Fon = Free Wifi = Free Router 1st Birthday Deal!
I've been keeping an eye on Fon, the wireless networking company who are building up an open access wifi network. It's a great idea and one that I am interested in seeing work around the UK. As it is Fon's first birthday they are offering free Foneria wifi routers to the first 2500 people who sign up for it. The offer is open til the end of March. I've just ordered my one! Totally free and makes so much sense! To access the deal go to their website here! (the uk link is at the bottom of the page... ......

Vecosys - For European Start-Ups

Well after all the trouble over TechCrunch UK Sam Sethi and Mike Butcher have moved on and started blogging on Vecosys!  The site focuses on European Start Up's and I think they will be all set for 2007! 

I wish Mike and Sam the very best of luck with their latest venture and I look forward to seeing how the site and the start ups in the uk grow over the years!

TechCrunch UK - On Hold?!
So a friend pointed me to CrunchNotes today and it looks like Sam Sethi has quit TechCrunch UK over a disagreement regarding Le Web 3 comments. Having not been at Le Web I can't say much about the event, but I can say that on this occasion Sam may have needed to be a little more diplomatic, I guess at the end of the day Mike and Sam will go in their own seperate directions. The question now is what will happen to TechCrunchUK in the long term? Will it just disolve and something different take it's ......

So were the female speakers really better than the male ones at DDD4?
I was reading Simon Middlemiss' blog post on his experience of the developer day talks, and it made me smile. In short he found that the three talks by the only three female speakers stood out to him better than the other 2 by the guys. I am just wondering whether the girls are beginning to get better at tech talk or whether they are finally getting the recognition they deserve! Either way it's all good! On my side I am slowly getting to feel more comfortable talking on technical subjects, but I ......

DDD4: A quick overview
Well I was at DDD4 and it was a fun day! There was a little last minute preperation the night before, just polishing off the slides and placing all the links in them. It's just a shame that the Microsoft internet let me down. I ended up talking for an entire hour about web 2.0 technologies for business rather than being able to show the full power of what you can do with them. All the same I think it went well under the circumstances, and I don't think I totally fluffed it. At least the feedback ......

All set for DDD4
Well the 4th Developer Day is all ready to occur next saturday and I've just finished putting my slides together! I'm actually quite excited about giving this presentation as it's a subject area that I find really quite interesting and exciting. I've got to see how new media technologies can transform businesses before and it's going to be interesting to see how people react to the ideas put forward in the presentation. What I am anticipating is skepticism and a lot of questions. I'll post the slides ......

A new blog just for the girly geeks
It was pointed out to me that my "mobile blog" has a lot of "girl geek" stuff on it and is becoming interlaced... as such a friend suggested that I should have an additional blog just for the girl geek stuff. Well I sat and thought about it this evening and it does make a lot of sense. I am hoping that it won't stop as many people hearing about the girl geek stuff and this is my only concern with splitting them apart as 2 seperate blog sites. For now however the new site is Girly Geekdom and for ......

Last month they launched their first product Zindoo. ”Zinadoo is targeted at the average individual/organisation and doesn't require any programming skills. There are also many text based services around the site which users can customise to meet their needs and ......
