5 years ago I made it a new year’s resolution to start a blog. I’d been telling many of my clients they should blog and thought I should practice what I preach.

Almost exactly three years ago I attended the first Startup Weekend in Perth. 100 plucky individuals bought tickets to attend. 40 or so got up on Friday night to make a 1-minute pitch (if they went one second over, they were stopped in their tracks).
