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.
