The 'mo money auction - please read and share.

At +Red Ant  a team of us are again participating in Movember (http://bit.ly/1dN7NGY ), to raise money for mens health charities. To make things a little more interesting this year rather than request donations the final style of my 'mo is up for auction, you want a Lemmy you got it, shave off one half you got it, go for the gingo you've got it. And I have to wear it for the final week of the month.

Only rules are it has to be a moustache and it cannot be insulting (to anyone but me). The auction will be a sealed bid auction sent either via email or PM with the cut off date being 6pm on Sunday 24th November; groups of people are allowed if you want to jump in on a good idea. 

So please join in and have a little fun thinking about all the cruel styles you could request, share to allow others to participate and if you're feeling particularly generous then the team page is: http://bit.ly/1dN7NGY with instructions on how to donate.

Some pretty detailed stuff there. Some of it made me smile. I am in touch with two very influential bloggers in the health & fitness industry and a lot of the complaints is what they whine about too.

Story
Tagline
CIO of Red Ant
Introduction
I have been working with and developing for the web since summer 1994, not quite the commercial beginning, but not far off. Since those days I have held a number of different positions and worked with a number of different companies and brands; mainly in and around he Internet and the web, but a few that fall into more general IT.

Brands that I have worked with (build or digital strategy or other), include: The AA, ADT, Airfix, Andrex, Barclays, Borders, British Gas, Cattles, Designers Guild, DLA Piper, Filofax, The FT, Goldfish, Lonely Planet, MHRA, MTV, Scalextric, Sony, Symantec, Volkswagen and more.

Although not so much at present the time spent at the technical coalface I believe has allowed me to see solutions both end to end and to drill down into the detail as required. I’m as comfortable talking about audience engagement techniques as Generics and Linq in C#; although I enjoy best building metric models and surpassing them with the campaigns we run at Red Ant.

Since 2003 I have been Technical Director at Red Ant Design, since 2009 I’ve also been CIO of Red Ant Group. My (now slightly old and being rewritten), thoughts on digital strategy can be found on this profile or on the Red Ant site http://www.redant.com
