Delightful data

September 2008, by Denise | 5 Comments – latest by Alureon

There’s a lot of things that make the MOO crew happy – and contrary to popular belief, they’re not all food related. One such thing is people doing cool things with the MOO API – like Mooplr the recent MOO/Dopplr mash-up, by Kevin Lloyd, which helps you make Stickers with the names of the cities of your past, present and future trips.

This week we spotted Alberto Naranjo Galet had made a cool little app that helps you easily make coloured 2d barcode stickers, with the text of your choice. Creating the barcode in real-time, the application lets you choose a background and foreground colour and save the results. Once you’ve made …Continue reading this article…

Start ‘em young

September 2008, by Denise | 2 Comments – latest by Denise

Do you find it difficult to network? To walk right up to people and say ‘Hi! I’m X from Y company, nice to meet you..!’ It’s not as easy as everyone makes out, is it? Even if you do have a beautiful MiniCard or Business Card in hand. Well, if you’re thinking of having children who will one day become Captains of Industry, you could help them out a bit by starting them off networking when they’re young. By the time they get to pre-school they’ll be old hands at this game and will work that reception room like a pro.

How? Easy, just get them some MiniCards (easier for little hands) and get them out there practising. …Continue reading this article…

Dopplr, MOO, Microformats, APIs and you

September 2008, by Denise | 5 Comments – latest by Gianfranco Chicco

It’s been a busy week in the MOO office, and our trip to the dConstruct conference feels more like a month ago than the 7 days it’s really been. But while we’ve been busy behind the scenes, the team have been bowled over by the cool things people in the MOO Community have been making.

If you remember earlier in the week, I mentioned how excited we were to see MOO Stickers featured in Dopplr’s presentation. They created Stickers featuring the names and associated colours of cities all over the world, as seen on Dopplr.com. Actually – they looked just like the ones featured in this photo, by Matt Jones, Dopplr’s own Design Director.

Work for MOO!

September 2008, by Denise | 8 Comments – latest by Cheryl

Got the skillz to pay the bills? Then read on, because you could be just the person we’re after. We’re looking for a few different people for a couple of different roles, and here to tell you all about them is Joy, our head of HR:
—–

Hello! I should probably start with the obvious: What is working at a London startup like?

Well, it’s an exciting time to be in a tech startup in London. The tech community is still small but growing by leaps and bounds. We are very passionate, outspoken, and super-social. It reminds me of the climate during the dot-com boom in California in the 90′s. We got some amazing talent, and we’re always looking …Continue reading this article…

As you know, we’re a big fan of ‘People Powered’ stuff. We had a People Powered Holiday Card Competition last year, and you lovely people voted for us to win the People’s Voice award for Services at The Webbys earlier this year.

Our book-making friends over at Blurb are currently holding a vote for the best photography book, entered into their Photography Book Now competition. If you have spare half hour, and love photography, do dip into the competition and vote for the ones you think are the best. If nothing else, the ones I’ve seen so far have made me really want to travel more – perhaps you could use this as …Continue reading this article…

Back from the seaside

September 2008, by Denise | 2 Comments – latest by dotdean

We’re back after the dConstruct conference – and glad to say, much fun was had by all. There were a few MOO Stickers lurking around the place, in various guises – like these for Silverback, which were shot by sophystar:

You can see them already stuck in place, in this lovely shot by paulstanton

We were also excited to see MOO Stickers on the big screen! They were shown in a presentation by Matt Jones, of Dopplr, and handed out later in the day. This shot is by Andy Budd

And although we didn’t get to see these MiniCards in person, we did spot them on Flickr, in this photo by …Continue reading this article…

Come and say hello at dConstruct

September 2008, by Denise | 3 Comments – latest by Denise

Some of the MOO Crew are heading down to Brighton tomorrow, for dConstruct. It’s a one day conference – with a great line up – which we’re all looking forward to.

Speakers aside, it’s a very sociable conference – and we’re looking forward to meeting new people there too. If you spot any of us, do come and say hello – and give us a card, if you have one!

We’ve seen a few orders whizzing through in the last few weeks, which we’d like to see in real life.

Like these MiniCards, by cole h, for the new app he’s working on

And these Business Cards, by builtbydave

We’ve also spotted these great shots …Continue reading this article…
