Thx NickB and CC. CC - isn’t the issue that the time is now? If Vimond’s (or anyone’s) product proves out of date in two years that’s not really the point, given that everyone is moving to remote working as we speak. Nick B, I remain enthusiastic about your positivity. Like you, I’m a large-scale backer of Blackbird. But that doesn’t stop me asking awkward questions when the need arises. I’m having difficulty distinguishing your backing of Blackbird as an historical choice versus ongoing objective assessments - this time of two product offerings from the point of view of an end user. I think it boils down to a single question: what does Blackbird do (that’s important for the main chunk of their market) that Vimond doesn’t? I’m not wanting to be awkward, but simply wish to improve my understanding by asking an independent expert, such as you, for some valuable insight. Many thanks, as ever.

Both the Doris and myself pay £450 a month to commute into London. So it has been a decent benefit to work from home.

Invest360, Some good points, I guess for me having the kids around wasn't workable. I also like to separate home and work...

I immediately dismiss any challenger without at least 5 website overhauls. That's the minimum standard for me.

If Vimond is using old technology it may not be apparent to end users now but a £ to a penny it will be in less than a couple of years. As new applications demand more and more capacity and need increased speed too the old technology becomes almost unusable.

Invest360 I don’t need to ‘imagine‘; (having spent my life in this industry) I’m backing Blackbird

I imagine a CTO or COO will only care about whether the technology efficiently delivers a solution to their problem of cloud based editing and publishing at low bandwidth and zero latency - not how the provider technically delivers the solution.

For anyone interested, a promo video from 3 months ago on Vimond IO: hTTps://www.facebook.com/VimondMedia/videos/634424644036652/ And a video of Renard Jenkins talking about Vimond IO in What Caught My Eye at IBC 2019. He seems to like it but says at end "it's got a lot of basic things in there, it's not going to replace anything right now...": hTTps://www.facebook.com/watch/?v=2280209018774581 Interestingly it was same Renard Jenkins who nominated Blackbird for Top 6 What Caught My Eye at IBC 2019. So it seems an industry expert thinks a lot more of Blackbird. hTTps://www.prnewswire.com/news-releases/blackbird-receives-top-6-what-caught-my-eye-award-at-ibc-2019-300925122.html Sounds to me like Blackbird has been underdevelopment a lot longer and has a lot more functionality maybe...IMHO

Invest360 I think they do care we are not selling to the end user like a consumer but to CTO of major enterprises and we are winning contracts to do very demanding work following strong testing acceptance. Check out the testimonials.

NickB, you say of Vimond: “I don’t back the way they are trying to work using old off the shelf technology. They are demo-ing a Diesel engine out of a generic parts bin.“. I guess my question is whether it works as well or not? I’m not convinced most people care about what’s in the box as long as the machine solves their problem. That’s the acid test of BB’s market potential, not whether it’s cleverer technology.

Huge announcement by Mark Zuckerberg today Mark Zuckerberg: Half of Facebook may work remotely by 2030 “We are going to be the most forward-leaning company on remote work at our scale,” the Facebook CEO said in an interview. Beginning today, the company is making most of its open roles in the United States available for remote recruiting and hiring. And later this year, many of Facebook’s 48,000 employees around the world will be able to request a switch to remote work. Within the next decade, Zuckerberg predicts, Facebook — a company that until recently paid new hires a bonus of up to $15,000 to live near its Menlo Park headquarters — could be a largely remote workforce.

Yes love WFH much higher quality of life but it probably doesn’t work for younger people in their career.

Also, I run and own a business and we’ve been much more successful employing people who enjoy the flexibility. That and being able to put the money we save from renting an office in my back pocket. :o)

McS. I’m so used to it that I hardly remember how to compare it with anything else. I love not having to commute and massively more enjoy the company of my colleagues because I only see them every so often. I love travelling into London about once a week (back in the non-Covid day) and meeting in all sorts of interesting new places. I don’t like mixing my personal and work life and going back to my desk till midnight, sometimes. I love being there when my kids come back from school and sharing mealtimes with them. When I hear how much time and money is wasted by my friends and work associates commuting every day I marvel, and hearing about their familiar Sunday afternoon blues, I feel I’ve probably got it more right than wrong.

I find this whole we're going to work from home thing forever a bit weird. I tried working from home not so long ago, hated it and rented an office instead. Does anyone actually like to work from home?

Almost sure GFIN is using BIRD but no release? I am pretty sure the "Antique Road show" is coming to us soon. Grab BIRD the antiques/ gold if you can. BWTFDIK

As i said, their logo is on the home page and they also mentioned the renewal in the accounts, even if it has now expired. It should be shoddy on both counts if now they weren't. Mind you - a renewal would not need an RNS, but it would be odd given the did RNS the original deal and renewal.

I remember the one in Fulham was nicknamed S@#t and Legless. Stevo's back yard will do for £2. I will hire the pole, you bring the doughnut stuff. We will place IM and SS on a chieftain's shield eat wild boar and throw stiggles into the tree. yeeha. BWTFDIK
