Blunders : A badly executed new website launch and a definite image blunder from the National Lottery

by Will Corry on August 31, 2014

Silicon Cities: An infographic map of UK’s clusters

by Will Corry on August 24, 2014

A new report from Policy Exchange says that Britain is already benefitting from the growth of technology firms with 1.2million people employed in the sector. The technology sector also received more equity investment than any other sector over the past three years. However, the fruits of this success are predominantly being felt in and around London and the South East.

A recent study showed that the concentration of tech employment in the South East is greater than the national average in as many as 47 out of 66 local authorities, with Wokingham having more than five times the national proportion of technology workers.

In London alone, 21 out of 33 local authorities have a higher proportion of workers employed in technology related roles than the national average.

Between 2009 and 2012, 27% of all new jobs in London can be attributed to the technology sector and there are now an estimated 34,000 tech businesses in the Capital.

Video : “A disastrous day turns into the most fun wedding I’ve ever seen” / Hurricane Bertha wedding photos

by Will Corry on August 12, 2014

You have to see these hurricane Bertha wedding photos. A real fun wedding in the end.
When Katy Lomas, 28, and Richard Owen, 34, booked their wedding at Wentworth Castle in Barnsley,  they imagined an outdoor wedding with tons of greenery. Instead, the tail end of hurricane Bertha poured torrential rain on their tents, forcing them to move the festivities indoors and soaking, well, just about everything.

Photographer Jon Dennis captured the couple joyfully turning what could have been a disastrous day into what looks like the most fun wedding I've ever seen.
