Jan 3 2012: Seafaring, hacking and creating worlds
Happy New Year to all of you.
This week on the podcast we have some varied places for technological innovation, from the celebrated gathering in Germany, to a seafaring alternative and architectural virtual spaces.
Thanks to both Frank and Nick who must have been exhausted by the end of the conference when I spoke to them but they also managed to do a great job of summarising the event and discussing their highlights for the year.
Of course now we are in a fresh new year, you may be thinking about launching that start up or working with our friends in Silicon Valley. Well, if you're not a US National, then working in the States when it comes to technology might be part of your considerations.
Dan Dascalescu is the company CIO explained how this would all work and how the project is already being fondly called "The Geek Boat".
Also this week I had the opportunity to talk with Sahar Fikouhi. Now, most Outriding listeners will be familiar with AR or Augmented reality. More commonly you can experience it with a smart phone app that lets you see through your camera with an overlay of data - images, animations or sometimes mapped information.
Well after that worldly and other-worldly wonder around, we're taking a break next week but soon after we'll resume a normal service into the new year.
In the meantime, I'm always around to check your messages and updates. If there is something you want to talk about or if you're working on an Outriding project, then let me know
Until next time!
