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 internet connection. They go to film an interview with the laptop and the audience themselves ask questions from the person appearing.

It was the first time that the people I was with tried this style of interview and it was a good experience.

What was also a nice experience was getting to talk with Gael, getting a more personal view than if we had watched the interview on television. It’s a more relaxed, and in this case, less rushed interview, more personal less formal.

I hope that we get to do more of these events.


Seesmicing from anywhere

I like to seesmic but there’s no way I want to be stuck in one place without moving around. It’s more fun when you see people aren’t in a desk situation. Here are four places from which to seesmic and make things more interesting.

The Mountains

Nice view

And where to have lunch 🙂

Piclens is fun

Piclens is a plugin for Firefox and it’s great fun to use to look through hundreds to thousands of pictures and videos on youtube, facebook, flickr and many other sites. It’s worth playing with.


Other than that the threaded seesmic player is quite fun. You can follow full conversations and get a taste of how discussions progress through the tweets.
