We’re on a Steve Jobs style retreat this week

In Falmouth

Okay not exactly a retreat more of a bit of a breakdown, re-energize and feedback on the year coupled with a bit of fresh air, shopping, exercise and we suspect some drinking (apparently Jacobs Ladder is the place to be). We’ve listened to the great TEDxBristol folk and will re:BOOT!

We have a lot of interest from companies wishing to engage and sponsor the Workshop Wednesdays which is great news. We will be putting together some packages to better support companies and enable us to feed ourselves (and pay for Falmouth! [just joshing as that’s out of our own pockets])

Whilst we are away though our lovely friends and members are stepping in for us to host our

It’s world Emoji Day on the 17th

Emoji’s have been used since the beginning of the internet to transmit emotion in the written medium. As internet technology advanced, so did the use of the emoji, with previously pure text bits of ascii art turning into full-fledged animated faces and symbols. We’ve all used them, and we’re excited for the future of them! World Emoji day celebrates the history of these emotional expressions, and encourages you to be exceptionally emotive! After all, it’s always nice to let someone know how you’re feeling when you write, isn’t it? Emoji’s are just one more way!

Happy History of Math 2.0 Day

“A celebration of the blending of technology and mathematics. For a lot of us, math wasn’t a favorite subject, we’d spend the entire period staring at the equations and wondering what sort of livid madman designed these torture chambers on paper. Ultimately, however, we realised that math is utterly indispensable in our modern world.”
