It’s Shark Week, apparently. This is a thing in America, where everyone watches sharks on the telly and talks about sharks on Twitter. Maybe they also talk about it in person, in their American places, like Walmart. Great whites in Walmart. This proves it is American, because if it were English we would be talking about basking sharks in Boots.
Recruiting for technical roles is no picnic, they say. There aren’t enough developers out there, they say. If only these harbingers of doom would jog on and let us get on with writing our job descriptions and let the storm blow over, right? Wrong.

The internet is a wonderful thing, but it is often a very ugly, and very useless thing. Luckily, to cheer ourselves up, we’ve taken it upon ourselves to highlight the bits of the internet that are brilliant, and beautiful, and useful- to give you alternatives to the grim world out there.

To continue our season highlighting Women In Tech, we’ve got an interview with the lovely Zoe Peden, Chief Juggler at Insane Logic- a tech company currently creating speech, language and communication tools for the very young and those with special needs. We love Insane Logic over here- I once cornered Zoe at a careers fair and told her at unprecedented length how great and how needed her product was- and we’re pretty sure you’ll feel the same.
For our Women In Tech series, we’re bringing to your attention some of the forgotten heroines of science- and their incredible lives. This time we’re giving you ten lessons we can learn from the brilliant and beautiful Hedy Lamarr.
Well, the sun is shining, birds are singing, and it’s time to get stuck into Campus Party proper. Not that we’d know about the sun or the birds, of course- we’re in the heart of the O2, surrounded by more innovation, entrepreneurs, and tech types than we ever thought possible. “How can there be so many geeks in the whole UK?”, asks Paolo, our head of campus marketing.
