This sprint hasn’t really been a sprint, more of a really long refinement and retrospective. When I came back from Prague, Corona was starting to get more media attention with speculation of a recession so I decided it was time to start looking for work. I spent some time getting my CV together and tying

This sprint has been a little… fucky. The winter has hit my mood hard and I struggled for the first week to focus. Stepping away, sleeping, working out – none of it worked. So it’s been a bit of a struggle. I almost booked a trip to the canaries just to get some of that

Oh hey! Quick recap Hi I’m James! I’m a 34, slightly belligerent and from the UK. Between January 2020 – April 2020, I’m building a social network! Why? Because it’s fucking hard to make new friends and socialise as you get older and I think the world needs a platform that helps with those things.

Sprint 1 If you’re an entrepreneur you’ll probably be in a similar boat to me. Trying to do a million jobs on a tiny budget. Great for your startup, not so much for fortnightly updates! So I’ll try to keep these posts structured and a little ridiculous. There will be a combination of tech stuff,

Ever since I began SoSa back in 2014, I wanted to find a way to make it open source! Lack of time, resources and a bunch of clone sites popping up meant I didn’t ever get around to making the source code available on Github. Well, that’s about to change! With the relaunch of ...

Hi, I know this would have come to you as a shock, i’m sorry for that this isn’t how I wanted SoSa to end. Let me explain When I started SoSa, I wanted to help the imgur community connect, it was a bit of fun and I thought after it launched it would only last
