How a Smart Home Empowers People with Disabilities

Wed, 10 May 2017 09:08:32 +0000

… While advances in personal technology continue at a rapid pace, at times their designers seem to forget about the population that could perhaps benefit from it the most. Stabelfeldt says just the ability to charge a phone with a wheelchair didn’t even exist until a few years ago. But features like Apple’s “Home” app […]

In search of the Ubiquitous Mouthstick

Tue, 18 Nov 2014 02:17:06 +0000

Mick (email on request) sent me this very pertinent email the other day about the un-ubiquitous nature of mouthsticks. Lads is it just me or do we all use any given mouth-stick for a broad variety of tasks? I ask because I find that many of the solutions offered for a specific issue -in this […]

The Social Internet as Social Assistive Device

Tue, 18 Aug 2009 15:11:44 +0000

The social web offers a means of engagement that trascends the technology and transforms lives. Strangely or not, I tend not to see myself as disabled. Maybe that’s why I tend to focus on sharing more about what I’m doing than who I am or what I think about disability specific things – whatever those […]

Lifekludger vision from outside

Thu, 29 May 2008 11:08:14 +0000

The other day my vanity feeds came up with another connection – this time in the shape of a photo on flickr that references Lifekludger being used in a blog post. The post was by Mike Poole who’d used a photo of a drawing Roy Blumenthal had started for me when designing a logo for […]

People don’t scale, People Networks do.

Tue, 04 Mar 2008 00:27:07 +0000

I read with interest my good mate, Hugo Ortega’s UberTablet blog. Hugo was the very first guest on our Extraordinary Everyday Lives podcast and, outside of my regular colleagues, has been the single biggest supporter of my Lifekludger endeavours, and indeed myself, in a substantial way – providing equipment to try with my mouthstick especially.

Isolation kills

Mon, 03 Sep 2007 14:44:54 +0000

Social Isolation kills – period. It kills a person’s hope, kills their spirit, and kills their potential. I know a little about this phenomenon but thankfully less than a lot in the realm of those people who are living with a disability. I know a lot more about it second hand too; the stories visit […]

Lifekludger and Munge brothers geek out.

Just had a visit from Nick Hodge and Mike Seyfang. You’ll know Mike as my co-host and co-hort in all things geeky and new media and Nick is from Microsoft Channel 10 and start_geek. We were doing some geeking out while Nick shot some video and tell my geek story. Keep an eye out for […]

tools = freedom

Thu, 15 Feb 2007 09:58:44 +0000

Back on Jan 16 and 18, posts by JP alerted me of a video of Lawrence Lessig speaking at the 23rd Chaos Communications Congress. Here’s a link to the video. JP says: One of the key points made by Lawrence Lessig in his 23C3 speech is how code, once used solely to make things work, […]

UPDATE 2006-10-26: The podcast episode featuring the chat with Nancy is now online over at the Extraordinary Everyday Lives Show page Nancy White is in Australia on a whirlwind speaking tour. She was in Adelaide today and Mike was playing chauffeur and tour guide. Nancy, Mike and I took the opportunity to meet at my […]

We are Human beings not human doings

Tue, 18 Jul 2006 12:05:51 +0000

JP has some thoughts about humans multitasking which came out of something Edward Hallowell said in an article about what Mr Hallowell terms ‘Attention Deficit Trait’. Quoting the bit that sparked this from an article from the The Economist (not the interview article linked above): ……. “Mr Hallowell says that people who work in physical […]
