From today’s #TravelChatSA the topic was on the beautiful Knysna which is on my bucket list, I have decided to select Tweets showing the images of the area for today’s post.

Migrated from WordPress.Com to WordPress.Org

I had not realised how easy it was to migrate until this past weekend (24 Jan 2013)from WordPress.Com to WordPress.Org. Thanks to a chat I was having with Natalie Singer and Andy Preston.

Tonnes of widgets and plugins to deal with! But am loving it so far. If you view the site on a mobile you have the option to view mobile site (looks like an app) or full site. *This is way kewl*. There is a plugin called Floating Social Media – It gives you social media icons that float on the page as you scroll up and down….

I really love this theme but I want to see what WordPress.org has to offer 🙂

What is Time?

DefTimeTime is a dimension in which events can be ordered from the past through the present into the future and also the measure of durations of events and the intervals between them [Wikipedia]. One view is that time is part of the fundamental structure of the universe – a dimension independent of events, in which events occur in sequence. The opposing view is that time is part of a fundamental intellectual structure within which humans sequence and compare events.

“Einstein showed that there isn’t a universal time,” explains Paul Davies. “Your time and my time get out of step with each other if we move differently.” In other words, the duration of time between two events can vary depending on how fast you are moving in the period between the events. Time is relative to the observer, or as the physicist Kip Thorne prefers to put it, time is “personal”

“People like us who believe in physics know that the distinction between the past,
the present and the future is only a stubbornly persistent illusion”    Albert Einstein

3 Things Experts Don’t Have to Be

3 Things Experts Don’t Have to Be by Douglas Kruger

We misunderstand the nature of top icons. Do they fit the industry stereotype? Are they very formal and buttoned down? Do they have to have academic qualifications? Professional Speaker Douglas Kruger explores 3 things industry experts do not have to be…

Are Bloggers Journalists?

The fact that you blog, are you a Journalist? The question that we argued over lunch at #ITWebSocial Summit 2013 with @BontleMoeng  , @lilly_tech and @TkaySA and I promised them I would post a blog post.

Let’s start with definitions (my favourite way in any argument)

Blogger – a person who keeps and updates a blog.

Journalist – A person who writes for newspapers or magazines or prepares news to be broadcast on radio or television.

So by definition, the fact that WeszMadz blogs doesn’t make me a Journalist but just a person who keeps and updates a blog. (I LIKE)

But what is a blog?

A Blog – A Web site on which an individual or group of users record opinions, information, etc. on a regular basis.

NetFlorist nets it on Keeping Customer Informed

I have used Netflorist for a long time now but this most recent order made me post a quick post on my blog. Why? Well I will post the full response below. Since it’s women’s day on Friday I though let me get Mrs WeszMadz some flowers which I did online on www.netflorist.co.za    I then received the usual confirmation of order and thank you email. The next day I got this email from them with the heading “Your delivery is on the way”

Hi Wesley

We just wanted you to know that your order of (what I ordered was written here. NO you won’t know what it was) for delivery to Mrs WeszMadz has just left our hub and should be delivered by 09:20 today.

This is an estimate and delivery times could vary based on pot-holes the size of the Grand Canyon, taxi drivers overtaking on a blind rise on the wrong side of the highway, and the blue light brigade rushing to get our ministers to McDonalds before closing time, BUT we’ll do our best to get to Mrs WeszMadz on time.

How’s that for keeping the customer informed and some humour! Keeping the Customer Informed Lesson Folks!

And Yes ofcourse on delivery I get this email with the heading “Delivery confirmation for Mrs WeszMadz”

Hi Wesley (next time try Good Day Wesley)

We’ve been looking in our magic ball and predict that Mrs WeszMadz is going to
contact you shortly to sing your praises because your gift (what I ordered) has arrived at its final destination.

It was delivered today (07 Aug 2013) at 09:24 And Signed For By Pauline (name changed to protect the innocent)

Hope you’ve got your phone close by and thank you again for the support
