How Server Management Is Exactly Like Football (Sort of)

Servers are like football players. If you only have one, your team is not going to do well: you need strength in depth and breadth if you’re to weather the whole match. And each player might be better in one area than another: speed or defence, complex play or stone-cold reliability. It has been said […]

What are you doing, Dave? How AI can help.

Artificial intelligence seems to many less an issue for business and more for science fiction writers. There’s HAL 9000, anxiously asking Dave what he’s doing in 2001: A Space Odyssey. There are the robot overlords of The Matrix, overtaking humans in intelligence and using them as their batteries. It’s worth saying that the wildest fears […]

How Keeping Up With Technological Change Is Like War & Peace

There was a scene in the recent BBC adaptation of Leo Tolstoy’s novel of Napoleonic derring-do, War and Peace, which emphasised the dangers of straggling.

Why Affording An Agency Website Is Like Eating Cake

I realized the other day that I’ve been spending a lot of time at networking events in recent weeks. This is not just because it’s a great way of scoring free cake (hardly a networking event in the country now does not supply afternoon tea as standard, I can only-slightly-smugly report).

Mobile-First Design: Why Remembering Mobile Is Like Putting On Trousers

We’re all familiar with the concept of optional extras: additional cup holders in your car, or ‘accent stitching’ on that custom-made suit. But you wouldn’t buy a new motor without an engine, and you wouldn’t slip on a new three-piece that didn’t come with trousers. Those are just the basics. But why is it often […]

Brazil Predictor: Football Without Formulas

With the World Cup rapidly approaching, everyone wants to work out who’s going to win. Nothing could be easier: Or at least, that’s how Stephen Hawking, world-famous physicist and former Lucasian Professor of Mathematics at the University of Cambridge, would work it out.

How Our New App Makes Google Reviews Work For You

“If you don’t have anything nice to say, don’t say anything at all.” The internet was never told this by its mother: instead, it offers users every opportunity to let the world know what they think on every conceivable topic, often vocally and negatively. This poses real challenges to businesses: somewhere on the internet, it’s […]
