a bit more interesting. His principle message was that Digg’s mission is not to add more features but to ‘be more important’ by—among other things—jumping from the web to other media/platforms.

Some people at the BBC have picked up on this idea. There are dozens of people around BBC Future Media & Technology—but also in the media-specific divisions of the Corporation—working on (or imagining) ways of ‘socialising’ TV, of grafting social media functions onto linear/broadcast output.

So several people here at the BBC were very interested to hear Rose’s words on the topic. My contribution is the Photoshop job above. I’ll leave it at that. I’m not theorising the actual functionality of a Digg button for your remote. In fact, Digg would probably be entirely the wrong kind of tool for the job: it should probably be a combination of a notifier like Twitter (“Hey, I’m watching Strictly Come Dancing!”) and a bookmarker like del.icio.us (“Hey, this is a great show and it’s about the cha-cha, celebrity and Bruce Forsyth”)…

    One of the main misconceptions about glass is that it is rather dull
    with practically no privacy. With all the new advances in technology- that
    is simply just not the case anymore.

    Over the years, glass manufacturers have come up with various types of glass like double glazed windows and patterned glass.
    You can use glass doors for your bathroom, patio
    and other places at your house to give your home an ultramodern or elegant look and feel.

    So you do not have to worry about the glass being
    dull or plain. Purchasing glass that has
    etched designs of nature like flowers and trees or any other categories based on your personal taste is possible nowadays.
    So finding the right kind of glass to blend with other furnishings in a particular
    room is indeed possible. There is no shortage of choices
    in terms of glass design. 

    Another benefit of glass is in terms of insulation. Glass is not
    a good conductor of heat. During our hot summer season, with all the advances in energy efficiency with glass, glass will not absorb heat, making the room hotter.
    During a winter or autumn period, glass will
    not cause much heat loss. 

    So you and your family might enjoy a more cooling effect during summer and a
    warmer effect during winter or autumn. You also
    save money in terms of utility bills. Since there is
    less heat loss, you can turn down the heating system to a lower temperature, which results in less energy consumption. During summer,
    there would not be any necessity to lower the temperature. 

    Another benefit of using glass doors and windows is that it just
    makes your home brighter and more cheerful feeling.
    With our famous sunny days, there might be
    no necessity to switch on lights to light up a particular place since there is sufficient natural light.

    There are many types of tiles available nowadays.
    The method of tile cleaning will depend more on the tile type.
    However there are couple of things to be followed to add the sheen and glow of the
    tiles.

    Do the regular floor cleaning
    Clean the spills as soon as they occur

    It is very crucial to clean dirt and water too as soon as they
    are split to prevent the stains. Place a doormat which helps in reduction of mud or dirt entering through
    footsteps.

    There are basically following tile floors where in one will use the tile and grout cleaning process, types of tiles are as follow -

    Ceramic
    Porcelain
    Stone

    Porcelain Tile cleaning

    Porcelain tiles maintenance is not difficult if the surface is cleaned regularly.
    The surface can be vacuum cleaned every day or just sweep it.
    The wet mopping is required once in a week. Use of mild floor cleaners will do
    for the mopping. One can make it at home by mixing vinegar and water.

    Ceramic Tile Cleaning

    The rule is followed here as well; remove the dirt as soon as possible.
    Vacuum clean the tiles every day or a simple broom can be used.
    Plain water or the special ceramic tile cleaners
    can be used for the wet mopping.

    Stone Tile Cleaning

    One need to be careful while cleaning the tiles made of stones as they are natural
    minerals. Never use harsh floor cleaners. Sweep or vacuum clean. After using any floor cleaner use a dry mop to
    soak any type of liquid residue.

    Grout Cleaning

    Along with the tile cleaning it is very important to regularly clean the
    grout, i.e. the lines between the tiles. Hence tile and grout cleaning goes simultaneously.
    Grout is porous in nature and attracts dirt, grease etc.
    The surface looks shabby if the grout is unclean. It can also be a cause of mildew or mould in the damp areas like bathrooms.
    It is best to have a seal (colour or clear) on the grout which will
    not only protect the surface but also acts as an anti-fungal agent.

    Many a times it gets difficult to maintain the floor due to hectic working schedules.

    Hence we come in picture and provide the tile and grout cleaning services to our clients at a very affordable price.
    Moreover the price depends on the type of the tiles,
    number of tiles and size of the tiles to be cleaned.

    Following steps are followed for the tile and grout cleaning after
    you contact us-

    Pre inspection of the tiles and floor.
    Shifting of the furniture, if any, from that space.
    Dry Sweeping of the surface
    Application of the suitable cleaning solution.
    Cleaning the surface with a soft pad.
    High pressure cleaning
    Mopping and drying the surface.

    We have our experts who carry special tools to do the tile and grout cleaning;
    the grout sealing is also done if ordered.

    I know this if off topic but I’m looking into starting my own weblog and was wondering what all
    is required to get setup? I’m assuming having a blog like yours would cost
    a pretty penny? I’m not very internet smart so I’m not 100% sure.
    Any recommendations or advice would be greatly appreciated.
    Thank you
