How to collaboratively write a blog post using Google Wave

Richard Darell: So, I invited my friend and colleague Fernando Fonseca (@fjfonseca) to try a new approach when writing articles for Bit Rebels.

In an attempt to create a sense of a more lively climate at Bit Rebels I thought this could be a way to connect with some of the writers and get […]

Geek Speak | How to upgrade your Webslang to Web 2.0

After watching and reading the highly interesting post by Susan Elaine Cooper “Do Not Feed The Trolls” I was inspired to find out how everyone can get up to par with the ever changing webslang. Words emerge all the time that slightly makes it harder for novice Internet users to stay along with a conversation and it’s most important to update yourself every now and then.

Some just didn’t look right to me so I didn’t […]
