V-Logs from the online consultation meeting

Hermione Way, newspepper.com, interviewed some of the participants after the meeting on the 4th December. Whilst we set up collaborative areas for all of you to continue to add/develop some of the ideas that came from the day, I thought that is might be interesting for you to see what people said as soon as released from the room.

HUGE thank you to Hermione for doing this, and for highlighting what we are doing in this week’s (episode 3) techfluff.tv. She came in for the second half of the meeting and joined in on the discussion around social media and policy development. You may notice that I am not interviewed, this is because I am RUBBISH at being in front of a camera, much better at writing. Anyway, everyone else said it so much better than I could.

Hermione Way – Techfluff.tv

I have heard a lot about Techfluff.tv, the brainchild of the delicious Hermione Way of newspepper.com and featuring the very clever Michael Acton-Smith and beautifully coiffed Oli Barrett, amongst many others. However, as is often the case, by being around the people involved, reading the Tweets (shudder) and Facebook updates I felt as if I was fully informed without even watching the damn thing. (Silly me).

Then I watched it, what a crackingly brilliant piece of journalism. Please do go and watch it, I suspect Hermione will be the receiver of many gifts from now on as people enveigle their way onto the web’s most sexy and quirky channel for ‘the hottest entrepreneurs, start-ups, events and news straight from the London tech scene’.

Blogging sin update: cannot believe that I had no idea Josh March was also involved in techfluff.tv and feel like a complete idiot for not knowing. Apols 😦
