It is sometimes difficult to know which is worse, the hyperbole that accompanies product launches, or that from politicians threatening catastrophe at the hands of terrorists unless tech companies stop giving their customers effective security and privacy.
About me: I started my first business in 2004 with the brand Mocks, these are socks for mobile phones. I still have this business now, and have sold over 1,6million Mocks to date. For more info on Mocks visit www.MyMocks.com
In 2008 I wrote and published my book - Brand New Day - The Highs & Lows of Starting a Small Business. This has been really well received and has been cited as an inspiring read.
In 2010 I started Social Rabbit, which is a social media business that helps other businesses understand what social media is and how it can be used to engage customers.
