(No, not this CGI, that CGI! The above pic is only slightly relevant but someone sent it to me a few years ago and I just thought it is too funny not to reuse.)
My blog is staying right here but I am moving on from nooked. It’s been great fun and a tremendous experience building out the new nooked service with Fergus and the team. The new service backend is now very much alive and kicking and in use to deliver products to lots of shopping widgets. Building it with Ruby On Rails and basing it on the Atom Publishing Protocol (and other RESTful HTTP APIs) should allow it to facilitate nooked in releasing many more future product offerings to make feedcommerce a reality.
Meanwhile, if you need the services of a web service architect/engineering manager/multi-language developer then feel free to get in touch.
Great news – Fergus Burns, our CEO, has been recognized as IIA Irish Net Visionary of the Year and well deserved it is too! Big congrats to the big man, visionary he is, but he didn’t see that coming
Seriously, ye guys/gals don’t know the half of it. I sometimes wonder where his ideas come from (I suspect he has a time machine somewhere) but it is a fantastic challenge developing this game changing stuff – we’re all very excited about what we’ve got in the pipeline.
It’s also worth mentioning that I think Nooked are not the only beneficiaries of his efforts. Fergus does a ton of work within the Irish web start-up community and I think they are all better off for his efforts.
I for one welcome our new net visionary overlord.

I have been quiet haven’t I! The recent blogging hiatus was for two very good reasons though – I went on vacation to the US with Aine (hi sis!) and since getting back I’ve been up in Sligo meeting the good folks at Nooked whom I’m joining as their new CTO.
Exciting times ahead, Nooked already have great products but they also have the vision and plans to deliver a truly disruptive feed commerce platform – more on that later.
This is going to be great!
