Noel’s Day 3 Diary at Innovate UK 2013

Post Image

After 2 days of lateness I finally got my act together and arrived on time to Wednesday at Innovate UK 2013. I once again laid siege to the free hot drinks and made my way to my first talk of the day which was on crowd funding.   OXGEOS is really interested in crowd funding. more »

Noel’s Day 2 Diary at Innovate UK 2013

Post Image

I arrived at the second day of Innovate UK far later than I had planned or expected. Why? Because of “severe weather conditions” that had caused all sorts of delays to a wide range of public transport. What are “severe weather conditions?” Temperatures slightly above freezing and the lightest scattering of snow fall. My journey more »

Noel’s Day 1 Diary at Innovate UK 2013

Post Image

My first memory of Innovate UK 2013 isn’t the happiest. I’m outside the Business Design Centre in London being bombarded by a light but irritating snow shower waiting to be registered. My inability to read a weather forecast means that I’m cold. However after a surprisingly short wait I’m inside the building and swooping unashamedly at the free tea to warm me up. more »

The Spirit of the Long Tail (ii)

Post Image

Last week this blog revealed one of the hottest stories to emerge in this millennium. That’s right, Zooey Deschanel “will never ever like sweet tomato sauce. NEVER!”     92 people stood up and bravely put their reputations on the line by retweeting. Another 35 people paid tribute to this noble and worthy cause by making it a more »

We are in an age of instant information. The population of planet Earth stands at over 7 billion people, the majority of whom are connected with one another via Sir Tim Benners-Lee’s gift to humanity, the world wide web. This means that if something happens, no matter how significant or insignificant, everyone has a huge more »

Don’t Fear, NephoScale is Here!

Post Image

When Roy Azoulay, the ISIS Incubator manager, met the OXGEOS team to tell us what NephoScale were doing for technology startups such as our own, the timing could not have been better.   “The last thing you want to be doing [when launching a startup] is worrying about your compute and storage infrastructure when you could be writing code more »

Progress

Post Image

As I’ve said recently on this blog, OXGEOS has been working hard to develop a working product as soon as we possibly can. Using the feedback we’ve got from our friends at St. Hugh’s College Football Club, we’ve made some changes to the look and feel of our apps. We are still developing hard at the moment but I can more »

OXGEOS at Silicon Valley Comes To Oxford 2012: Noel’s Perspective

Post Image

Over Sunday and Monday, The Bearded Wonder and I attended Silicon Valley Comes to Oxford 2012 (SVCO 2012). I could explain what SVCO is but instead I’m going to steal a statement directly from their website because that’s a lot easier and I’m feeling lazy.   “For the last 11 years, Oxford has brought prominent more »

A Hearty Update

Post Image

I realise that a reasonably long time has passed since I last blogged about the engagement of St. Hugh’s and St. Anne’s. This is the result of two factors. One, the OXGEOS team has been incredibly busy. We only have three core team members and that means there is always something pressing to do. Two, more »
