Pretty soon I’ll be giving up my daily Leamington Spa to London commute (more on that in a later blog post), so I thought I’d share this picture I took at the station this morning to show that it does have some nice moments.
On a recent trip to London my girlfriend and I visited the Saatchi Gallery (superb gallery, you must go if you’re in the area), where I was mesmerised by a piece in their store called “The Clock Clock” by humans since 1982. Check out this video of it, it’s amazing. I thought that it would make a really cool little HTML5 experiment, so I gave it a go.You can view it here, but you’d do well to fire up the latest version of Chrome, Safari or Firefox first.
I’ve reached out to humans since 1982 to see what they think of it, but haven’t heard anything back yet.
It was announced last week that the company I work for, thrudigital, had been acquired by idio, a company we’d had a close relationship with for some time. As a result, I, along with the rest of thrudigital, will be joining the idio development team as their “London office”. Primarily, my work for idio will focus on their platform, which deals with content aggregation, analytics, personalisation and distribution, and making improvements to help it scale. Very exciting stuff, so look out for some scalability related topics on here in the near future!
