Barcamp Not For Profit Oxford

On Saturday 20th Nov I spent the best part of the day at Barcamp Non-Profits (NFP) at the Oxford University Club. This was my first Barcamp, so I was interested to see how the event and it’s organisation was to unfold. For the uninitiated a Barcamp, often called an unconference, is as the name would [...]

Well, not quite, but it was good to check that our site worked without problems on Apple‘s latest offering :-) I took a mini-break to New York last week, and had the chance to pop into the Apple store on 5th Avenue (I love how awesome that sounds). Obviously then I had to try out [...]

Movember day 30 – the last day

Movember day 25

We’re within a whisker of the finish now. Here come the bros: I can’t speak for the other chaps, but mine feels like its stabilised a bit now. But stabilised in a state where it itches like mad and looks absolutely terrible. Surely only the addition of bad aviators from Boots could make me look [...]

Movember day 20

So we’re past half way, the end is in sight and the mo bros are looking pretty bad-ass. There’s been some discussion over the gap in the middle of some of our mos. Most notably mine. Apparently it’s a known style but I think it’s just rubbish. Maybe I should refer to what is surely [...]

The Movember playlist

Yes, we’re behind with the Movember updates. The halfway stage has come and gone so I think you’ll have to wait until tomorrow (day 20) for the latest mo-bro pics. But to keep you in the mo mood, why not start Spotify up and join in with the Movember playlist madness? The idea is simple [...]
