You know…

Some things are inherently ‘internet’

The Year I Was Born

Wednesday, March 28th, 2007

There is a little meme going around where you post on your blog a video that was made in the year of your birth. I pondered various music videos (Mainly Deep Purple and Elton John) before settling on this one, a protein synthesis primer…

I am a nerd.

Crunchy

Wednesday, January 24th, 2007

Not much blogging of late partly because I am spending time trying to write a presentation on ‘Citizen Journalism’ without knowing what my co-presenters are doing on the subject. Also I don’t know what the target audience is and coming from a teaching background I know that knowing your audience is really important.

So I prevaricate.

First up – a trailer for the new series of ‘Life on Mars’. If you aren’t British you may not understand.

…and then another video where I suspect a ‘major incident’ will be called by the receiving hospital.

Asimo/Honda

Sunday, December 17th, 2006

Honda have been coming up with some really nice adverts of late, from the ‘Hate something, Change something‘ song (which still brings a smile to my face), to the ‘Impossible dream‘. The clever thing is that they have made them easy to download, something that has fueled the ‘viral nature’ of these adverts, something that the Bravia team have also used to their advantage.

So I was very glad to see the new Honda advert. There is something about the way that Asimo walks that makes me want to giggle. It moves with poetry, and each time I see it I dream of what it might lead to – better artificial legs, the complete design of the wheelchair, and this is without going into the roles that humanoid robots might have in the future.
Until then, enjoy the video courtesy of the marketing smarts at Honda.

Thriller

Thursday, December 14th, 2006

Partly because I want to see how easy (or not) it is to embed Youtube into this blog and partly because I think it is funny, I present to you the Bollywood version of the ‘Thriller’ music video.  (Note, it involves plug-ins and now my brain hurts).
