When Mattias Swenson, Patrik Ring and their three co-founders first decided to launch a startup out of high school, the plan was to work on it for a year and then move on with their lives. Growing up in Stockholm, they said, they didn’t know of anyone else who gave up university for entrepreneurship. But more than five years later, they’re still at it. And their startup Bloglovin, which is something like a visual RSS reader meets Tumblr for the entire blogosphere, is poised for a new level of growth. Bloglovin, a design-conscious RSS meets Tumblr, gets Betaworks investment

The Design Thinking School | NoTosh Design Thinking is more than "shop" class and some post-it notes. It's more than simply 'making' things to solve a problem. We've taken the concepts of design thinking that we practice every week with creative companies in fashion, media and technology, and matched them with what the research shows us works for great learning. The result is a process that helps frame learning for which young people have more responsibility, more choice and deeper learning in any given field, from Shakespeare to Social Studies, Physics to Philosophy. We can work with schools on a regular basis through our NoTosh OnTap retainer basis, offering a low day rate fee with no hidden transport or accommodation charges. We can also run a programme to fit in with your school's regular professional development sessions.
Pixar, since it was purchased by Disney, gives off an air of resilient creative and commercial success, but the journey is rarely that smooth. In fact, the more creative the output, the more commercially successful it is, for Pixar at least, and the processes used by the teams is remarkably close to what we see in highly effective classrooms. During a keynote en français in Québec, I wondered why learning today sometimes felt less personalised than 30 years ago when personal computers first hit my primary school. Inspiration came to me from my daughters, Catriona and Anna, as for the nth time they sang along to the karaoké version of Disney's Frozen title track, Let It Go: I was fascinated by the obvious success of this film in hooking my kids, and wondered if I might be able to make some links between what we know works, from the research of Dylan Wiliam, Hattie and the like, and what we see works in the creative industries with films like this.

These are technologies that I actually use, they exclude web tools and services which I do a separate top ten for. They are generally tools that make my life easier, more efficient and more productive. Having changed jobs in 2013, this has made the list a little more interesting as the technologies I used over the year did change quite a bit. Missing from this list is BT Infinity FTTC which made the list for the last three years, not that it doesn’t exist anymore, I moved in 2012 and am now connected to the only cabinet on my exchange that won’t be upgraded to FTTC. As a result I am stuck on a very slow 1-2Mb ADSL connection. Here are my previous top tens from 2008, 2009, 2010, 2011 and 2012.
