One week to go!

It’s a bit crazy to think that in just over a week’s time we’ll be touching down in San Francisco. I’m already bracing myself for the (relatively cold) weather.

The most exciting aspect of the trip, for me, is the fact that SF is such a hub of activity in our space. Nowhere else in the world can compare. To get a feel for how much awesome technology is packed in there, I took a quick poll around the office for various software/services that we use every day. Most of them were in within a pretty small radius, and I threw them all onto a map (apologies in advance to anyone I missed – there’s probably plenty):

For contrast, here’s software/services based in Brisbane:

It’s a big difference. But Brisbane’s got a lot going for it! I’m super excited to learn everything we can about how to build a world class technology hub, and bring all that knowledge back home.

I'm a co-founder at Tanda, a Brisbane startup that automates payroll data-entry and processing for small and medium businesses. It's not a very exciting field - which is why no business owner should ever have to think about it! I studied at Queensland University of Technology where I met my co-founders over a beer.
