/home/alopix: my second home

So I have been neglecting my blog for the last couple of months and this has to stop. I guess the main reason is that my goal always was to post long(er) and meaningful posts. Sometimes of course I just don't have the motivation to write about a long topic, so I don't post at all – or I want to quickly post something but it's not worth a blog post here (but a simple tweet is not enough).

This is why I really like BBM Channels. Instead of only 140 characters you get 400, an optional title and a teaser image or video. That's where I have been posting for the last couple of days and I decided to continue posting short stuff like that but not only accessible for BlackBerry users but everybody.
As BBM Channels won't be available for everyone for some time, I decided to reopen my tumblr-blog /home/alopix.
Hope you will follow my quick updates there as well as the bigger tutorials here :)

Come join my BBM Channel ;)

Not sure if a lot of BlackBerry devs/enthusiasts follow my blog but at least I hope so ;)
If you're interested, I'd like to introduce my BBM Channel, /dev/alopix. Usually I share interesting stuff related to anything remotely interesting to devs (news, dev tips, …).
So follow me if you like: C0047B612, QR code will also open the Channel on your BlackBerry.

For all the Android and iOS devs out there: remember this post when BBM For All will be updated and Channels available – sometime later this year (hopefully sooner than later ;)).

BTW. there's just one thing that bug me about BBM Channels: no support for multiple admins. I'd really like to work together with other devs some more*.

* Read this as a hint to maybe join forces and start working on old or new projects together – also, I have no problem having guest posts or even start a real collaboration blog from scratch ;).
