Developer trouble….

I was chatting to a friend from America recently about the problems I’ve had over the last couple of years with web developers. I’ve worked with a couple who’ve both let me down really badly and put me back to square one with my web-based startup. Admittedly much of this was my own fault for […]

The Demise Of Facebook…

Of course Facebook isn’t facing demise. That would be ridiculous. But for the first time since their launch their audience number in the UK has dropped. While they’re still hitting a staggering 8.5m unique visitors a month, this might be the first sign that there might be a saturation of the market. I know I’m […]

Ticket Touts, Microsoft, China and Digital Nomads

* “Concert promoters have joined performing artists’ managers in their battle to get secondary ticketing companies to pay a levy from the profits they make on live shows”, says an article on FT.com.

I’m addicted!

I took a look at my wardrobe a few months ago and realised the vast majority of the t-shirts I owned were freebies from clubs and events around the world where we’d played. As a result they were mainly black with white print and slightly on the baggy side (or very baggy if they’d come […]

The future of the music industry

A great article/interview with Thom Yorke of Radiohead and David Byrne (formerly of Talking Heads and all round world-music-dabbler extraordinaire). I’ll let the article speak for itself.

Blimey…

It’s been nearly a month since my last blog. I’ve just been so flippin’ busy I’ve barely had a chance to think about blogging. So, just as a recap (for myself as much as anything!) I’ve been…(deep breath)… – Graduating from the Insight Out training course. – Writing my first article for Enterprise Magazine. – […]

The "E" Word…

I really don’t like using the word “entrepreneur”. But I can’t think of any other words that accurately sum up what I do. I’m currently working on a handful of projects, across several fields, and I don’t have a “day job”. And so when someone asks me what I do I have choice of either […]
