I really wanted to chat to Sabrina for the Podcast, not so much about Kickstarter but about Sabrina's thoughts on animation. She attended CalArts and honed her craft at Gobelin in Paris so I was curious what she'd found - story or pictures, what's first in making animation?
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'.The first thing we chatted about was being a start-up, in Mexico City.
In Episode 13 of the Redcert Podcast I spoke with Sarah, Jennie and Grace Mc Ginn. They're serial entrepreneurs and they're doing it again with OPSH, a curated, personal high-street for consumers.
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?
Named as one of the Best of App Store 2012, ThoughtBox is led by Cristinea Luminea, the Founder and CEO who I spoke with about coding in schools, working in partnership with established brands and about quitting your job, because you think you have a good idea.
Back in February at Mobile World Congress we heard about the Nokia X and learned that Nokia would be forking Android for a new line of Android handsets.

Apple seem to banning apps like Coinbase from the App store and I played with The Jester's new app, Bitcoin Bud this week, it got me thinking about a blog post I wrote in 2012 - could Apple be planning a currency of their own? I chatted about this with App developer Dermot Daly of Tapadoo this week, and it seems he agrees it may be something Apple do in 2014 and he chats about the mobile commerce projects he's been involved with.
Andy O'Donoghue and Dermot Daly, the founder and CEO of Tapadoo discuss iBeacons and what Dermot's company Tapadoo have been doing with fascinating devices. Devices that could well radically transform sectors like retail, sooner than we think.
Today Dermot Daly one of the founders of Úll gives us a sneak preview of who'll be speaking at the most important App conference in 2014 as it becomes an event all about 'making beautiful products', and not just apps and some of the worlds's best product people gather at the the Lyrath Estate Hotel in Co Kilkenny, Ireland in April.
