Terinea is pleased to announcement the appointment of Paul as software developer in the Edinburgh office. Paul will be mainly working on our ERP System (Enterprise Relationship Planning) which works in conjunction with our touch screen system, Jserve.

We hope that Paul enjoys his time at Terinea and that my choice of music in the office doesn’t upset him.

Tech Weekly in Edinburgh – Guardian Podcast

May 7, 2008


Last month I had double helping of my weekly coffee morning, when the Guardian held their weekly Tech Podcast in Edinburgh, Home House on Picardy Place. The Guardian was looking to find out more about Technology and Scotland, in particular the gaming industry.

Only managed an hour, but it was interesting to see the wide range of technology companies operating in Edinburgh and Scotland.

February 27, 2008


Last year I met David Bain of Purple Internet Marketing at a Edinburgh Chamber of Commerce event. January this year he sent me pre-launch copy of his 26 Week Plan which is available to buy tomorrow.

As you know I’ve been particularly busy over the last two months and as a result have yet to take a serious look at the Internet Marketing Plan. So here is quick shout out for David and in the mean time you can download a free 61 Page guide by simply registering at…

BarCamp Scotland 2008

January 14, 2008


Next month sees the return of BarCamp Scotland after last years huge success meet up. Unfortunately I couldn’t attend last year, but this year, the date has priority in my diary. So what is BarCamp?

What is BarCamp Scotland?

Mentioned the word “BarCamp” to me last year and I too would of been confused!

In basic terms, BarCamp is a conference with an informal approach, events are less organised and tend to happen more spontaneously. But unlike conferences, BarCamp is a two way affair, where attendees can help by give talks or demos, offering premises to hold the event, supply food and drink, help with administration etc. Like BarCamp Scotland, these ad-hoc un-conferences tend to centre around technology related subjects, although there have been other non-tech related BarCamp’s.

So in summary if a traditional conference is propriety software, then a BarCamp is open source software.

BarCamp is an international network of user generated conferences — open, participatory workshop-events, whose content is provided by participants — often focusing on early-stage web applications, and related open source technologies, social protocols, and open data formats.

Edinburgh Champagne Morning

edinburgh coffee morning - ewan mcintosh

Last week only four turned up. This week, ten turned up for probably the last Edinburgh Coffee Morning of 2007. What better way to start the morning than with a complimentary slice of Panettone and a glass of Prosecco sparkling wine from the owners of the Centotre.

If that wasn’t enough, Ewan came along bearing gifts. A number of signed Stormhoek posters from Hugh MacLeod. Mine is already pinned up in the Terinea office, thank you Ewan and Hugh.


The main highlight was Ewan demonstrating Seemic which you can see in action below. Although in true Ewan fashion, he started filming with no prior warning, so you end up sounding stupid and say something like “IT”!


Here is another short video of us drinking at 8:55 taken with my new Samsung F700.
