The Best Advice Does Not Always Come From Your Friends - Andrew J Scott - Rummble
Abstract: Recommendation services have been in existence for years, yet so few –if any- consumer services deliver truly personalised recommendations. Rummble was created to solve that problem. Andrew will explain why and how he created Rummble to do that and the bumps along the way.
Bio: Andrew is Founder/CEO of Rummble, an internet company which personalises the physical world to your tastes, via your mobile phone. A passionate advocate of everything mobile, Rummble is his sixth technology start-up. After publishing an Atari ST fanzine at age fourteen, Andrew started his first company in 1989 and went on to run a successful web development company through the dot com years serving blue chip clients, which he sold in 2000. There he developed larger scale web sites including world’s first online digital video news archive (www.BritishPathe.com) with sister company Cambridge Imaging, which contained thousands of hours of video and over 12 million images. Other start-ups have included an interactive personal fitness website (InTraining) with Olympian Dave Morgan, a CRM and marketing startup (TelephoneWizard), the UK’s first interactive SMS flirting service (DinnerDateAuctions) and Europe’s first location based social network (playtxt).
