I’ve got used to hearing the statement “We’d get rid of that building but it isn’t worth anything”. My reaction is always the same: “I’ll take it then”.

Just a quick post to say to all you iPad owners out there, that my new app Paint Sapien has just been released on the app store.
It's a paint simulation app, meaning that the "paint "pigments interact, truly mix and blend with each other. Also sports a cool pressure sensitivity feature using the iPad camera.

Sometimes I get interviewed by journalists. No matter how carefully you choose your words the feeling persists that in amongst those seemingly reasonable answers to seemingly reasonable questions you have offered an unfortunate quote out of context.
So the choice is simple. Say nothing…Continue

This week I've been trying to get the work out about a workshop entitled "Open Source, Geo and Health" (#gecohealth) which will take place at Edinburgh Napier University on 9th August 2011.
I think this may be of interest to 38Minutes folk with interest in mapping, social innovation, health, open source and similar areas.
The event is free to attend (and catered!) and we have some super presentations and hands on workshops already lined up - you can find full info on the…Continue

Well since the rest of the UK is gleefully heaping scorn upon the News of the World I feel it would be remiss of me not to do that very British thing of hopping onto the proverbial bandwagon. And I'm even cheeky enough to simultaneously criticise their journalism and steal their…Continue

I note similar namesake 38degrees is running a petition against the impending BSkyB takeover by a Mr R. Murdoch, in the light of the recent phone hacking scandals.
As free thinking media independents I thought it might be interesting to draw your attention to it. 50,000 signatures and rising.
