Internet fatigue?
Is social networking wearing us out? It's pretty tiring learning these new technologies like Twitter and Facebook.

And are we actually becoming less social? Can't be bothered picking up the phone when an email is easier?

This video from WebProNews examines the impact of social networking.

  Welcome to the July 2009 edition.
  • History really does talk!
  • It's easy to forget what a rich fabric of history and culture we have in this country when we live in the middle of it, so here's a new website that makes the fun of history totally accessible.

    The Real History Talks website brings alive the history of Edinburgh with an interactive tour of the Royal Mile and a downloadable audio tour and map so you can meander down the Mile from the Castle to Holyrood Palace, visiting the scenes of murder, mystery, scandal and romance along the way.

    Written by a local historian and experienced guide, and produced by BBC radio professionals, the tour will give you a real sense of stepping back into another time.

    Take the tour ....
  • Flood at Blot Towers
  • This month we had a little excitement at the Blot Design office when the building was flooded after a rainstorm of tropical intensity.

    The rooms were flooded by about 6 inches of rainwater, soaking everything on the ground.

    The office will not be habitable again until sometime next month. Needless to say, our ability to be contacted has been impacted by this, but please leave messages or use mobile numbers and we will get back to you as soon as we can.
