HipLogic Live pulls content from real-time sources like Facebook, Twitter, Sky, Disney, Sports, Weather, newsfeeds and more, through a smartphone-like interface. It works by delivering push content notifications to the phonetop without using SMS. This means that they bring the world of applications, widgets, live search and real-time notifications to mass market handsets, without the need to invest in a new smartphone.

Hai Media Group’s Lisa Devaney attended SHINE 09, a two-day business “unconference” for social entrepreneurs. The event included one-to-one mentoring sessions, social collaboration games, creative brainstorming to foster new ideas, and guidance to help execute new projects.
Funding was won for a new project by Martin Sherrard, for his Stratford Walled Kitchen Garden concept, offering horticultural training and a community restaurant serving produce grown in the garden. He pitched his concept for the prize, along with Re-Made in Brixton, Open Free Cycle and Youandiskills.com.
Participating in Dave Wilcox’s social collaboration game, Devaney, along with others, conceived the concept of “Re-Think!” a community programme for troubled youths caught in the criminal justice system that would see them be taught new 21st century skills by learning how to re-furbish old computers from discarded consumer electronics. While Re-Think! didn’t win the game, due to a request for more funding than was on offer, the process brought together a mix of ideas and agendas and created something productive.
