One of my main gigs for the past few years has been looking after the blog posts for OTT and content security specialist Viaccess-Orca. Here are the Top 5 most popular stories from 2017 on the site.
Two interesting stories highlight how crowdsourcing apps can really benefit the people that use them, providing that the numbers involved in the networks are high enough.
From Nervana to the Pixel Visual Core, a couple of news stories from last week written for RedShark that highlight the frontiers of silicon development.
One for one of my clients, Viaccess-Orca, that looked at one of the big meta-themes from this year’s IBC: the rise of Artificial Intelligence and how AI TV and Machine Learning will impact every level of the industry.
Quite proud of this one: a story about the forthcoming RED Hydrogen smartphone that first featured on RedShark News.
At least do a good one. This is a good one. [Via Digital Trends]
Stick all three of those together and you probably have the film treatment from hell, but happily I’ve been writing about them separately for IBC365 of late.
A lot of the work I’ve been doing recently falls under the category of content marketing, which means a lot of the work I’ve done recently gets attributed to someone else. That’s part of the gig, but it is nice when something you do goes out under your own name.
Having recently pulled out of Facebook myself (lost password, noticed stress levels dipped markedly when not checking it, decided not to reset password) I can appreciate why the Guardian and the BBC have pulled out of its Instant Articles initiative.
I was watching one of my daughter’s favourite programmes, StormChasers, with her yesterday, and in one fairly chaotic scene an excited group of storm-chasing twenty-something meteorologists is trying to work out what’s going on with a wall cloud and where a possible tornado might be forming. Man A speaks without comment. Man B speaks without comment. Woman A speaks. “What do you know, girl?” says my daughter. WTF?
