I Am Not A Number

We have talked previously regarding online reputations and how things such as your Facebook timeline, tagged photos or number of friends will influence your future credit score.

However following on from an article in last month’s Wired Magazine [Welcome to the Reputation Economy, Wired UK] it seems that it may not only be straightforward social networking habits that influence your future standing but also all kinds of freely available online data that looks set to impact your financial credibility, career prospects and even the chances of you renting a car or booking select holiday destination.  You may not have been informed as yet, but your virtual self is set to become big business.

Scary, Orwellian stuff you may think, however, doesn’t it in reality make perfect sense? We’ve all googled ourselves and scrolled through the wealth of information available to the world at large. Why not use this data to form a kind of living, expanding and breathing CV? ….

 

The Brixton Pound

Recently I wrote about the newly launched Bristol Pound and why we at FundingKnight were fans of this community orientated and hyperlocal currency.

With stunning, classically laden piano forming the basis of her critically lauded debut, Philharmonics, the girls are had imagined Obel’s upbringing to have been that of a child prodigy, perhaps performing sonatas aged three to an audience of kings and queens in powdered wigs. So it was with a little disappointment that we find out that the artist’s path to future superstardom was ridiculously normal and the singer herself ludicrously modest and affable.  “I started playing piano when I was little and basically kept on playing. I guess a lot of friends of mine, they played too, but they stopped at some point and I just kept on playing in bands, not because I wanted to be a musician, I had never really thought about it.” Continue Reading…
