Microsoft Wave launched

Microsoft Wave is a cool new site from our UK team that is something we’ve long been without – a cool site that isn’t trying to sell anything, simply showing the breadth of cool technology that Microsoft is involved in. It’s very much in the spirit of Blue Monster so I was delighted to see…

Blue Monster Cube Grenades

‘Cross The Breeze

My pal Kris Hoet just posted this great presentation – full of beautiful images and great quotes. I wish I’d created it…but will just have to shamelessly steal from him for my next preso 🙂 As with all good presentations, the slides on their own are not very informative – they require the presenter to…

Two Smarts Guys Do Ten Questions
