My team are after a full-stack web developer (a Swiss-army-knife of a coder). Based in Cambridge, and we are friendly.

How do you manage contacts on your Mac? The straightforward way, is to use Address Book to keep a set of contacts updated, and this works well for providing other apps with contact info.

However, there are often times when I want to group people into lists (threads, conversation groups, distribution lists.. whatever). Mainly for a quick task of pinging a set of people, but not another, very quickly. If I set myself a task to contact "People interested in foo," then I currently retrace my way through the conversation thread in Mail, and copy people into a blank message.

There must be a better way, surely? Like a local CRM, but simpler, quicker and... well, less Salesforcey, if I'm honest.

If you use Gmail the contact app lets you use groups. When you need to email them just type the group name in the To: field.

Not sure what to think: 

* Cycling can be excellent. 
* Cycling can be dangerous. 

Those 2 things are not mutually exclusive, are they? Cycling and driving are both dangerous things to do. But we should do more of the former, and do the latter better. So, campaigning for cycling shouldn't ignore the fact that despite the good idea that cycling is, and alongside its benefits to the environment, health and impact on waistline; it isn't as safe as picking flowers. http://buff.ly/XpaSYC

We recently had a Q&A with one of our backers - who was kind enough to let us ramble on for figurative pages.

Check out his writeup below!

Introduction
I am a writer and content strategist who likes to help people tell their stories. I came from the world of the web—writing here and there on places like ReadWriteWeb and ZDNet—and spent a few years as a community person at Talis for the emerging technology community of the Semantic Web.

I blog, flick, tweet, and undertake other webby verbs.
