Haven’t been blogging on here at all lately! Things have been quite crazy!
#1 – Toygaroo! My new company is Toygaroo. Founded by a bunch of great guys (and a gal!) in California this company looks set to change the way parents get toys for their kids. Toygaroo is a rental model, like FilmAmora and NetFlix. I came on board as CTO, bringing along the software and experience from years of renting DVDs and FilmAmora.

#2 – Kyoto! At the beginning of the year we completed our purchase of a house in Kyoto, Japan. After the series of disasters there it has been difficult to not just watch the news all the time. Luckily the house is a long way away from the problems.
#3 – FilmAmora! We’ve taken FilmAmora offline for now. We are looking at changing the business structure. There is a lot of potential in the business, but we need to do it right. I think it was suffering from some problems. When it comes back it will be bigger and better than ever.
I’m trying to get more disciplined about blog writing. I’ve got 3 on the go – this one (ostensibly about business related things), KyotoExperiement.com (about buying our house and spending more time in Japan) and rorramblings (occasional notes on software development).
I’ve never been a fan of blogging for blogging’s sake, but, there is lots going on now and hopefully I can find the time to write coherent articles that might help others.
