I love Thursdays, I love all days really; there’s always something happening to make you smile! Yesterday was no exception, after a good day’s graft (I must blog about this contract soon) I popped over to the Codeworks Ignite event to have my neurons tickled and tickled they were!
The first speaker Tristan Watson (a beautiful soul) talked about how an idea is only important once it’s been acted on and to my mega joy he used one of my sideprojects as an example!!!
he was so kind about it I did a little blush!
We then watched Dan Gilmore talk about immersive technologies, a new face to me but so passionate! Love it! He sparked the memory of a thought I had as a child; "what would swapping sensory inputs feel like?" - if there’s another Ignite event I may ask to talk about this cause it’s such a giggle of a thought experiment.
Let the truncation begin - I should be working!!
- We heard about finances from Jonathan Gold
I noted that I need to talk to him about a concept business plan with a super-short-term exit strategy
- Peter Hirst talked about hidden gems and easter eggs in technology
Sparked another weekend tinkering of an idea, maybe next month ;-)
- Dan Kolodziej (pronounced ko-lod-gee) went on a MEGA-TANGENT starting with shoes, onto Wi-Fi, cruised through Africa, financial institutions, and back to shoes again. DAN’S SHOES that is.
Reminded me of frontline SMS - must see how that’s evolving soon
- David Erasmus (what a name!!) showed us some heart-warming holiday snaps then asked us about the nature of openness and friendship and why things happen the way they do
I wrote - must buy a school bus
I had to cut the event short cause to cycle home and make SUSHI!!!! Yes.
I didn’t get a shot of everyone; there was no incentive to move away from the food. That’s just dumb. That last sushi was named "the loneliest maki", we proceeded to make it some “friends” then eat them too. We all had to lie down and ride it out cause we made soooo much!
Don’t forget kids, every night is food night
