Things I have learned this week:
- As I start Stamp‘s European expansion, I do wonder at how easy it is currently to do business and sell my services to a client on continental Europe, and how unbelievably fucking miserable it’s going to get if we go ahead with a project that, as I saw recently put, will see an entire nation winning the Darwin Award.
- I now have a trio of short (2-4 hour) education/training programmes up my sleeve: Time To Tinker: how to get more tinkering and play into your business;
Lies, Damn Lies and Infographics: understanding what non-technical people need to know about Data
Team Players: how to build a collaborative culture.
If any of interest, do let me know.
- That WB-40 will be a whole year old on Monday. We will be celebrating with an exciting new announcement.
- With my terrible eyesight the ePassport systems installed at Heathrow and elsewhere are almost totally unusable.
