This week we speak to Brenda Wallace (“I’m a rails dev, but don’t tell my friends”). Brenda got her first computer at 1 (year old) so she has grown up with computers all her life (just like a millennial). We talk about tinkering with home automation, open source, Y2K, mobile language, hacking and working at Catalyst, Weta and Rabid. We also chat about a new acquisition at Rabid called OSH Park, wearable tech and its applications.

PARTAY! Yip, we are having a party – well, we are co-hosting a party alongside the fine folks from Hack Miramar and the community over at Geekzone. It’s going to be a cracking evening on Friday 4th December! There will be live music, beer, prizes and only 100 people – so get over to our blog, Jiber Jaber for the Lil Reggie link to get your FREE ticket.

We cover tech, social media, startups and upstarts with a bit of marketing thrown in.

Mike’s background is explaining stuff, connecting people and getting things done. Raj’s background is in film, design, media and making things happen.
