  • Blog Post: R42 New Tech - Suunto T6 Training Watch

    It seems I have a raft of "new tech" in my life to blog about, none more timely than my new Suunto T6 Training Watch . As you know I've been "changing my ways" and introducing exercise into my life (again) (-ish). Well it wasn't going to be long before I could find some techy, geeky...
  • Blog Post: Heroes Happen Launch - Take Two

    So I'm here at Melbourne with the second iteration of the Heroes Happens Launch, and if anything, I'm enjoying it more than Sydney. Last week I spent much of my time chatting to our MVP's, Usergroup Leaders and customers. And although I've been meeting heaps of people here too, I've taken the time out...
  • Blog Post: Biggest Loser Week 4

    I know, I know, I've been lax in posting my (our) progress. Apologies for that, something about access to the numbers of the team, and a set of scales whilst I was in the USA. But I'm back now, and here's how things stand. The overall team weight is currently at 804.8kg , down from a start of 832.3kg...
  • Blog Post: Anything's Possible

    Talk about inspiring!! This morning our keynote was from Michio Kaku , a Theoretical Physicist and Futurist. We looked into advances in wearable computing, from glasses, to clothes, jewellery even. In a world where the average silicon chip costs less than a penny, less than paper. The future of medicine...
  • Blog Post: True Evangelism

    I went to a session today entitled "True Evangelism." Rather than a breakout, this was a "chalk-talk." Which is to say interactive, with everyone able to give their perspective and ask their questions. We covered a lot of ground, from initiatives that various teams around the world...

  • Blog Post: Morning 1 at TechReady6

    This mornings keynote was hosted by Norm Judah , CTO for Microsoft Services; and Steve Balmer, CEO of Microsoft. Norm, resplendent in a pink shirt, was his usual clear, fun, and self-effacing self. As for Steve, the electricity and energy of the man. Considering the current negotiations around the Yahoo...

  • Blog Post: Trial by Diet

    So a couple of days ago I blogged about my intention, nay, passion to maintain my diet and exercise regime whilst here at the Academic Airlift Conference here in Seattle. I thought I'd give a little visual representation of just how difficult this is proving to be. Here is my average day, and the food...
  • Blog Post: Play Nicely Now

    I Love our generation. I Love the technology we work with, and I especially Love the Internet. One of the things I love is enabling people, connecting people. The implications of that over my career, has been to work with a heap of technologies: JCL, COBOL, Novell, WordPerfect, Windows for Workgroups...
  • Blog Post: Gb

    Or rather F#. Sorry, poor musician's joke, which doesn't translate, but Lucy my wife will get it. (she's a muso, not a geek) In my new role I've been starting to look around at dev technologies I can start playing around with again to bring me into dev conversations. There's not to many people I get...
  • Blog Post: From the ashes...

    At least that's how I felt this morning :) No, no, I didn't have too many beers last night. I did, however, have too little sleep. Yep, a function of being away at a conference, and trying to keep on top of my day job. So what have I been learning thus far? It is the Phoenix that rises from the ashes...
  • Blog Post: Early Mornings, Late Nights

    Well, here I am, in Seattle, and the weather is just as shown on TV (Gray's Anatomy), which is to say cold and wet. I am enjoying being back though. I'm finding it like seeing an old friend. There are still new experiences to enjoy, but a familiarity with the people and my surroundings not to feel alien...
  • Blog Post: Heading Out

    The time has come for our bi-annual TechReady event. This is a training conference hosted for Microsoft technical roles in Seattle. Typically each MS member gets to go to Seattle once a year, either in the Winter (now) or Summer (Jul/Aug). The conference itself is a huge event, hosted in Seattle to be...
