I’ve known Tom Ilube for a couple of decades now, amazing just how quickly the time’s gone. We used to work together in the late 1980s, sharing an office in Farringdon Road, and our paths have criss-crossed regularly since; when he was at Goldmans and I was at DrKW, then at the BCS and, more recently, at WCIT.Â He’s a start-up kind of guy, and clever as well, so I tend to track what he does. For the last couple of years he’s been at Garlik, an interesting start-up in the identity space.
We also share a passion for education; when I last heard, Tom was involved in a very exciting project in West London. Watch this space.
But that’s not why I’m writing this. Tom has finally done the decent thing and started his own blog. Here. He’s always been open, forthright and engaging, so I look forward to reading him. Especially when he promises to “talk of life, and laugh”. Welcome, Tom. [And by the way, I prefer the Neil Diamond version….]
