Australian enterprise software vendor Atlassian have just published some impressive results for the last quarter: Atlassian’s active customer count was up 27 percent in its fiscal second quarter as the company topped sales and earnings expectations. The company, which makes team collaboration, project tracking and productivity software, reported a net loss of $1.7 million in the second quarter, or a penny a share, on revenue of $148.9 million, up 36 percent from a year ago. The 27% rise in

Louis Richardson: When do we learn?

I’ve long been a huge fan of Louis Richardson‘s presentation and story-telling style. Therefore it’s really no surprise that Louis delivers the most persuasive explanation I’ve yet heard, of how and why collaboration and communication networks can be infused with cognitive/AI abilities to stimulate learning, mentoring and personal development:

On the next WTF Tech podcast episode (to be published this week), Darren, Jesse and I spent a fair amount of time discussing Virtual Reality and our personal experiences with using the new technologies. [Spoiler: Both Darren and Jesse now own HTC Vive VR headsets.] One of the apps available for the Vive system via HTC’s VivePort solution marketplace is IBM’s Watson-based IBM Speech Sandbox: What if you could talk to your environment in VR?

From the official press release: Diluted earnings per share from continuing operations were $12.39, down 9 percent compared to the 2015 period. Net income from continuing operations for the twelve months ended December 31, 2016 was $11.9 billion compared with $13.4 billion in the year-ago period, a decrease of 11 percent.

This week’s Awesome Apps: 2Do and Overcast
Tue, Jan 17th 2017 6:25a   Stuart McIntyre
Business App of the Week: 2Do There a good number of really excellent task management/GTD applications on the App Store these days. From the simple to-do list apps like Wunderlist and Things, through to the comprehensive GTD-derived toolkits like Omnifocus and Todoist, I’ve probably tried them all! Over many years of use, and numerous attempts at refining my work practices and task management approach, the app that I’ve come to feel most at home with is 2Do. Available on iOS, And

A few podcast recommendations for 2017
Tue, Jan 10th 2017 2:00p   Stuart McIntyre
As I mentioned on my recent post introducing the WTF Tech podcast, I’m a massive consumer of podcasts as well as having hosted a few in my time. My listening habits tend to be whenever I’m alone in the car (or driving my 16-year old geek son around – we tend to trade podcast recommendations), when I’m out walking or running, doing chores, or when there’s mindless work to be done (company accounts, expenses etc.). Across all of those situations, I probably get throug

Tue, Jan 3rd 2017 3:50p   Stuart McIntyre
Throughout 2017 (and potentially beyond), Monday is going to be Awesome Apps day here at McIntyre Towers. As yesterday was a holiday here in the UK, we’re a day late this time, but we’ll be back on track next week! Since going iPad Pro back in the early summer, 95%+ of my online hours are now spent on iOS. Between the 12.9″ iPad Pro and iPhone 7 Plus, I am at the stage where almost the entirety of my consultancy business can be run on the iOS platform. This has taken some work
