Rather than becoming an epic battle of man against machine, the future of technological innovation can be a beneficial one - so long as you're equipped with the skills to use technology to its maximum potential, while still adding that all important human touch.
The problem with Secondlife was and remains that it was too intensive, you had to give it 100% of your attention away from any other apps. In the multi-tasking world we live in with app messages flying all over the place, this is not ideal and so I think one main reason why Secondlife has never become mainstream.
Sandwiched between Saudi Arabia, Israel, Iraq and Syria things could be so different. Instead of the history of turmoil that each of its neighbors has endured, Jordan has managed to remain peaceful, moderate and welcoming. Two thirds of the population are not native Jordanian - they have moved, migrated or sought asylum from one of the surrounding countries. Imagine that.
No-one likes a delay, and it seems weird to have a finished console just sitting on a shelf waiting to be released, but by delaying to Christmas Nintendo can improve the launch games and make sure the console is as perfect as they can possibly make it before unleashing it onto the world.
A new generation of workers - digital nomads - are harnessing the power of mobile and instagramming their way to a new kind of productivity; free from employers, property, belongings and stress. And in their kiteboarding wake, our collective attitudes to work and life are shifting.
Online streaming has certainly grown significantly over the past 5 to 6 years. Twitch.TV, and a few others, have not only helped games reach bigger audiences, but also helped the casual and the pro-gamers earn a living. Through subscriptions, donations and just general advertising, playing video games for a living becomes very much a reality for the fortunate few.
I was incredibly fortunate to be one of three entrepreneurs invited to join the inaugural Virgin Atlantic flight from London to Detroit. After an extraordinary four days of business mentoring, partying at 38,000ft , and exploring the city I returned home feeling blessed, inspired and wondering where my canapés and film crew were.
Much online behaviour is terrible. We take things personally, throw insults, shut down debate, never challenge our own ideas, and generally act like idiots. Not you, of course - but lots of other people. There is a better way.
His name was Dr Sergio Canavero. And next year, he will attempt the World's first (known) human head transplant. A boyhood dream of his which has been a quarter of a century in the making, Dr Canavero displays all the telltale signs of a maverick (and a psychopath).
The artist's work takes 3D tech to the limits by creating items that are truly bespoke and unique to the individual. Dimitris is recognised as an international expert on 3D art and has exhibited internationally.
To try to address some of these challenges, we designed the NHS Innovation Accelerator (NIA) last year. Like many ideas it was taken from another sector. Accelerators aim to support the growth and spread of technologies, in the past developing solutions such as AirBnB and Dropbox. Microsoft, IBM and MIT all have accelerators, and now we do too.
As long as men in STEM continue to unconsciously perpetuate poor workplace habits through lack of confidence we'll have a big problem on our hands. A diverse workforce is maintained by a combination of retention, attraction and hiring of diverse talent. Improving men's willingness and ability to challenge these norms, and redefine the status quo, will help to ensure that we have a comprehensive solution.
