I have a channel on YouTube with various short, but hopefully informative videos on it. Do feel free to check it out, like and share the videos and do please comment on them - feedback is always a really useful thing to have! Go to my YouTube Channel
I have linked to some of my popular presentations which are available on Slideshare. Feel free to use them, comment, download or embed them.
I upload my photographs onto my Flickr channel. Most of them are going to be personal in nature, though you’re welcome to view them, but some are more professional. Library posters, and Word Clouds for example.
I write a lot of articles on different aspects of the internet, and you are most welcome to make use of them for your own education. I would ask you to check back with me first though before you use them elsewhere; I do retain and reserve my copyright on them. Other than that - I hope that you find them interesting and enjoyable.
Fake or Spoof websites
This has always been a very popular set of three articles. It lists various spoof or fake websites in the areas of social science, science, medicine and commerce. If you want to teach your colleagues or class NOT to trust information that they find on the internet, this is an excellent place to start.
Which social network?
There are a huge number of social networks available that may be of interest to you. We have Facebook and Twitter obviously, but then there is LinkedIn, Google+, Pinterest, Mumsnet and so on.
Which one(s) should you spend time with? This article will attempt to answer that question for you.
The great Spam Experiment
This is quite an old article, but it’s still very popular, so I’m including it. I ran an experiment to see what sort of spam I was getting, and how I got it. While it is, as I say, slightly dated now, it’s still worth a read in order to protect yourself a little bit from getting the stuff.

Meta tags; where, what, when and how?
This is another fairly old article, but it’s still widely referenced, so I didn’t want to get rid of it, but it’s not one that I have kept up to date, so I would advise caution if you’re considering on actively using it. However, if you want a good background, this should do the job for you.
