Battenhall turns five

A lot of people, it turns out, have a five-year plan. I’ve been asking around and I can confirm these plans are almost always incredibly exciting. To travel the world. To buy a home. To swim with dolphins. To start up a business. Some people just plan for health and happiness, which is sensible I think.

Things are getting ‘heated’ on Strava…

As an avid triathlete, I would say that Strava is the social network for athletes. The service, which tracks sporting activity via GPS and has had over 1 billion uploads to date, shares data with users across the globe.

While Strava is already famous among athletes (particularly cyclists and runners), this week the app made headlines in more controversial circumstances when its global heatmap was launched. It seems that some people using Strava-enabled devices have been carrying out some pretty sensitive jobs indeed, which has raised questions around data sharing.
