Hi Garry,

Nice hearing from someone in the "neighbourhood". Funny your bio/interests sound very similar to mine. 

 

Inspired by Tron the movie, I originally started with Computer Graphics and 3D Animation, then moved into Multimedia followed by Web development. During this time I developed my technical, creative, user experience development, business, people and management skills.

 

I love "connecting the dot's", combining/integrating exiting technologies to provide practical solutions.

 

In 2001/2002 I started on a RFID/NFC based mobile phone payment solution, I even got to patent registration, stage one in UK, unfortunately I didn't have the funds or the team to pursue this further... funny to see nearly 10 years later Google and Apple doing something very similar.

 

Currently working at GSIT as an eLearning Manager.

 

I always keep my eyes on interesting technologies like Augmented Reality, QR Codes, NFC, Mind reading technologies, consumer Head Up Displays, eye movement tracking, "tagging" and many others.

 

My next big "personal" project is to develop the truly next generation Human Computer Interface that includes service integration. The current icon/windows approach is fine if a bit tired looking, but with a slight shift in thinking and creative integration, things can be a lot more useful and easier to use... lots of dots to connect.

 

Again nice to "meet" you. 

 

Kind regards,

 

Paul
