I was searching for some past tweets on the Dx3 conference I went to last month. On Twitter itself you can only get a few days worth of history, so it is useless for something that happened a month ago. …Continue Reading →
My interview with SendToNews CEO, Greg Bobolo, almost didn’t happen because fog kept him stuck in Vancouver for two days. Not exactly a hardship, I know! This fast-growing Canadian company has massively disrupted how video from sports events is made and …Continue Reading →
