The Mint Blog
Over the next few weeks, we're at some of the best conferences, events, and meet-ups that the world has to offer. If you are at any of them, come and say hello!
So far in November, we're in London, New York, Ireland, and Miami. Yes, Miami!
First up, Tuesday, I'll be at Publish! in London.
Some of you are probably wondering what we made at 4D2L.
First, let's remind ourselves of the brief:
"The education industry is charging far too much for a product that is of questionable, and declining, value. Can we create a product or service that tackles some small part of this problem?"
This post is short and sweet, showing the things we made and a line about how we validated ideas. You might see more details on certain projects in the next few weeks.
So, what did we make?
I joined CharityHack over the weekend. It was an awesome hack. I just wanted to say thanks.
To the caterers, who fed us all so well. The mini-burgers were a delight.
To all the hackers who made the place feel full of energy and drive.
To @stefek99, half hacker, half raver, constant source of entertainment.
I'm already looking forward to Charity Hack 2013.
A couple of weeks ago I popped along to FOTE: the Future of Technology in Education conference.
I went to see my old pal Stephen Hardingham at Channel 4 last week. Before the meeting he said: "You could tell us about how things are going at Mint Digital these days."
This called for a short presentation. I hadn't seen Stephen in about 4 years, so here’s how Mint has changed since then.
