The De Matos Ryan director on prawning nets, settling disputes with neighbours and following too many people on Twitter
What is your favourite website?
What is your worst digital habit?
Incessantly updating live events on my mobile whilst on the move. This has been particularly bad during the Olympics.
Iphone/Blackberry/Android – which side are you on?
Blackberry – justified as a simple workhorse without too many distractions. But at home I am permanently on my wife’s iphone.
Are you into social networking (LinkedIn, Twitter, Facebook, etc.)?
Absolutely. It is fascinating to see how different people prefer one platform over another. For us they are market stalls in the ether – an informal way of showing the colour around the edges of who and what we do as opposed to our more formal portfolio website.
Who do you recommend to follow on Twitter?
I have got to a point where I am perhaps following too many people so my fascination is now in creating lists, which are available for others to follow. It is rather like being one’s own
features editor with a dream team of reporters.
What is your favourite app?
I recently bought the MIMOA app, which is a GPS oriented modern architecture guide. I found it immensely useful for my recent holiday in Scandinavia. I get the sense that as more people contribute to this the better it will get.
What is your preferred means of communication (eg. Email, phone, face to face, text etc)?
Always face to face. I recently settled a dispute between neighbours about acoustic isolation. All it needed was a cup of coffee.
What did you last buy online?
A prawning net for the August Bank holiday on the beach in Anglesey.
PC or Mac?
Madness, I know, but PC at work and Mac at home.
Guilty pleasures: Most played tunes from iTunes/Spotify?
Space Face by Sub Sub. A classic track from the university studios in the early nineties.
