I’ve been bad for not keeping you all up to date on dbyhundred activities so, as we wish you all a very Merry Christmas and a prosperous New Year, here’s a potted summary of our greatest achievements this year;
1) I’ve been working nearly half my time on SplashMaps! This year we made our weatherproof fabric maps go global! Yes you can now choose a fabric map of anywhere in the world thanks to OpenStreetMap and our work with their finest. We also won awards for our cartography and kudos from the International Cartographic Association.for our popular destination and bespoke maps. Got 2 minutes? Here’s what we make; http://www.splash-maps.com/splashmaps-confidence-adventure/
2) Another “almost” half of the year has been spent with HomeHalo creating the worlds most simple way of managing your kids internet use. I’ve been project manager from the start, taking the idea from concept through early prototyping now to manufacture and sales. It’s a unique combination of hardware and cloud based services and draws on all my skills for international collaborations.
3) More Market Research work has been completed for SBD Ltd. using my expertise and contacts in the connected vehicle sector. I was also very pleased to work with a new dbyhundred Ltd. star researcher for the first time on making new propositions in geo-research. Every year the connections strengthen and new sources of info are found!
4) I continue to work with the expert teams in the European Commission on a range of calls around innovation and implementation of cloud infrastructures. These are great networking opportunities for all 3 of the above as well as the work which I carry out personally and is both fascinating, rewarding and helps keeps European technology ahead of the curve.
