  • On twestival

    The first tweetup I went to saw a crowd of no more than sixty people. The twestival had many more. Enough to fill the Doon club. So many new faces but not many new people to follow. It’s fun to see how big the London twitter community has become. The usual people were there, sizemore, […]

  • From One Screen to the Next and the Next

    A good video looking at the evolution towards the fourth screen

  • IBC and Automated Camera Systems/Solutions

    One guy was going around IBC on a segway that was modified for steadycam work. Rising from the platform was a rest where you could put your legs to keep upright whilst to the side the steadycam mount was free to move for steady shots. That’s just one of the contraptions. Simple automated camera heads […]

  • Plurk and mobility, why I like it.

    Plurk is one of the most interesting mobile “microblogging” tool available at the moment because of it’s simple interface. Without the need for additional applications, expensive data packages and more you can follow the conversation of your contacts and friends in a way that neither jaiku nor twitter allow. If you’re on your home network […]

  • IBC and some of the trends to take notice of.

    IBC is a big show. There are a lot of things to see. Some of those are fun and innovative whilst others are less interesting. I’ve noticed that there are quite a few companies showing mobile and IPTV solutions. Many of them are multiplatform, web tv, mobile and other. they work on a variety of […]

  • IBC, the N96 and DVB-h

    One of the advantages of going to IBC is that you get to play with toys like the N96. I did this at the Nokia Ovi stand. They were demonstrating the possibilities of OVI as well as DVB-H. DVB-H is one method of getting live television broadcasts to the phone using a different part of […]

  • Gael Métroz and Dziga Vertov

    For three weeks he had no battery and was unable to record anything but the rest of the time he was collecting 150hrs worth of video for his documentary Nomad’s land. We’re speaking of Gael Métroz of course, a swiss born traveler who wanted to retrace the steps of Nicholas Bouvier. He would travel from […]

  • VideoSurf – Video search engine with a difference.

    Videosurf, still in beta is an interesting way to search videos. I got my invite this morning and so far there are a number of features I find interesting but I’ll learn more about it before going into detail. When it’s ready it will be an interesting to site to use to sort through many […]

  • Gael Métroz au City Club de Lausanne

    Today I met, Gael Métroz, a guy who decided to travel along the trail of Nicholas Bouvier shortly after his studies. It was an opportunity to try the seesmic style of interview at the City Club in Lausanne. The idea is simple. Those doing the interview have a laptop with a webcam and a good […]
