Daniel Tyson gets ink for Ausdroid, raising funds for charity in the process

14 - 1

You may remember a little while back we set the goal of raising some funds for the Ausdroid Community Foundation, and if we met our target, our editor Daniel was going to get an Ausdroid tattoo. Well, if you’re reading this, you’ve probably seen the photo above; we met our fundraising target, and the tattoo is now done!

Of course, Dan loves Ausdroid, so convincing him to get this done didn’t really involve any measure of convincing, but it was for a good cause anyway 🙂

Yesterday, with the help of the talented Reggae from North Shore Ink, the deed was done, and you can see the progress photos below:

Dan is super happy with how the tattoo turned out, and it shows his dedication to Ausdroid, and to covering all things Android and mobile related for our audience. It also evidences passion for doing good by raising funds for charitable purposes… and lastly, perhaps it shows us that he’s a bit nuts, but that’s okay too!

Chris Rowland   Editor and Publisher

Chris has been at the forefront of smartphone reporting in Australia since smartphones were a thing, and has used mobile phones since they came with giant lead-acid batteries that were "transportable" and were carried in a shoulder bag. He saw the transition from AMPS to GSM, loved the Motorola StarTac, and got into Palm technologies in a big way. The arrival some years later of the original iPhone, and then the early Androids, awoke a new interest in mobile technology, and Chris has been writing about it since.

Today, Chris publishes one of Australia's most popular technology websites, Ausdroid. His interests include mobile (of course), as well as connected technology and how it can make all our lives easier.

Well done Daniel — very cool of you to put your body on the line for charitable purposes. You’re a braver man than me!
