Tiree Dashboard brings together important web based information for residents and visitors alike. It is the brainchild of Prof. Alan Dix and I would like to thank him for giving ‘Life On Tiree’ permission to make it public. We owe him thanks too for all the time and work in bringing his idea to fruition.
By clicking on any one of the icons you are taken to even more information, whether it relates to CalMac, the Weather, Flights, Social Media, Time and Tide, or News and Sport. One most helpful example is demonstrated below:
Alan is a computing professor at Birmingham University (previously Lancaster) and researcher at Talis Ltd. and works on most things that connect people and computers. However, he started off (years ago) as a mathematician and this is still his academic first love!
Although Alan has spent a good part of his life in England he is actually a Welshman and claims to have ‘all the nationalism of an ex-pat’. However, he now lives on Tiree and twice a year he runs Tiree Tech Wave. You may find that you come to rely upon Alan’s ‘TIREE DASHBOARD’!
