Insightful Debate


It’s incredible to think of the difference data analysis is making to our world. I was reminded of this while following the first debate between US presidential hopefuls Trump and Clinton on the news this week. Similar to methods used in the British elections, news channels were able to quickly gather stats on who they thought had ‘won’ the debate. They looked at how their messages were received by viewers and how often they were...

Women Do Tech!


Should female technologists be celebrated? I think so! One of our team members spoke yesterday at a national event in Knutsford, organised to showcase female technology talent and next month we’re hosting a Girls in Tech event by Clicky Media to give young women interested in tech and digital careers an opportunity to sign up to workshops and network. These events are important, not because women in tech are currently a rare species or because...

Community Spirit


Should innovation and growth come at the cost of others? I ask this because I was angered recently when I read about landlords in Silicon Valley evicting communities from their homes to attract high-income tenants from top tech firms. As Facebook plans a large campus expansion nearby to create a ‘new hub for tech employment’, it emerged that many residents in local buildings are being made to move to make room for these young tech...

Thank You From Team UKFast


This week has been a little bit more special than others over at UKFast because it’s our 17-year anniversary. And I have a confession to make. I promised to publish Lawrence’s blog for him today but, in fact, I’ve taken over it and he has no idea! Having been on an unbelievable journey throughout the 17 years of UKFast, I thought it was only right that the UKFast team take over Lawrence’s blog today to...

Cucumber Time


Finally summer silly season is over and autumn is here. Time to get back into the swing of things, build momentum and drive towards the end of the year. In the Netherlands, they call summer period Cucumber Time. There are no real explanations for why it’s called this but many assume that it’s simply because there’s nothing else in the news other than people growing the biggest cucumbers! Whilst summer is a great time to...
