Photography Update – SXSW, New York Fashion Week, Renewal Partners, Pechu Kucha & the Purple Thistle Collective - Comments (3)

I’ve been spending a lot of time this year working to turn my photography from a project into a business. I’ve been making photographs way more often, on larger and more well paying projects, while still staying involved in the internet and technology industry. For me (tech + art = happiness). :)

In an effort to catch everyone up on what we’ve been up to lately we’ve posted a series of recap blog posts over on our site. In the near term we’ll be updating our portfolio, pulling together an accurate client list, and exploring other creative ways of getting our work in front of the right people. We’ve been working really hard on getting this ship in shape for the future as well as shooting almost everyday.

Checkin’ In from CBC’s Digital Development Labs Comments Off

(cross-posted from my blog over at Raincity)

CBC Vancouver - Wanderin'-The-Corridors

Checking in from the basement of CBC‘s Vancouver headquarters as we kick off an event which is bound to be quite remarkable – the CBC Digital Development Labs.

This morning was introductions by the entrepreneurial-minded attendees chosen to display and refine their ideas for possible development by CBC. I’m participating as a mentor (along with others) here to advise, gut-check, collaborate with (and learn from) the emerging visionaries.

Our secret lair (which is very cool by the way – set up with a variety of workspaces, conversation breakout areas, Mac labs, gamer stations – feels like jPod) is also loaded with industry types acting more as observers to see how projects come together in the new media paradigm.

Photography Video from Northern Voice Post Everywhere on the Web Comments Off

Here’s a video of me talking about photography at Northern Voice earlier this year. It was taken by Robert Scoble of PodTech and has been posted all over the web including over at Digital Photography School where there is an interesting pissing match going on between people who think my video is a good informal intro to photography and the people who think I’m lame because I don’t know where in Germany the glass in my lenses is ground. *smirk*

George Oates from Flickr Comments Off

Check out this quick interview with George from Flickr at the Vancouver International Digital Festival on Granville Island. I think if you absolutely forced me to pick a favorite Flickr peep…. I’d have to go with George. :)

Videoblogs from China! Comments Off

Well, today is the first day I’ve woke up and not felt jetlagged. I’m still seriously playing catchup… between being out for a couple weeks at Bryght and then going to Vidfest immediately upon my return I’ve been completely snowed in! I’m also supposed to be at the World Urban Forum this week taking place here in Vancouver but alas, my media badge sits over there unused as I can only be so many places at once.

Anyway, here’s are some vlogs from my China trip that have been up on YouTube for a few days but that I hadn’t had a chance to post over here yet. Enjoy, and lets just try to forget about the whole getting naked thing. Pls. Thx! :)

A Couple of kk+ and MC VideoBlogs Comments Off

Wassup internets. Here’s a couple more YouTube.com videos of Megan Cole and I wandering around Vancouver and carrying on. Check it out.

kk+ and MC wander around downtown Vancouver a bit and talk about the Vancouver sunshine and some of the cool *work* parties we have lined up over the next few days. BONUS: One free awesome bachelor home economics tip at the end of this meandering 5 min stream of consciousness. Probably worth it. :P

kk+ and MC checkin’ in from the Vancouver Sun Run. The background music is loud so the audio kinda sux, but I think we both look good at least… especially for 8am in the fuckin’ morning.

Yes, she’s cute. No, we’re not dating. Thanks for coming out.

Workspace: Awesome Shared Office Space for Creatives and Techies in Vancouver Comments Off

Come hang out behind the Seymour Building w/ Megan Cole, Bill MacEwan and I as we get the skinny on Bill’s exciting new shared office space concept for independants called Workspace. You should totally check it out if you are looking for a collaborative and creative place to setup shop and get out of the spare room.

