As you’ll probably notice, I’m a Geek…
Everything technological excites me, from the simplest app to the smartphone that it runs on, to the server that powers it.
I hold web technology close to my heart, after all, the internet is as old as I am.
My taste in music is as varied as the accents in Britain.
My all time favourite band is the Red Hot Chili Peppers, but you’ll often find me listening to anything from classical to hip-hop, to heavy rock.
I don’t read nearly as much as I’d like to. Since I don’t commute on the train anymore I miss my reading time.
The last book to really grab my attention was Hell’s Angel by Hunter S. Thompson.
Great ideas change the way we think about the world around us. There’s a lot of good ideas coming out if Internet startups these days.
The next big trends as far as I’m concerned are gesture control and wearable tech.

About this Blog //
Music was my first love. Then technology got in.
My blog is full of all the things I like or find useful. You'l see reviews, speculation and probably a fair measure of complaint. Enjoy. And please share if you find it useful.
The leap motion is a revolutionary gesture control system, I’ve had on pre-order since day one.
About a week ago Leap Motion announced some good news. They’ve got a date to begin shipping!
Back in November I spent a month without my wallet, relying on mobile and contactless payments.
During that month there was one app that stood out, changing the way I thought about payments. Birmingham based Droplet, having only been in beta for a month at the time, saved my life.
Its been a while hasn’t it. You’ll have to excuse the gap, I some time as the majority of regent grads do, unemployed.
Well, that’s not strictly true, I was unemployed for little over a week. I was, however doing menial work completely unrelated to my plethora of skills and abilities. I was doing data entry work.
