When it comes to change and innovation, platforms would argue they are changing all the time – constantly building improvements in functionality and service.
As normality gradually reasserts itself after the summer holiday season, Mark takes a depressing foray into the gender investing gap.
Well now, it seems like forever since I’ve had my hands dirty with the Update, ably assisted as I am by Rich, Old Tom (as opposed to Young Tom) and diverse others these days. In fact it’s only been three weeks, but as we all know a lot can happen in such a short time […]
And so it came to pass that the Platform of the Year Awards were held on a Tuesday night, and Mark had not lined anyone else up to write the Update and lo, he looked and he found that it was really not good. But given that the damage was self-inflicted he had no choice […]
You know what? I can’t even. So here’s a joke instead. Why are ants always getting sick? Because they only have tiny antibodies. Thank you. I’m not here all week. Might take to my bed for the next two years. Quite tempted to leave the Update there. But I won’t. Instead, let’s have a think […]

Welcome to the last twelfth of the year so bad they named it twice. If you’re still here – and that’s a conditional phrase that carries more weight than it should this year – then you made it. Well done. Nearly there. Keep going. I’m usually a bit of a moan about the run-up to […]
