I still think of myself as a newcomer to retailing, but I've learned more about food in two years at Tesco than I've done in many years. It's been a journey which has left me mixed emotions.

Whilst talking to Tom's consultants, other Epilepsy professionals and parents, it was very clear that a lot of people were interested in having an alarm system that seemed to be as accurate as it was proving, but this would mean throwing everything we had into it.
Over the next few weeks, we'll be sharing blogs from inspiring innovators, who are using tech to change the world - from the charity helping sight impaired kids use public transport independently, to the start-up that have created an app to help parents suffering from postnatal depression...

Many social networks are criticised for providing their communities with a news feed filled with angry political rants, tragic breaking news, and hundreds of posts about people struggling with illness or persona turmoil.
