Last year, I met Heather Brunner, CEO of WPEngine in Lisbon. In an interview broadcast on Midlands 103FM we chatted about WPEngine's investment outside of the US, in the UK and Ireland but in this extended version we talk about a lot more. What has powered the growth of WPEngine since 2010? What's life at a tech company in the Silicon Hills of Austin, Texas? How WPEngine's customer focus is in their DNA and the importance of WordPress in democratising publishing in a new media world.

Fitbit was established in 2007 and dominates the fitness tracker market They’ve just announced revised versions of their Flex and Charge trackers and some Fitbit execs were in Dublin to officially open their new EMEA HQ, where they say they’ll employ 50 people by the end of this year. I sat down with Chief Business Officer, Woody Scal and we discussed gamification, new products and how companies might be able to unlock the potential of fitness tracker data for the benefit of customers, health services and society as a whole, but first, I asked Woody about this significant investment for Fitbit, outside the US.

I've been buying razor blades for two decades, and have never given any thought to the science & engineering that makes shaving possible. In a Podacst recorded last year, I had a fascinating conversation with Dr Kristina Vanoosthuyze, from Gillette's R&D facility on follicles, prototyping, women in science and how shaving has evolved.

Recently I got to chat to Charly Lester for the Midland 103 Tech Special, but a chat with Charly is more about life, society and love, than tech. The founder of and the UK Dating Awards, she's a regular on BBC Radio 4 and Editor-in-chief of The Guardian's Soulmates website and Global Head of Dating for Time Out - she knows dating, online and off but I think she knows you and me, and that's what makes her insights so lucid. The first people I knew that fell in love online were a couple of CompuServe users in the early 1990s - where there was a maelstrom of unmoderated poking, flirting and propositioning across the Atlantuc. CompuServe's 'channels' were the Wild West of dating and thankfully things have matured since then - not only the interface! So in Podcast 21, I asked Charly how she started her blog 30Dates, Tinder's pricing strategy for older users, the truth about the 'Hook Up Generation' and, if you are online looking to connect, her top tips for finding love in the wires.

Tonight was Dublin Beta 15 - that, in a transient world is consistency. I haven't been for a while and this seemed an appropriate evening to rekindle things in The Hangar on Dublin's Andrew's Lane; Fingal Enterprise Week started today and by lunch time I'd met hundreds of people planning on starting small businesses and tonights Dublin Beta was a The Startup Gathering edition. John O'Rourke Russell Banks and Gene Murphy make Dublin Beta happen once a quarter and although this is a mature event there's still a lovely Indie feel to it - there's a rawness and a swagger to the event that's helped it retain its audience and it has similarities not so much to London events, but to start-up events you might see somewhere like Berlin, So, I headed off to Andrews Lane, and found that FIntech had found its way in to Dublin Beta - food and drink, hospitality were there but the first pitch that caught my eye was Daire O'Neill's A5 Technologies……

Over June 15 & 16, the world of FinTech converged on Belfast for MoneyConf. Andy O'Donoghue from The Gadget Buzz was there and he got to chat with some of the companies launching at MoneyConf, including Margaux Avedisian from MonetaGo who announced their Bitcoin Exchange platform would go live in 40 countries, as well as Irish start-up iSave who are building a savings platform to help consumers get their finance under control. Andy also talked to two of the keynote speakers from MoneyConf, Jane Zavalishina, CEO of the Yandex Data Factory and the broadcaster Max Keiser. The first thing Andy asked Max? Who's more afraid of crypto - Clearing Banks or Central Banks? And before MoneyConf kicked off, its sister conference, EntConf brought together the enterprise sector and one speaker Andy was keen to chat to was the new VP of EMEA for Power Storage - James Petter.

The most charming Kickstarter I've backed is Sabrina Cotugno's Bleeding Heart campaign. Sabrina is a storyboard artist on Gravity Falls and Bleeding Heart was a step away from animation and in to the world of comics. Bleeding Heart was 28-pages about a young man named Henry - a scientist-in-training who one night encounters an injured werewolf collapsed on his doorstep. Honestly, who could resist that tale? Coupled with great rewards it was an unstoppable campaign, soaring past 100% funding in a day, and going on to raise $23,000 from almost a thousand backers. I really hoped I'd get to chat to Sabrina for the Podcast, not so much about Kickstarter but about Sabrina's thoughts on animation; she attended CalArts and honed her craft at Gobelin in Paris so I was curious particularly about one thing; script or pictures, what's first in making great animation?

It's 30 minutes of WWDC 2015 speculation with redcert host Andy O'Donoghue and Tapadoo & Ull Conference founder, Dermot Daly before he boards the plane for the Moscone. Among other topics: iOS9, AppleTV 4, Apple TV Streaming, Craig Federighi's script and Developers and HomeKit. And Andy heard someone's making home-security cameras for Apple to launch by year end - so is Apple going to put more hardware in the home, with AppleTV as the HomeKit hub, or is a phone just fine? He's convinced but Dermot, well he always looks sort of curiously sympathetic at him.

A month to go to WWDC 2015 and Dermot Daly the CEO of Tapadoo will be packing his bags again for the iOS developer pilgrimage of the year, but what are we likely to see revealed this year? There's been virtually no chatter about iOS 9, but it appear in June, and will iRadio be launched? And speaking of iRadio, where is Dr Dre? Zane Lowe joins Apple along with (allegedly) some key BBC Radio 1 producers - so Apple must be planning something exceptional (iTunes Lounge?). Also in this Podcast, we discuss what Apple's R&D spend really indicates and, as I often do, I run one of those left-field theories by Dermot: iOS Everywhere - in a world where Apple likes glass, there will be lots of it, with icons?
