You had one job, Amazon Prime caption writer....
 
We're guessing Amazon Prime caption writers aren't big comic book fans

There's a scientist i know in Canada who has discovered an interesting effect in generators/alternators, when the coils are wound a certain way and running at the right RPM, it looks like it may hugely extend battery charge.

I'm no expert on typography, but the new, more readable, Bookerly font might be enough reason to spring for a new Kindle at the end of the month...

I'm looking forward to the way technology is going to cause neighbourly arguments in the future http://danthornton.net/2015/05/a-new-era-of-bad-neighbour-disputes/
Life will change as neighbours end up arguing over radio frequencies for wifi and autonomous robot lawnmowers...

Story
Tagline
Digital Content and Marketing Consultant ( TheWayoftheWeb.net), Founded hotmodmedia.com and #DPiP geek meetups
Introduction
Runs Digital Content and Marketing Consultancy TheWayoftheWeb, and a niche publishing project at Hot Mod Media, including

With over 10 years experience in journalism and marketing, TheWayoftheWeb can consult and create digital and mobile content and marketing strategies, manage search engine optimisation (natural and paid), social media, and editorial, and create bespoke content for your site and social media campaigns.

Jodanma combines experienced developers and designers with detailed knowledge of what is required for an effective digital presence for businesses, whether you're looking to sell products, services, or monetise your content. By partnering with TheWayoftheWeb, we can build exactly what you need to increase your revenues and ensure it does the job when it comes to marketing and converting visitors to new business.

Finally OnlineRaceDriver, FPSPrestige and other website projects allow me to demonstrate how to build successful web properties and experiment with new and innovative ideas which can then be used on client websites, apps and projects.

Dan Thornton background:

I spent 7 years as a journalist and web producer on Motorcycle News (www.motorcyclenews.com) contributing to both print and digital publications, and with a focus on the online proposition. My responsibilities included managing the digital team, ensuring a content plan was fulfilled, managing the community aspects of the site and creating and maintaining a large products database.

I then became Community Marketing Manager across Bauer Media's portfolio (FHM, Heat, Empire, Zoo, etc), looking at both the onsite community functionality and engagement, and how to best interact with external communities.

Most recently I was the first Digital Marketing Manager at Absolute Radio, responsible for digital strategy, social media marketing, paid and natural search, and mobile.

I'm a huge advocate for new technology, particularly around microblogging and microsharing - you can generally find me on new startups and existing social networks as 'badgergravling'. I'm also hugely interested in future trending, and finding ways to best use new technology and applications from a business perspective.
Bragging rights
Around 1.5 million mobile app downloads whilst at Absolute Radio, Introduced Heat, Empire, MCN etc to social media at Bauer. Currently reach over 20,000 readers every month on my own sites

Good food, pretty good service (Always picked up my takeaway order), and not too pricey.

Great selection of Thai food and mixture of decent local beers. Relaxed during the day and a bit more hectic during the evening, you can't go wrong with the selection of Oakham Ales available.
