It only exists in an attempt to prevent linkrot. No new content will be added to this site, and links and images are liable to be broken. Check out begbie.com to find where I'm posting stuff these days.

Political videos meet Google speech-to-text technology

Google has a first stab at making video content searchable, across a selection of political speeches. Will be interesting to see how well this works.

Liquor, Coffee & Scripture

Liquor, Coffee & Scripture

An odd selection of signs on this liquor store. (And another Eye-Fi test… this photo was uploaded via the Wi-Fi hotspot in the McDonald's behind me as I took the photo, and was in Flickr before I got back to my desk)



First photo taken (and automatically uploaded and geotagged) with my new Eye-Fi Explore card.

I never saw much point in the olde Eye Fi cards, when they could only upload to your home network (if I'm already home, I'm already near my laptop and can grab the photos), but with the hotspot support, on-the-go uploading suddenly becomes viable from my nice camera.

Zero Punctuation : The E3 Trailer Park

Zero Punctuation is always worth watching — viciously funny videogame reviews — but this week’s is a great sampler if you haven’t watched before.
