So what happened at the Honda hack days back in November?

A good question, that isn’t easy to answer as there was so much going on. Basically, most of Honda’s Cultural Engineers (I am one) gathered for the first time face-to-face, together with a bunch of application developers to see what would happen. Three videos have just been released on The Guardian website which capture the […]

ColaLife Reception | Last call for registrations

Image derived from photo by CogDogBlog Before I make this call, I need to apologise to our Jewish friends for inadvertently holding the ColaLife Reception on the first night of Hanukkah.
