  • Debatewise treats decision as data

    Debatewise is a three-month old UK site which is deceptively simple at first but which could have a future in data gathering for market research.

  • ArtFlock aims to disrupt gallery monopoly

    SEEDCAMP COVERAGE: The global art market is worth around $1 trillion a year, but just like the global music market it is ripe for disruption. Just as in music, there are many artists struggling both for recognition and to make a living from their vocation. But art galleries traditionally charge a whopping 40% commission on sales, and with fierce competition for physical space, it’s not… Read More

    Well, we’re cranking up the blogging engine here again. My name is Mike Butcher and some readers may know me from a while back when I helped launch this site for the first time late last year. I’m delighted to say that – following a hiatus – TechCrunch has decided to show its firm commitment to this market by re-launching here and, for my part, it’s great to… Read More
