Changing lives and winning friends

Jeremy David says I changed his life. Just by listening to him at last week’s Northern Voice conference. I’m not always a good listener, though, just ask my wife Maryam.

In the winning friends category, I picked David Ingram up at the airport today. The lengths I’ll go to so I can get a good interview and look at some killer new technology. Izimi has it, they have a P2P app that really impressed me, even though it didn’t quite work due to flaky Wifi at the Niko hotel (not their fault).

If we were IM’ing I could share a bunch of files with you without copying them up to a server. I’ll be using this to collaborate with coworkers so they can get my video files without me needing to copy them up first (will save lots of uploading time).

The offer is still open, if you are a developer and have built something interesting (you define what that means) I want to have you on ScobleShow. Unfortunately I’m pretty much booked into April, but I’ll figure out how to sneak you onto the schedule.

I’ll even pick you up from the airport if that’d help.

  1. Hey Robert, geez you are FAST in getting this stuff up there!!! We’re really appreciative for the pick-up yesterday, thanks. Also, would you beleive, a couple hours after you left we got a better demo location, proper connectivity. I guess thats the way it goes soemtimes. Anyway, we’re gonna try do a little vid ourselves with our toy camera and whizz that over to you, so you can see it really flying. Thanks Robert. D&M.

  4. Hi Robert, I see you mentioned P2P, and as you know its not really P2P: its peer to browser. I thought it was important just to point that out (I know you know this and will be kicking yourself when I say it). Thats one of the fundamental strengths of izimi, that you can publish any content, no restrictions and no need to upload, straight from your PC to anyone; and all they need is just a web browser. When people say P2P it makes me think of closed worlds where we all have to have a piece of client software and izimi is def not that.
    Thanks for the opportunity to comment Robert.
    We’ll see you soon, David & Marc.
