When I originally started this blog back at the beginning of 2008, it was dedicated specifically to open source video topics. This was something I was passionate about and involved in. Over the last three years much has changed, although I am still deeply interested in open source video.
Over time I found that I wanted to blog about other topics, but didn’t really have an outlet for this. I didn’t want another blog.
My work circumstances also changed. After eight years at BBC Worldwide, most recently as Head of Digital Distribution, it was time for a change. I invested in a small post-production company in central London, The Station, and also started consulting for mediapeers, a specialist broadcast content distribution tool vendor.
I was also paying too much money each month for a dedicated server that I wasn’t really using. This blog has now moved to WordPress’ own hosting solution.
There it is, a new start and a fresh approach. I sincerely hope there will be a steadier stream of content on this blog, from a wider range of topics.
