About this place

You’ve reached the blog of Gilbert West.

It’s a place where I keep all my drafts and occasionally publish articles, mostly about making things on the web and living in the network age.

It’s called “Did You Mean?” because I vividly remember the first time Google corrected me as I guessed at a street name while searching for a local vetrinary surgery. That simple phrase, “Did you mean” signalled a shift in the way we would discover things.

There’s nobody here right now, but I¬†was last seen up here.
