A fan of startups, entrepreneurship, getting things done faster, penning the occasional blog post, taking photos, designing, listening to good music and making lurrrve.

    With the advent of computers and the web, I adore making the use of desktop applications, scanners, web services and basically anything tech orientated for gifts. Not only is it more fun, but it’s easier, you learn quite a bit about a particular piece of software and on top of all that – it will often make you look pretty good!

    So what gifts have you given which have made the use of technology? 

    I’m happy to go first as long as you follow!

    1. A Timeline of her life.

    Using AOL’s CircaVie, which has recently shut dow, I made a timeline of my partners life from birth until now including all the “love-dovey” stuff we did together in between. The beauty of it is that we then spend time every few weeks, adding to it which was a date in itself.

    We did end up moving the timeline over to Capzles who offer a similar service.

     

    picture-722. A PhotoMosaic into a Poster

    The other gift which went down a storm was a photomosaic poster I made which had about a hundred different photos of us and our families – all fitted together perfectly to form one large poster of us. We still have the poster in one of the rooms of our home and it still looks good.
