When not engrossed reading a good book on my kindle, watching science fiction, singing with the Cappella Singers or looking for new apps for my Iphone or Ipad l also trawl through the Internet and post useful articles on my Blog. I welcome your thoughtful contributions or questions.  I mainly hangout on Google+ where I find a nice level of engagement and plenty of interesting posts. I also use Twitter and Facebook. For video conversations I use Skype but am actively looking for an alternative. I am still amazed at what you can do on the Internet and where it's possible I enjoy being an early adopter.

I am a Secular Humanist and passionate supporter of Social Justice issues and can be found on Google+ in heated but respectful debate on these and many other topics. When reading I enjoy Science Fiction, Fantasy and History as well as good smattering of Politics. If I had to choose a hero a word that is often over used I would say Carl Sagan. So that's me if you want to know more just drop me a line via my Contact Page or through the social media sites I have mentioned.

Internet on your TV

I recently had to upgrade my TV due to the fact that here in Australia digital TV is replacing the old analogue system. A side effect of this was that my new TV can connect to the internet. I was curious about this so I grab a long 3 metre network cable and plugged it into my modem router and then into the TV. The TV immediately picked up that I was connected. I then fiddled around and managed to look at web sites and use a Twitter widget. This TV also comes with Skype installed but you need a specific web cam from Sony before you can use it.

You can now start to see the convergence between equipment like Tvs and the internet. I am still unsure if you would want to be interrupted with a skype call while watching TV but the possibilities for internet convergence are endless. I have included a pic showing my website on TV apologies for the blurry image that was me not the TV.
