Earlier this year I met Linda Franco, the CEO and co-founder of Machina Wearable Technology.

Machina were described once in Wired as making ‘the most beautiful wearable tech in the world’ and I’d been curious for some time about the people behind a company that was apparently scorchingly innovative, so I was thrilled when Úll 2014 announced that Linda would be a key-note speaker and panelist for the 3-day conference. So, I packed my bag and phoned our director on TV3’s The Gadget Buzz and we headed for the medieval city of Kilkenny, a beautiful, charming city of around 20,000 people.

And the first thing I asked Linda about? What’s it like being a world renowned start-up in Mexico City, a city of 20 Million people.

Bleeding Heart was 28-page about a young man named Henry – a scientist-in-
training who one night encounters an injured werewolf collapsed on his doorstep. Who could resist that tale? Coupled with great rewards it was an unstoppable project, soaring past 100% funding in a day, and going on to raise $23,000 from almost a thousand backers.

Grace Mc Ginn on Design, Responsive & Architecture

When I met Sarah, Jennie and Grace Mc Ginn recently, they said lots of interesting things. In this shortcut from Episode 13 of the Podcast I ask them wIll ‘mobile first’ be the OPSH approach to engaging customers? And Grace Mc Ginn talks about architecture and web design – is there a parallel in our return to flatter, cleaner design and the defining work of the modernists who created form and function, in bricks and mortar?
