What were you doing at 19? He’s only 19, but Riad Chikhani has raised serious money. What for? GAMURS.

Love that I forgot my notes for this segment / story. The show must go on. Next!

The social network has attracted more than 4000 users from the gaming community while the site was still in beta testing. In my mind this is very demographic obvious – gamers love their niche worlds.

We had a target of 5000 users when we started in the accelerator program, but one of the mentors said we should be more focused on improving user engagement, the usage of the website and the value the users get from it,” Mr Chikhani said.

Classie

Crafty. Knitting has made a comeback along with a new event style being touted out through the social medias. Classie.

Classie organises and runs a range of interest groups and classes across all major Australian cities. Whether you’re into arts and crafts, fashion, or are just looking to pick up a useful skill or two, Classie has everything you need. Absolute beginners are most welcome. Classes are largely project-based, and cover all the basics, so you can jump right in at any time. If you’ve already attended a few classes, or learned the skills somewhere else, this is a great opportunity to pick up some new tricks and ideas for projects of your own. Each class is led by one of Classie’s talented hosts, who all have a wealth of knowledge and experience to share. They will be on hand to answer all your questions, and can offer tips and advice on how to best apply your newfound skills at home.

Foodology; Foodography

Because if you eat something delicious but Instagram isn’t there to capture it, did it really happen? Perfect setting (ceramic plates), perfect food, perfect wine. What more could you ask for? Perhaps the right setting and some help along the way? You’re welcome.
