Summer of Networking

Early summer saw Tim in London on a quest to secure some investment for Yoosk - several promising leads have come of his visit and Tim had the chance to take part in some interesting events.

One of these was the Channel 4 sponsored 2gether08 event in Shoreditch, held over the 2nd and 3rd of July.

Whilst there, Tim was interviewed by Intruders TV:

July also saw Yoosk nominated for its first award - The Catalyst Awards - OK, we didn't win, but its the taking part that's important isn't it...isn't it? Anyway there was some stiff opposition and the eventual winners were great sites being run by some very bright and innovative people.

There were also meetings with MP's and local councils about how best to use Yoosk to help politicians and councillors engage with the public - more on this later when we have finalised some details.
