The interwebs is, like… amazing!

Seriously. I never stop being amazed. Before I tell you this story you have to remember that I have no technical skills in the coding department (I can just about make some text bold in HTML), but I’m a relatively heavy user of the internet and I like to think I’m pretty quick at picking […]

We live in incredible times

Ignite!

Well, in an attempt to re-ignite my blogging (I’ve honestly been sooo busy of late) I’m going to talk about Ignite. It’s a “constrained presentation” format, much like Pecha Kucha.

Working environments

Well, our first Pollen event was a big success. Over 50 people turned up and drank the free drinks* at City Canteen and Bar. It was really cool to see everyone having a bit of a laugh and chatting. I never intended for it to become a serious networking event, and I’m glad that it […]
