I make things on the web, mobile and in the actual world.

I've done lots of bits and bobs over the years, and right now I'm mostly working on this.

I enjoy speaking about things I like, most recently this. You can email me if you'd like, and I'm on twitter.

Joe says:

snailmail?

16th Apr 2005, 13:09

alfie says:

took me long enough :s

however, the lucky recipient has some SERIOUS booteh! :D

16th Apr 2005, 13:10

Joe says:

weee!....I could go check the database to see who the lucky recipient is....but that would spoil the fun :)

alfie says:

:D

and it aint you pal ;) I went for someone I find interesting but dont really know that well on the site you know what I mean?

16th Apr 2005, 13:12

Joe says:

aah...a good plan my friend I think I may do the same if I ever get my turn :D

16th Apr 2005, 13:16

teflon says:

ooh, you get to pick someone? I thought that the snailmail doodah picked someone at random for you

16th Apr 2005, 13:33

alfie says:

non - although that would have been fairer really :D

16th Apr 2005, 13:48

Joe says:

*facepalm*....it's always the simple ideas that elude me.....I could implement that pretty easily actually.

16th Apr 2005, 13:49

alfie says:

reckon you should? thinking more about it, I think it's the right way to go about it...

16th Apr 2005, 13:52

Joe says:

absolutely, the only real problem would be preventing people from being selected twice in a certain time frame (I wouldn't want this to be a once only thing)...but I reckon I can sort something out...I'll look at it next week sometime...

16th Apr 2005, 13:55

alfie says:

cool - this'll be going out in teh post monday so... thinking about it though, randomising the selection process sort of removes some of the reason to send, to connect in the real world like this - I remain unconvinced it's a good idea...

People?

16th Apr 2005, 14:07

Joe says:

a fair point....I'm willing to go with the most popular option....

16th Apr 2005, 14:10

Shoes says:

hmmm i can see the reasoning for picking yourself as its more personal/real, but also noone wants to be the last one standing on the playing field...trickey one..

16th Apr 2005, 14:21

neel says:

I can see the benefit of both.

Maybe a double-badger system: you pick a smaller list -10/15 or something - of people who's stuff you like but you don't necessarily know, and it then randomises from that?

Or you get a smaller possible-list (5?) but it chucks in an extra possibility that's completely random...

Hmm.

Shoes says:

sounds complicated.

540air says:

I reckon it's ok as is. But it's kinda fun either way.
How many of us are on the list now?

16th Apr 2005, 20:02

alfie says:

theres only 39 of us so far!
I think I agree, Im not sure!! All I know for sure is that it was excellent to be able to pick who I wanted to send to, that way I could tailor the innards of the box better too.

16th Apr 2005, 20:06

540air says:

That's convinced me. There must be a heap of fun in the preparation. Leave it random Joe. :)

Guess what i got in the post today :o)

alfie says:

wheeeeeeeeeee!!! I had LOADS of fun putting it together love.

19th Apr 2005, 17:56

alfie says:

sticker contest eh? hmmmmn. Well, we do have needs for a new flyer. =)

19th Apr 2005, 17:57

540air says:

How about a "get the mobloguk logo in the most noticeable by the masses place"? No photoshopping just real stuff.

19th Apr 2005, 17:58

spongevid says:

i think the sticker idea is ace!
if people go round sticking them up in random places, and if anyone comes across one that they didn't stick, to take a photo. coz thats a silly idea but fun.

and the winner is when there's one on tv taken by the news cameramen or something! ha.

Joe says:

I'm confused, the selection is currently down to the sender *it's not random*....I'm in the very early stages of snailmail2.0...as the one we're using at the moment was slapped together in very little time...in version 2 I'll give the sender a choice of either selecting a receiver or doing it randomly....best of both worlds.

kostika says:

And I love every bit of it.

Woooooo!

Lyzardly says:

Excellent compromise Joe!
