First post!

October 11, 2008

Welcome to Glider Gun. This is our weblog; there are many like it, but this one is ours.

We’re Future Platforms, a small software company which creates and launches lovely mobile software products; if you’d like to find out more about us you can visit our web site, but chances are it’s a little out of date. That’s one reason we set up this site.

We live and work in Brighton, a seaside city on the south coast of the UK, about 45 minutes from London. Brighton has a strong reputation in digital arts and software and a cosmopolitan culture. We love it here.

We’re a team of 12 designers, developers, QA and management types, and do a lot of very serious work, helping businesses understand and make money out of mobile (I won’t bore you with the case studies here). FP also has a penchant for the ludicrous: who else could build the worlds first ghost detector for mobile phones, use birdwatching to persuade Nokia customers to learn more about their phones, or harness GPS to get kids away from the TV and outdoors playing live-action arcade games?

Glider Gun is a place for everyone at FP to talk about what we do, how we do it, and what we think about the world around us. As such, sometimes you’ll read things here you disagree with; sometimes we’ll read things here *we* disagree with; and sometimes this site might veer towards being self-promotional.

I’ll make no apologies for this: we’re a diverse group of folks, and we’re proud of what we do.
