At Tuesday's Creative Scotland quarterly meeting there was a definite vibe (and a question from the audience) that led me to feel that large parts of the creative industries still feel that having to think about making money at the outset of one's idea is an incompatible requirement with, well, being creative. I'd disagree.
With 4iP we're finding that thinking of how… Continue
I know it's all about the all new exciting, Innovation Funds and start up funds and gitial funds now...but just a reminder that the Scottish Arts Council continues to offer both deadline and fast-track funding schemes across artforms to Individuals and organisations.
The nextdeadline for funding is 13 July and of course I want to promote the music schemes as well as those of all the other departments:…
(First Published at SquareGo) With Marvel and the film business having another stab at making a decent Hulk movie, it was inevitable that a game tie-in was on the cards, and refreshingly (unlike the recent Iron Man game), The Incredible Hulk aint half bad. It’s a confusing mess at times and has some serious issues, but it’s a sandbox orgy of destruction that serves up enough fun to keep it’s core… Continue

So, its the end of Day 1 at the first Scottish Social Innovation Camp. The idea is to take 6 back-of-the-envelope ideas, add lots of people, then try and make it happen over 48 hours. The point is to take ideas that could potentially create social change by connecting people through the web.
This is the 3rd SICamp, and this time round, the 6 ideas are:
The internet has long been a key component of technology in the travel world. Recent surveys continue to trend upwards in figures that indicate travellers are researching and booking more and more of their travel online. While traditionally the domain of the major websites offering cutthroat airline fares and all the accompaniments, today the online marketplace has expanded into many offerings. The question often asked, though, is: can social media make an impact on travel and… Continue
The Great Apostrophes Debate
I've posted this following a minor (and really good childish) dispute with a colleague. Warning: Lots of alcohol isn't always a good thing.
The rules concerning the use of Apostrophes in written English are very simple:
1. They are used to denote a missing letter or letters, for example:
- I can't instead of I cannot
- I don't instead of I do not
- it's instead of it… Continue
If I had been able to confine this article to simply 140 characters, than I would have, and the end of this sentence would testify to this.
The power of words has never been more important than during this past week. The Iranian government’s decision to censor media reports, to sever Internet connections, to block texting and international calls and to cut access to social networking sites backfired completely. These steps were meant to make a strong statement that all was well and… Continue
As a member of a company of one, it is hard to keep track of all the things that need doing to start a business online.
For the last few months I have been working on a new product called the "Snappy Birthday Game" . The game itself, is not cutting edge and the code is very simple, but it makes a good replacement for the usual birthday card and a copy can be sent to any email address. When the recipient completes 25 snaps they see the birthday message.
I have finally managed to get… Continue
