We care about technology-enhanced human systems. So we thought we would share regular thoughts and opinions about why we think they matter so much.
Firstly Ã¢â‚¬â€œ Merry Christmas, Happy Holiday & Festive Greetings to anyone reading this. What an up and downy kind of year 2008 was Ã¢â‚¬â€œ sporting success like the UK hasnÃ¢â‚¬â„¢t seen in, well, as far back as I can remember and then crunches and bubbles bursting all over the place (and didnÃ¢â‚¬â„¢t the morbid mass media love telling us about it - again & again & again!). I hope you enjoyed the former and havenÃ¢â‚¬â„¢t been dramatically touched by the latter. As a new business (7months old) weÃ¢â‚¬â„¢re just happy to be making a go of it, but I think weÃ¢â‚¬â„¢re realistic enough to see that fortune has smiled on this particular fledgling business and I think weÃ¢â‚¬â„¢re in a good position to exploit opportunities as they present themselves in 2009 (alone and in partnership). Anyway Ã¢â‚¬â€œ a lot of people have said nice things to and about us since we decided to find our own path and so as we donÃ¢â‚¬â„¢t have everyoneÃ¢â‚¬â„¢s addresses to send cards to we thought weÃ¢â‚¬â„¢d use this opportunity to give a general Merry Christmas wish and slip into the festive mood and give to those less fortunate than ourselves - but who and how much to give? Well we thought weÃ¢â‚¬â„¢d leave that to you. All you have to do is nominate a charity through leaving their name as a comment below, and then on or around the 30th December weÃ¢â‚¬â„¢ll give Ã‚Â£1 for every comment left to the most popular charity. Now weÃ¢â‚¬â„¢ve done OK so far, but weÃ¢â‚¬â„¢re not made of money (or daft) so thereÃ¢â‚¬â„¢s a limit of Ã‚Â£400 available to the popular charity vote. IÃ¢â‚¬â„¢d be gob smacked if it got that high, but you never know Ã¢â‚¬â€œ and I think if it does reach the Ã‚Â£400 mark then weÃ¢â‚¬â„¢ll probably split the pot and give Ã‚Â¼ to the second most listed charity. So itÃ¢â‚¬â„¢s one nominating comment per person please Ã¢â‚¬â€œ but if youÃ¢â‚¬â„¢ve got friends then make sure you tell them and who knows, this viral festive giving might just see us starting the year with lighter pockets but a warm feeling inside. Have a lovely Christmas / Hanukka / Yule / Kwanzaa and we wish you and yours a prosperous 2009 Ã¢â‚¬â€œ 3D MarComms x This post is now closed - to read the results & who we gave what to then you can read it here. Thanks.
