Sonant Thoughts – Episode 47: Milestones And Mixing It Up


As I approach the 50 episode milestone I'm still enamoured by being able to record anywhere and at any time I want but it's not always as simple to come up with a topic to record about.

I wonder if it's time to mix things up in order to keep them fresh.

Sonant Thoughts – Episode 43: Waiting For Final


In line with my different approach to beta testing, this is the first year for quite a while that I have not installed an OS beta (iOS or Android) on my phone - my primary device.

Why the change? What's behind it? And how does that make me feel?

Erratum:
I mention writing about my approach to testing when it was actually an earlier microcast episode.

Sonant Thoughts – Episode 42: Discussing Comments


The discussion around blog comments (should they, shouldn't they, and how) is almost as old as blogging itself.

New platforms and technologies reignite this discussion as alternative ways of handling the conversation are explored.

That's where we now find ourselves again.

My attitude to beta testing has changed over the years and I think that now makes me a better tester.

The expectations and motivations for testing are a major factor and we just have to be grown up about it.
