Young Maker: 3D Printer Crowdfunding Campaign Update

3D Printer Young Makers
Our 3D printer Indiegogo crowdfunding campaign has come to a close and wow, was it ever a huge success! Thanks again to all of our incredible contributors and everyone who has shown their support throughout the campaign. Not only did we hit our goal 11 days early, but within the remaining days we went above and beyond our original goal, how awesome is that?! A little over two months ago this was just an idea. Manu Sharma, Obaid Ahmed and Luc Lalande realized the possibility of what an innovative technology like a 3D printer could bring to youth in Ottawa, especially disadvantaged and inner-city youth.

Young Maker: 3D Printer Community Pop-up Campaign

3D Printer Community Pop-up

It’s a very exciting day here at OAK. Over the past month and a half Manu Sharma, Luc Lalande and Obaid Ahmed have been crowdfunding to host a 3D printer pop-up at OAK. This printer will be used exclusively for community benefit, and will be available for onsite demos to community organizations. The aim was to raise $5400 in 45 days, and 11 days early we successfully reached our goal. The support we have received for this initiative was absolutely incredible. Specifically, the support from the Ottawa community has been outstanding, not that we expected any less! On behalf of OAK, I would like to personally thank everyone who donated and/or spread the word of the campaign. The power of word to mouth is very well known, and we witnessed it ourselves throughout this campaign. Read the rest of this entry »

Spreading The Fun Wisdom

OAK Computing Fun Wisdom WordleI was thinking, what better way to start a blog post about spreading fun wisdom than with an awesome Wordle concept cloud! I am seriously hooked on this site- in 2 seconds it creates a beautiful word cloud from your text. It’s such a great tool to visually map out your thinking, papers, copy or anything! Anyways, this is starting to sounds like a Wordle plug and not a blog post. How about I just consider that my good tech karma for the day? Read the rest of this entry »

What’s Happening @OAK: May 2013

Ah!! Back to work after the long weekend. Most of my peers are still in the long weekend mode, but not here at OAK. The office is re-energized and the team is ready to take on the warm challenges of the summer, building magical solutions for our clients, working on fascinating new ideas, and hopefully enjoying a road trip or two.

The winter was long, cold and unforgiving. Sadly, we had to say goodbye to a couple of our OAK family members who are taking the world on themselves. Dave Hunt, one of our former partners, has spun off OAK and created his own services company, we couldn’t be more proud! There is someone else we are also very proud of… our very own Manu Sharma has been named one of this year’s recipients of Ottawa’s ‘Forty Under 40’. He has been recognized for his entrepreneurial mind, leadership, and commitment to the community. We all know how awesomely talented Manu is, about time someone else recognized it. Just teasing, congrats Manu! Read the rest of this entry »
