The idea, as a speaker, is to provide 'perspective and provocation.  I can do that.

However, I'm canvassing opinion and input on the issues which YOU guys think are important and what you think the role of CS should be within the increasingly converged creative industries here in Scotland…

There Is No Such Thing As An Atheist In A Manhole

Professor Ed Glaeser is a world respected academic. His passion is the city, how it

works. For him, the city is the ultimate creation of human ingeneuity. The

fascination is how something so complex can form and keep working: the Triumph of

the City. Glaeser suggests that the heart of this fascination relates to two issues:

creativity and the economy.

Glaeser is an economist. At the Edinburgh International Book Festival 2010, he

suggested that no economy is the…

You know that multi award winning iPhone app we made? Well, we sold it.

Yes, it's true. We've sold SprintGPS Fitness Tracking to US fitness company Peaksware. Whilst we're a little sad to see it go, this project has been a real success story. It was our first app after all and we built it in-house entirely from scratch. It was our response to the new global opportunities for sales via the App Store and our chance to lead the…

EIFF: clipped wings increases span of programme

EIFF logo It's good to see the Edinburgh International Film Festival jettison its strained efforts to "keep up with the Cannes-es". Reduced funding this year has clipped the Film Festival's wings in terms of the amount of high profile stars appearing for red carpet premieres. But the clipped wings… Continue

Beware of SDN (Sheep in Digital Nitwear)

If you don’t know, the SDN stands for the Scottish Digital Network. When you hear the people, who are supposed to know, explain the concept it is still hard to understand. I am Scottish, I understand Digital and I get Network. But, it transpires that what we’re actually getting with an SDN is a SHINY NEW BROADCAST TELEVISION CHANNEL with some subsidiary web based stuff.

Video Gamer takes on The Elite and The Powerful ... and loses ...

RIP Scottish Games - Fall 2010. Like General Patton, I was there. Where? I was there when Scotland burst onto the video games industry scene as a major player with Lemmings, I played GTA before it was launched, saw Hedz crash and burn, witnessed the rise and fall of Red Lemon, Visual Science, DMA and many others. An industry from Alpha to Omega; beginning and end.



Around the time I am writing and you are reading, major… Continue
