According to Gartner (the world's leading information technology research and advisory company), by 2013 mobile devices will overtake desktop computers and laptops as the most common web access device worldwide.

Twitter and the Christchurch Earthquake February 2011

At 12.51pm on Tuesday 22nd February Christchurch as we all knew it changed. The beautiful ‘Garden City’ and my hometown of Christchurch has been in a state of turmoil and mixed emotion since.
