Has Google done it? Check the Goollery

It's a disappointing truth that many of the ideas we get at 4iP have been done before. A two minute noodle around your favourite search engine would reveal your potential competitors and either prevent you spending an afternoon on a pitch that'll go nowhere, or thrust you into a niche that's a sure winner (well, maybe).



I'm convinced, too, that Google's algorithms regularly seek out development producers and coders as they look for similar products to… Continue

On Great Software

My background (a rather perverse mix of chemical engineering and psychology, with some project management thrown in) has meant that I've only ever programmed a computer twice. The first time was as part of my undergraduate dissertation (mathematical models of gas phase distibutions). It was in Fortran, it was full of numbers and it was fun. The second occasion was as part of a late night, last minute change to pricing routines as part of a SAP implementation in Sweden. It wasn't as interesting… Continue
