57 Trillion

How do you create a global system that can pinpoint your location so easily that a child could use it? Simply slice the world up into 57 trillion 3x3m squares.

Say goodbye to postcodes, zipcodes and long addresses. All you have to do is remember three little words. Not only is this link my home address, it's my front door:

The commercial opportunities are huge for what3words. Think about drone deliveries and logistics companies using the software to send goods exactly where they're needed. Not to mention customisation of the squares. I'm sure consumers and companies would pay to personalise their offices, outlets and homes. Nike = Kellogs = snap.crackle.pop

Definitely one to watch.

A Governmental Start-up

Disruptive technology and legislation don't go hand in hand. Government is always playing catch-up.

Industries can be rattled when new tech comes out and it takes years for laws to be debated and passed to create a so-called 'level playing field'.

Take Uber's recent predicament in London. Incumbent black cabs drivers are feeling the pinch as consumers opt for a cheaper and similarly efficient way to get around the capital. 

Government is finally acting. But why has it taken so long?

Changing the law in London 5 years after Uber comes to market is ridiculous. There should be tweaks to legislation along the way and current bureaucratic governments simply can't deliver this.

How about setting-up a start-up branch of the Government that can debate and propose changes to certain parts of legislation in a matter of months rather than years? I appreciate the how is rather complicated, but I feel it's worth exploring.

Disruptive technology should be allowed to thrive and no incumbent industry is too big to go under, but only if they fail to adapt in conditions that are fair for all.

Why Create A personal Website?

I thought creating my own site would be arduous, but it was a fun and simple process. 

You don't need to technically savvy or know how to code, there are lots of platforms that guide you from start to finish. 

The main thing I enjoyed while putting it together was thinking back on the things I'd done over the last few years. I now have a simple way to share my thoughts and info to family, friends and strangers wherever they may be.

I'd definitely give it a go yourself - whether you publish it or not.
