In Blog, Olympics, Technology, Wimbledon on June 26, 2012 at 8:14 pm

A late blog today, as a surprise visit at work by my Dad was then followed by a swift 2 or 3 jars in the City.

With no footy action yesterday, my attention was drawn to Wimbledon and the first big shock of the tournament with the exit of Venus Williams. Even more of a shock though was the fact that we have a British girl in the second round after Heather Watson powered her way through!

The big technology news of the day was the purchase of Yammer by Microsoft for $1.2 billion in cash. This news article from Microsoft provides the full details, but yet another cool social networking tool falls under their domain (Skype was the last one)!

With only 31 days to the Olympics, it’s interesting how unprepared London businesses are for the games. According to this report in Computer Weekly, only 35% of workers have guidelines on secure remote working! If not prepared now, it’s probably a tad too late!
