Things that I like, read or use.
Various sites that I like to read to stay informed on developments in technology. More slanted towards business than consumer reviews.
- Entrepreneur Country - a UK-based community aimed at educating and supporting founders of small and medium enterprises.
- Both Sides of the Table - the blog of Mark Suster, former repeat business founder turned VC. Great analysis of the tech VC industry, viewed from both perspectives.
- Digitopoly - a blog run by Professors Erik Brynjolfsson, Joshua Gans and Shane Greenstein, analysing developments in online businesses with a particular focus on issues for competition and for generators of content.
Sites related to some of the projects that I have worked on in my off-time.
- Tiny Tiny RSS - when Google announced that it was discontinuing Reader, I went looking for an RSS solution that would sync between browser (I can't install software or browser extensions in my work environment) and mobile. TTRSS is a brilliant solution - the community can be a little bit thorny, but with a real depth of knowledge.
- OSMC - a fork of XBMC designed specifically for the Raspberry Pi. Which is, granted, the most boring thing to do with a Pi, but still. I hope to do more with it in the future!
- Audacity - for Christmas 2012, we decided to record a CD for our kids with their family and friends reading the narration and characters' voices in their favourite stories. This free software enabled me to stitch together files recorded on various different setups, from professional-grade recording equipment to the built-in mic on an office desktop, into coherent stories. The kids still love the CDs!
