So this is the view pretty much backwards from the one I showed you yesterday. Those three square windows to the left of the ornate bit are ours (the windows are actually not square, they’re much longer, but you can’t see that at this angle).
If anyone needs a floral-print mobile phone, I’m happy to nip downstairs and get our retail neighbours talking to each other.
Also note that Oxford St is not really that quiet, I just seem to have got a lucky spot between the traffic!
Another morning walk audioblog which starts with a domestic chore and ends up positing a hypothesis on the influence of Podshow on creativity in podcasting.

If you want to incorporate the use of mobile technology in your marketing strategy, particularly the use of SMS then you should make time for Helen Keegan‘s forthcoming one-day workshop on 18th May in London, W1.
Helen knows more about mobile marketing and customer experience in this field than anyone I know, she makes it real and tells a good story – this won’t necessarily be everyone’s bag, but if it is your’s, go for it.
[Disclosure: Helen’s been a good friend of mine since the early 1980’s when we hung out theatrically, darling, in the splendid city of Worcester – of course she was very very wee at the time and I was not much less wee myself. Although our relationship went on hiatus during the 1990’s, we have recently been trying to find common ground to work together and I think we’re just about to crack something. Helen *will* be an interviewee on a Perfect Path Podcast. She *will* also read the Cluetrain manifesto, or maybe listen to the audio book, as read by the authors, or maybe just keep listening to me quote bits at her witheringly.]

From today Perfect Path Consulting is operating from a new base in Central London. No more dodgy Soho basement, now I’m in a dodgy garrett at the other end of Oxford Street. OK so it’s not that dodgy really it’s quite nice – and it has a view of Selfridges (as you can see)!
Contact details remain the same – leave comments here or email me as lloyd AT perfectpath DOT co.uk or lloyd DOT davis AT gmail.com (especially if sending large attachments) I’m hoping to start using Skype as my main phone service and I’ll publish details here when finalised. Shucks, I guess I’d better do some work now…
Oh yes – here’s a wee audioblog done on my walk from house to station this morning.
Dave Winer’s isn’t the only podcast I listen to every time it comes out, of course I listen to the Daily Source Code too. So I had to share this discovery with you – a couple of minutes from the master copy of Adam Curry and Ron Bloom’s strategy cast.
The two most plausible theories are a) that they did this as they were and then Adam weaved some audio-wizardry over it to make them sound (almost) straight or b) they were so pleased with the cast that they kept repeating and recording bits of it over and over into the wee small hours even though Ron was totally plastered and Adam was floating around on the ceiling, totally in love with the lampshade. You decide.

I don’t really know Dave Winer, but in the world of blogs, everyone feels like they know the people they read and I read Dave’s blog everyday and I listen to his Morning Coffee Notes podcast.
Dave turns 50 today and he’s asked for links rather than presents. I’m glad to do that for him, but I also have a little extra. Doc Searls says some really nice stuff about Dave on his own blog today. But it’s also nice to hear what people say about you when it’s not your birthday and you’re not even there to listen. So I give you a clip from Doc’s presentation to LesBlogs last week where he summed up Dave’s contribution so far – with a stirring backdrop from Clara Butt way back in 1912 and chanting at the end from Euan Semple, Anu Gupta and Doc again.
Happy Birthday Dave!
