In many ways, it's fair to say that Bitlink started in a university. When we first got going, everyone on the core team was either studying at the University of Tasmania, or working there. For us, university wasn't just about learning a bunch of skills that might make us employable in the future, it was about exploring ideas, engaging with deep questions and trying to add to the sum of human knowledge in whatever small way we could.
We are pleased to announce that James from the Bitlink team will be heading down to Hobart to participate as a key thinker in "The Hothouse" project, which will be taking place as part of the Dark Mofo festival in June this year.
At Bitlink, we want to work on projects that we find to be personally meaningful and we want for our work to have some kind of positive impact on the world. It's for this reason, that we have included social good outcomes as one of the Four Pillars. However, it might not be immediately obvious why a for-profit company would choose to focus exclusively on projects that have some kind of social good outcome, or how that actually influences the company as a whole.
