About Me

After having a presence on the web since the early Compuserve days (that must be over 20 years ago!) and also securing this domain name, which I’m now starting to feel quite precious about, I decided I would load a blog onto my web space. WordPress seems to be on everyone’s lips these days so I thought I would load it here for two purposes – a) try out WordPress, and b) start my own blog!

I don’t really have a lot to say as I tend to ‘think’ more but I am incredibly engulfed with technology (to my wife’s frustration!) and although I don’t believe my thoughts have ANY influence, some people (mainly paid friends!) rely on my knowledge and advice! So I think I’ll post some thoughts here over time about things in the technology world, including some theory and process info!

I have worked in online, digital technology for a loooong time, before it was as slick as it is today!
I worked for BT Broadcast Services for a while and ran their New Media team which consisted of tapeless playout of Sky TV channels, worked the BBC on their at-the-time new feature-rich websites and then onto iPlayer in the early days. I then worked in a different industry of ‘experiential marketing with Jack Morton Worldwide, looking after all of their digital media delivery. Finally, I became a director for a small online business in Brighton delivering democratic solutions to the public sector – very boring stuff actually but working with all the technical departments and getting them into a ‘grown up’ state to enable them to work more efficiently was good fun. I know those guys are better prepared for the future now after my tenure with the business, if others just didn’t appreciate my efforts.

I now run my own business looking at 4 areas –  mobile and tablet repairs (iPhones, iPads, Smartphones, etc) computer support, web solutions and IT consultancy. It’s called Jock IT.

Don’t expect a lot here – I don’t post a lot, but when I do, I hope it’s worth the wait!
