From the Etsy file entitled "Kinda Random"


I must stop looking at these emails.

The description for this work of art: “This is a more diminutive buck than usual with yearling spike antlers. He is a lovely deep green with thin cables and comes ready to hang with all the necessary hardware. He measures 16″ x 12″ x 16″ and is ready for a new home.”


Running the gauntlet


It’s been a while, but here’s today’s addition to the Christmas present list: felt and merino wool gauntlets apparently. No, I’ve no idea either….

Project Entrepreneurship (a.k.a. what I have been doing for a month)

I have just finished a month-long project in Dubai, working on the Celebration of Entrepreneurship event. The video above gives you a glimpse of the spirit of the two-day conference, but not the scale.

The tech set-up was huge, with live streaming of every session, and more than 2,500 people and almost 200 speakers. From the 14-year-old Kuwaiti iPhone app developer to some of the biggest CEOs in the Middle East / North Africa / South Asia region (and cricketer Imran Khan), it was a dynamic and exciting crowd. And it wasn’t just about creating a cool event – there were huge announcements of partnerships, investment and seed funds. All in all, a working adventure.

About as accurate as ‘Allo ‘Allo


Bofffffff. I swear the French sounded better in my head…. but, as an excuse, this was recorded in the middle of the mega event I was working on in Dubai. 

I think I may have been stitched up by Dan (@dan__kelly, if you’re interested).
