  1. Skills Matter

    Opening July 2015, “CodeNode, our new 23,000 sqft Tech Events and Community venue”. Looks nice, and big. On South Place, just west of Liverpool Street station. That City / “Tech City” border is getting very blurry. (via @tomstuart)

    @tomstuart @whoisdanw We should have a rota for these things.

    @blech I meant that @infraclub might argue with "no one wants to hang out at their power company", not whether Google's a utility.

    Expecting a disagreement from @infraclub any moment… twitter.com/tomcoates/stat…

    Fundamentally, Google is a utility. No one wants to hang out at their power company.

    “One reason Apple and Google survived was because they were bad at ‘social’ – they weren’t tied to one cohort. Remember Facebook? Twitter?”

    @BBHLabs Not really, sorry. It must be difficult trying to find a kind of person you find impossible to describe :)

    @BBHLabs OK but what is “a retrofuturist”? Someone who wears a silver jumpsuit? Or wishes the present was like that?Or only writes about it?

    @BBHLabs I have no idea what a retrofuturist is, but I was a futurist 15 years ago, and so I claim my first prize.

    @tomstuart If only all organisations were as forward-thinking.

    @tomstuart Looks like an impressive place! And not just because I can get there really easily.
