Content Whether you're a small business or an individual, choosing a domain name can be a frustrating and quite personal task. Particularly if you are new to setting up a website.

However, unlike choosing a name for your new-born, each domain name is unique - you won't find yourself bumping into another mark.com down the digital road.

Hence, this creates the all too common scenario of having to "find", rather than "choose" a unique domain to create your slice of cyberspace. It goes without saying that knowing your domain name options will make the task easier.

Content In July, we visited Taipei and Seoul. Since it was our first time in either city, it was an interesting and fun experience, but natural phenomena also made the visits more memorable. No less than an earthquake and a solar eclipse.

Earthquake in Taipei

In Taipei, we experienced the earthquake that happened to Taiwan on Tuesday 14th July at 2.05am. With the epicentre off the coast, the magnitude of the earthquake was 6.3, but was only a 3 in Taipei City.

Content One of my interests in spending time in Hong Kong was to get some insight into the design scene. I came across the monthly networking event Web Wednesday, which happens in the Volar Bar & Club, located in Central on Hong Kong Island. Thankfully (and ashamedly) for me, this means it is conducted in English.

Web Wednesday

Time Out Hong Kong cites Web Wednesday as being one of Hong Kong's biggest networking events. Subjects covered appear to be quite diverse covering areas such as Facebook app development and online communities, with founder and host Napolean Biggs interviewing invitees such as the founding developer of WordPress, Matt Mullenweg.
