One of my passion projects is organising and hosting IoT events such as meetups, hardware hackathons, and conferences in Edinburgh and London. As an entrepreneur I also start businesses. My most recent venture is a text input and word prediction technology called Tusi, that has been designed specifically for very small touchscreens; ideal for smartwatches, interactive domestic appliances, and in-car touchscreen interfaces.

Earlier this week I attended the Commercial UAV Show, which was a two day event that took place on 20-21st October 2015 at ExCeL, London. I decided against getting a conference pass (you can check out the agenda here), because what I really enjoy about events is the opportunity to network. By meeting the exhibitors, and chatting with attendees I was able to gain a huge amount of industry knowledge within a very short time.

A few months ago a technology journalist called Andy Greenberg, a reporter who works for Wired, asked two computer experts to hack his car. Even though he was obviously aware of their intentions, he still found the experience of losing control of his vehicle very unsettling. At one point, he even had to beg them to stop!

October 21st 2015 was, I mean is, the day that Marty McFly (Michael J Fox) and Doc Brown (Christopher Lloyd) traveled to, from what was then, the year 1989. They predicted hoverboards (then | now) and Google Glass (then | now), but nowhere in the movie were self-driving DeLoreans ever mentioned. Well a group of Stanford University grads have "hacked" one of Britain's most iconic sports cars and made it drive like a total lunatic! The driverless DeLoren is even capable of drifting like a champ!

Between 2000 and 2010, Bryan and I lived a somewhat nomadic lifestyle. We moved more than fifteen times, including stays of varying lengths in three continents, six countries, three Canadian provinces, and four cities in the UK. After five wonderful years in Scotland, we’ve recently moved once again!

Whenever I go out wearing my LG Watch Urbane during the day it receives very little attention, because it looks very much like a conventional horological watch. At night, however, it's a different story. The Urbane's illuminated P-OLED fascia looks so good it turns heads.
