The Future As Seen By Me In 2010

Well looky here, things one has scanned in eh. (ignore the photo, that's some guy that made some accounting software, not sure what became of him ;) MIKE RIVERSDALE is fuming. The expensive headphones he bought in Sydney three weeks ago have just died. His first reaction is not to randomly spill expletives into his coffee, but to use his iPhone to vent his frustration to his Twitter con- tacts, under the moniker Miramar Mike. "I will also put, 'What should I do?' It's a conversation. I'm reaching out to the people following me." The council predicts hand-held digital devices such as smartphones will rule the world in 2040. They already rule the life of Mr Riversdale, whose company WaveAdept helps businesses adapt - their computing sys- tems to allow staff to work from anywhere - and with anyone. In order of fre- equency, he uses his iPhone to tweet (1136 followers; 8363 tweets since joining), e-mail, make phone calls and use online services, such as checki

Welcome To WaveAdept


It's been a long time coming but Dave Livesey (@daveadept) have finally launched our new company - WaveAdept (@waveadept)

What is it already doing:
Connecting your people, tools and information to make you more productive.

Whether you use Microsoft Office, Open Office, or a different set of tools, we streamline your business with simple tools that you will actually use.

Very similar to the work MiramarMike.co.nz has been doing ... which begs the question, "So, what does that mean for this blog and MiramarMike.co.nz?"

WaveAdept will be the name on the business card for organisations that want to use our services. MiramarMike will be be used to represent myself in all facets "professional" that fall outside of WaveAdept.

To give you some guidance, Mike from WaveAdept will be:
  • The person engaged by companies around collaboration
  • Presents at "cloud computing" events
    (come along this Friday - http://wellingtoncloud.eventbrite.com/ - $0, 2 hours)
  • Who helps organisations shoot old intranets
  • Implements Google Apps for you
  • Introduces and runs agile/Scrum development
The current MiramarMike will still be the person that:
  • Advocates for open data from the Government
  • Presents "using of the Web" to communities/groups
  • Promotes Open Source use
  • Is sarky, challenging but always thought provoking
  • Is involved with barcamps and the like - NZGovtOpenData anyone?
There's bound to be fuzzy boundaries between them both and in those circumstances expect to get two business cards as we all work it out :-) Plus there will be cross-posting on both this blog and WaveAdept, if that looks like changing I'll let you know with plenty of advance warning.

Neither will ever wear a suit.
Both will sport the awesome brooch from Sue.

Any questions just ask - you can choose to go formal with WaveAdept or professional yet informal with MiramarMike :-)
