from the internet to 3d printing lecture

I recently did an all questions answered workshop with Virgin Management Ltd. I asked their staff to email me all the questions they had about technology and web which they were too afraid to ask normally. I received questions ranging from the very specific: what is an API and how would it be used, to what is the internet?

Here is the audio and slides from that presentation as a loooooooooong video. (sorry runs for 85min)

It's often sad to return home as a gardener and find you're out of time and energy for your own garden. With this in mind my website is now almost 4 years old and its missing the flame, care and functionality that I put into new projects. It's a little rough around the edges.

Over the next few months I will creating a new site which reflects me in a more simplistic manner, but also will give me the space to show off some of my skills, ideas and generally get at things easier. Hopefully see you there.
