Joining the team this month is the ever excellent Martin Bryant bringing his @TechNorthHQ wisdom and a pair of Snapchat sunglasses from SXSW (everyone loved them). Of course the gang were on their best behaviour, downloading the Red Nose Day swear jar app and testing it to its limits, brace yourselves for this episode.You’re also treated to the official podcast debut of the notorious #Ian who takes on the role of Ben White as the voice of dissent and occasional pragmatic wisdom.On the agenda is digital skills for charities, the NHS, its patients and just about anyone else. They also take a break from insulting Facebook and actually cover some of the great and socially good projects they’ve recently launched. Good work Facebook if you can get this lot to say something nice.Apparently this is the Easter episode so they don’t mention Easter at all in an attempt to annoy the Pope or something like that.If you’d like to get in touch with Martin or Tech North:Twitter: @MartinSFP @TechNorthHQWebsite: https://technorthhq.com/ Things this episode:https://www.theguardian.com/voluntary-sector-network/2017/mar/23/charities-lose-third-staff-digital-skills http://www.rednoseday.com/swearapp http://www.charitydigitalnews.co.uk/2017/03/21/nhs-digital-teams-up-with-good-things-foundation-to-boost-digital-health-skills https://newsroom.fb.com/news/2017/03/more-ways-to-support-causes/ https://newsroom.fb.com/news/2017/02/empowering-people-to-help-one-another-within-safety-check/ https://newsroom.fb.com/news/2017/03/building-a-safer-community-with-new-suicide-prevention-tools/ Get in touch:Twitter: @techforgoodliveInstagram: techforgoodliveSnapchat: techforgoodEmail: [email protected]
