Quantum Leap

Recently I attended an informal talk by Dutch futurist Yuri Van Geest, the co-author of Exponential Organizations and Dutch Ambassador of the Singularity University. He talked about the disruptive impact that emerging technology and innovation would have on businesses and future job prospects. He claimed the key technological drivers of the “fourth industrial revolution”, quantum… Continue reading Quantum Leap

Metamorphosis

It’s already mid February and so much is happening in our Amiga world. I’ve just returned from a whistle-stop Amiga focused business trip to London, Cardiff, Brussels and Dublin. While I was in Belgium, thanks to Timothy de Groote the Managing Director of Hyperion Entertainment, I saw the Tabor board booting a beta version of… Continue reading Metamorphosis

When Amiga eyes are smiling!

Apologies for misquoting the lyrics to the famous Irish song but I started writing this blog in an airline lounge as I waiting for my flight to Auckland and onward to England via Los Angeles. For some strange reason I’m leaving the warmth of a Southern hemisphere New Zealand summer for the frozen winter in Europe. 😉… Continue reading When Amiga eyes are smiling!

Summer/Winter Greetings

At this time of year with mid summer fast approaching in New Zealand my Northern hemisphere imprinted brain has a difficult time coming to terms with warm weather, sunshine and Christmas.

Paul Sadlik, daytime architect and night-time beta tester extraordinaire, was driving me to Amiwest along with AmigaOS developer Tony… Continue reading Down the rabbit hole

Movie Night

I started writing this blog on my A.L.I.C.E. laptop while I was sitting in Sydney Airport waiting for my flight home to New Zealand after a short business trip to Australia. Although the visit was not Amiga related I still found time to meet up for a lunch with long-time and very active Amiga developer… Continue reading Movie Night

Super Nova

Boing Ball Vision If you are a regular reader of my blog you will know that I have a tendency to see “Boing Balls” in everyday objects. 😉 A few days prior to my recent trip to California to attend Dave Needle’s Memorial service I took part in a football practice session for the first… Continue reading Super Nova

Dave’s big farewell party

I can’t believe it’s already March 2016! Just where does the time go these days? As I write this blog I’m preparing for a whirlwind trip to California to attend Dave Needle’s memorial service and big farewell party. No doubt it will be a bittersweet event but a chance to celebrate Dave’s life and work… Continue reading Dave’s big farewell party

New Year Countdown

To celebrate the upcoming New Year festivities we commissioned EntwicklerX to create a special CANDI animated Workbench to count down the hours, minutes and seconds to New Year’s Eve wherever you are in the world. As usual Thomas and Frank have outdone themselves and the result is the Fireworks CANDI countdown theme.  All registered Workbench… Continue reading New Year Countdown
