25 March 2013


For the third consecutive year, runners from Solicitors Own Software Ltd. (SOS) have taken part in the Bath Half marathon to support the company’s chosen charity, the Prince’s Trust. Team SOS have now raised £4,200 for the Trust, a ‘youth charity that helps change young lives’.

In March 2013, Team SOS joined over 11,000 runners who took part in the 21km race, won by the Ethiopian Tewodros Shiferaw in 1 hour 3 minutes and 26 seconds.

Client Account Manager, Douglas Convery (placed 2727), who has completed the Bath Half four times, and achieved a personal best time of 1 hour 45 minutes and 41 seconds comments: “Every year I swear I won’t do it again but then I find myself being lured back by the challenge! If you’re keen to do a half marathon, Bath is a fast, flat, scenic course with lots of support on the way around.”

David McNamara, Managing Director of SOS adds: “This activity helps us to embody one of our corporate vales of being a supportive organisation. Including what our runners achieved in the previous two years, we are delighted that we’ve been able to collectively donate nearly £4,200 to such a worthwhile cause.”

Scripting consultant, Adam Jobling, also took part as did Richard Handy, Project Manager. In total, ten employees from SOS have run the Bath Half for the Prince’s Trust since 2010.

Woebots and robots

Nadia chatbot

The chances are that you may not be entirely sure what a bot or a chatbot is. So, the news that, “starting today, DoNotPay is opening up so that anyone can create legal bots for free (with no technical knowledge)” may be a bit opaque. But bots have their devotees. The picture is of Nadia, an Australian bot being developed to give information on disability benefits with the voice of Cate Blanchett. The editor of Chatbots Magazine (OK, no neutral source) is pretty clear about their future. He writes articles with titles like ‘How bots will completely kill websites and mobile apps’. Joshua Browder, the creator of the DoNotPay parking ticket challenger, is behind what he hopes will be this major expansion of legal bots.