Hangin’ @ Raincity Studios Comments Off

Apparently if I don’t post my YouTube video blogs to this site, people try to claim they don’t exist. Ok ok, you shouldn’t have to follow my online stuff at like 150 different places, but YouTube really could make it easier to integrate it all together. Anway…. come chill at 525 Seymour street in Vancouver w/ me and the Raincity crew before we did the Friday Social Software Geekout Lunch.

SXSW Travelling Videos Comments Off

The Flaming Lips Rock Austin @ SXSWI’m way behind here on posting media from the past couple weeks and SXSW. It was awesome and I have a ton of photos and a couple videos to share and need to do a couple wrap-up blog posts over at Bryght and Backstage. But there is only so much I can do while doing 12 hours of business a day and catching 5 live bands a night. *sigh* Anyway, below are a few YouTube videos from our trip to SXSW last week. More stuff forthcoming… definately don’t miss the photos over at Flickr including an awesome Flaming Lips show.

SXSW 2006 Comments Off

I’m just getting back into the Vancouver flow after my trip to Italy and now it’s time to hit the road again. On Thursday I leave for SXSW in Austin, Texas for 2 days. If you’ve never heard of it or been, here’s a few stats that should give you an idea what I’m in for.

• Showcasing Acts: 1331
• Music Venues Participating: 58
• Music Conference Participants: 8,604 (with band registrations 9,692)
• Approximate Number of Music Media in Attendance: 1,866
• Approximate Number of Music Trade Show Attendees: 11,000
• Number of Music Trade Show Exhibitors: 191

• Number of Films Screened: 180
• Film Conference Participants: 3,807
• Approximate Number of Film Media in Attendance: 459
• Interactive Conference Participants: 3,343
• Approximate Number of Interactive Media in Attendance: 424
• Approximate Number of Film/Interactive Trade Show Attendees: 8,000
• Number of Film/Interactive Trade Show Exhibitors: 125

There are going to be so many awesome bands there… I’m very excited. I pulled together a quick list of the ones I plan to catch while I’m there. I know there are a bunch of others too but they didn’t seem to be listed on the official venue and band page on the SXSW website. If anyone knows of any other ‘do not miss’ shows, please let me know.

I figure I slept about 30’ish hours my whole 12 days in Torino and between us at Bryght launching Backstage at SXSW, and having a booth in the tradeshow, and throwing a big party with some friends, it’s not looking like I’m gonna get much more than that in Texas either. Bring it on! :P

SXSW VideobloggingOh yeah, I got picked by the SXSW crew to be one of their 6 videobloggers for the show. I guess I get a fancy Euro cell phone from them and a backstage, all-access, I’m a rockstar pass and my name on a bunch of guest lists. Woo hoo! kk+ over and out.

RSS + BitTorrent + Your TV = Torrentocracy Comments Off

This looks pretty interesting, going to play with it later today and will let you know how it goes. Thx for the link Alex

Torrentocracy (pronounced like the word democracy) is the combination of RSS, bit torrent, your television and your remote control. In effect, it is what gives any properly motivated person or entity the ability to have their own TV station. By running torrentocracy on a computer connected to your television, you not only become a viewer of any available content from the internet, but you also become a part of a vast grass roots media distribution network.

This is not about the illegal distribution of media, but rather it’s about enabling an entirely new way to receive the video which you watch on your TV. If you ever wondered how and when your computer, the internet and your television would merge into one seemless device with access to anything and everything, then at this very moment the theme song from 2001: A Space Odyssey (“Also Sprach Zarathustra”) should be resounding through your head..

The geekier part (this is where you find out that this software runs only on Linux and is not really intended for use by normal humans :( )…

So, not only is torrentocracy a way of rethinking how you get your media, but it’s also an actual (free) software product by the same name. It is written to be integrated within MythTV, the Linux based home media server project (think Tivo on steroids). It allows you to join bit torrent (p2p) sessions linked to from RSS feeds so that any person running a capable blog can automatically have many people sharing the media they are trying to distribute. It is licensed under the GNU General Public License (GPL).
