Since the beginning of the year, I am pursuing a masters degree in international journalism at a Scottish university.

As such, I have had the great pleasure to talk with a former FT.com editor about my blog here at Scilogs.com, and she gave me great advice. Moreover, one of our first assignments is to come up with a multimedia blog.

These are some key takeaways of my current blogs’ analysis:

  • Use lots of images
  • Use lots of links
  • Use a blog roll
  • Write preferrably short pieces
  • Use a compelling layouts and graphics
  • Create unique content

Short and sweet: Today, I launch a new blog (which is kind of a spin-off of this one). Of course, I will continue contributing to Scilogs/Algoworld and writing about algorithms and prediction models.

The new blog is called JACKED IN, and it is less scientific but more about how technology secretly runs our lives.

Some of the topics will be:

  • The Internet of Things
  • Cyborgs
  • Sci-fi movie reviews
  • Tech projects that influence our future lives

The first post is about a case for renaming the “Internet of Things”.
