End of year report

By Dave Snowden  ·  December 31, 2008  ·  News

At our Christmas party in Singapore a few weeks ago, Angelina put together a slide set about the various events over the last year here in Cognitive Edge. We've now published a revised version of it as an annual report and it makes for good reading. It gives some idea of the growth in our network and the increasing number of projects as SenseMaker™ matures as a product. You can also see the smiling (or less so in my case) faces of the team. We are gradually expanding the About us section of the web site to provide more material to...

I was also reading elsewhere of the increasing interest show in Islamic Banking, the proven success of the Grameen Bank and other forms of Micro-lending.

Left overs day

By Dave Snowden  ·  December 28, 2008  ·  Cooking

Memory of Christmas excess having faded its time to use up the left-over turkey (I hate to freeze it). One of the best ways is Turkey Tetrazzini which will go into production later on this afternoon; the aim being to eat in front of the BBC's new and apparently more authentic production of The Thirty Nine Steps. Its amusing to think that complaints are anticipating for not including the Big Ben scene created by Hitchcock's film. For many people these days the film is more authentic than the book on which is based. That aside, back to...
