IBC was good this year. There was real stuff to see. Ideas that were whispered two or three years ago are now products you can play with rather than vapourware. But you had to be cheeky to find some of them. Marching up to the stands with a request for a 90 second product demonstration certainly helped to cut through the sales bitch, sorry, pitch. Camera man Dave Allen and I spent a couple of days preparing our "gadget safari", looking for products, including software, of interest to the independent producer.
Digital Lifestyles magazine has picked up on the presentation and now has the text and videos we shot online. I am thinking of starting a separate blog on "stuff for journalists". Anyone interested?
