Liverpool based Internet of Things Inventor John McKerrell knows where he is at and that's at the launch of a fantastic new product from the heart of Liverpool - The WhereDial.
If you haven't come across the WhereDial before it's a cute device that connects you to your friends and family so you can never lose track of them again. The WhereDial uses mapping technology which is avalable on so many Smart phones these days, to track the person your connected to, and as they move from location to location so does the WhereDial - from Home to Work or Pub to Cafe you just sit back and WATCH.
No sooner has it been launched and the WhereDial is up for an award!

There is an exciting event (lets face it everything is exciting to me) taking place at Madlab next month for anyone who is interested in working with Yong People to give them the digital skills and creativity they are going to need.
