Time to call on my network of friends and colleagues:

I am currently seeking clients who would like to employ my services to build websites for them; and as I grow my business I am also available for short-term or part-time work in software development, writing or other areas (working remotely or based in the North East).

If you know of anyone who could benefit from my 15+ years software experience, please let me know or share this status with them. Thanks!

Email address:

Had a very successful WeReddit episode recording with +Dean Upton  and our special guest presenter +Stéfanie V.  tonight. (Also, our first time using Google Hangouts!)

It's in post production and will be out shortly but in the meantime why not catch up on the previous episode "Bitcoin, Bankrobbers and Billionaires"

This may just be the most thought-provoking article I've read this year, and one which I find it hard to disagree with. A lot of its points apply to social media too.

I find this story absolutely fascinating on many levels. Over half a millennium ago, the last king of the Middle Ages died in battle, ending the War of the Roses and the Middle Ages. Last year, after a bit of digging under a car park in Leicester and a DNA check against Canadian carpenter Michael Ibsen - a direct descendent of Richard III - confirmed that the skeleton was indeed that of Richard III. And now they can reconstruct his final moments of defeat and painful torture by examining the damage to the skeleton.

Now THAT'S history in the making. :-)

Have you ever considered the ethics of dumpster diving? What do you think someone from the 1950s would think of our world today? Should Minecraft be used in schools?
