Video on the move

I’m sitting on my sofa watching Mulan with Arthur and thinking about our forthcoming trip to the UK. You see, we have a 4 hour drive and it’s going to be interesting keeping him busy through the voyage. The problem is that we have 2 six month old babies so our attention is probably going to be on driving and the babies. So, we’re looking for something for him to watch videos with. An internet based device would be ideal.

And the truth is that using a connected device using something like satellite network access would mean that you could watch streaming video anywhere you wanted. I don’t know what the connection would be like if you’re using it while watching in a moving car. But hopefully thanks to pre-caching you should be able to get a decent stream.

Come to IOM Twestival

We’re organising an Isle of Man event for Twestival, a global fund raiser for people who know each other over Twitter. It’s a way to get in touch with your online friends in a real-life scenario and raise money for a good cause.

It’s at Jaks on the prom and we’re going to have live bands, karaoke and a number of silent auctions. You can also come learn about Twitter if you’re not into it; and even learn how to tweet in Manx. We’re even going to have a live stream and link up with live satellite webcasts from other Twestivals around the globe.

Amazing how the brain works: Been feeling like I don’t really want to go to gym. Turns out I left my gym bag at home! Cause-effect?

Question to my PR friends out there: Do you always feel the need to stick a quote from someone in a media release? It feels so stereotypical
