Tribute to the world oldest blogger or blobber as she called it

Olivia Riley has signed of at the age of 108, I have still good 60 years to blog, that if I am lucky enough to live as long as Olivia. Imagine the evolution she has witnessed and taken a active role in. This Australian woman posted some 70 blog posts over a period of a year or so, she started blogging in 2007.

I am not sure how long her blog will be kept running but try going to All About Olive and see if it still there.

I never met her, I never talked to her, I never read her blog and I just heard o Olivia yesterday but her efforts are something that needs to saluted, My grandmother never understood what I did for a living, dying thinking that I was a phone repairer (the phone was as close as I could explain the computer).

Having said that, salute to you Olivia, good luck blogging on the other side

Another case of under-cover PR at YouTube?

Clip showing a young woman in her knickers playing the new Wii Fit hula hoop game has been faked on behalf of Nintendo. The UK Telegraph and LA Times have been talking about this online video, showing at YouTube and has gotten over 500.000 views, when last reported. The guy that created it Giovanny Gutierrez has said that even though he works at an advertising firm, the video was not a viral ad for Wii. Nintendo is denaying all links to the guy. I don’t know this smells funky.

Go to YouTube and look for “Wii Fit – Why You Should Buy It For Your Girlfriend”

Trivial but good to know data

According to ITsmy.com, 49% of UK workers are banned from networking sites such as Facebook and MySpace. It looks like the UK is going the same way as Corporate America by banning social media usage. With over 52% of office workers spending a large portion of their day using these sites and such solutions as MSN, no wonder this is happening.

IndexTools Rubix sneak-peak preview

Pfefff, that was nice! I just got a short introduction on Indextools 10 and Indextools Rubix and I must say that it is one of the coolest tools I have seen in a long time – Analytics 2.0 welcome.

I have been using web Analytics for nearly 10 years, first just to know the number of hits, but then to more advanced tools like DeepMatrix, Webalizer, Counter.com and WebTrends to mention few. Some 3 or 4 years back (might be longer) I found Indextools on the Internet (Google) and it was a great match from where I was standing they had the tool that did the trick, but there was still something missing, some spice that makes me go hmmmm.

Indextools Rubix is that, hmmmmm!!!

This new version of Indextools is actually mind blowing to say the least and if they can keep the big words said at the introduction, then kudos to you.

Indextools has taken Web Analytics to another level, great work!
