The "Digital Goodlife

Writing about web page

The "Digital Goodlife" logoSo Tuesday 16th March see’s our first Digital Goodlife workshop for Small Business in the West Midlands to sample some of the free, open source and other tools and software available to help run their business.

The Idea behind the workshop is – how many of the tool businesses are currently using for marketing, management, collaboration etc can be transplanted/upgraded to free and open source technology. Could you do all your marketing through linkedin, facebook twitter etc? would an open source CRM provide you with a better solution than a tailor-made or off the shelf bought product and if so how far can we push this?

With google releasing a free operating system and the likes of open office, flickr, picassa, skype and googlewave are these tools enough to get by on and help improve a business’s bottom line as well as make efficiency savings. Well we certainly hope so and intend to show off a number of these technologies to the lucky few who’ve made it onto the hands on workshop on the 16th!

Looking at the technology progression from basic through to cutting edge emerging technologies at the International Digital Lab we think this will give innovated small businesses an insightful, fun and most importantly useful experience of living the Digital Goodlife!

More to follow… and certainly more workshops to come!

Today @ the Digital Lab

Writing about web page

Friday at the Digital Lab

The end of a busy week back after the long weekend, it feel like a 6day week instead of the 4 days, thats not right! The week has ranged for medical technologies, HDR cameras, social media and failed trips to the gym all linked together by pretty shocking weather.

Our eNewsletter was sent highlighting the web security workshop on the 24th september and students projects for west midlands SMEs to take advantage of!

Also 2 businesses with different opportunities they have been discussing with the KE team and various academics here. I Particular The Lean Company have some good ideas we are going to explore to take forward.

Roll on the weekend
