Outcastes – a Multimedia

Outcastes – a Multimedia

My wife looked over my shoulder when I was doing the last bits of editing yesterday. “This is the most impressive thing you’ve done in multimedia”, she said. Now talk about a compliment. And not that I agree… but I have to admit,  I am proud of it. Sure, the next thing will be better – […]

Sochi Olympics, Day 1

Sochi Olympics, Day 1

Feb 6th, 2014 The Sochi 2014 opening ceremony just started and I am watching it on TV. No, I did not go to the ceremony, it would have meant probably c. 10 hours including all the travelling, waiting and actual ceremony included. Yesterday was a total killer and I preferred to take it easy today. […]

Redundancy Revisited

Redundancy Revisited

Came to think about this after a FB discussion I had with somebody. The argument was about the need for speed in todays media.  An argument I have heard so many times. Basically: How speed is of the essence and the winners of that battle will be the ones to survive in this game. I […]

Val di Fiemme 2013

Val di Fiemme 2013

(Click here or the image above to enter the multimedia) Back on the road. A quick pitstop back home after Nove Mesto and then off to Italy for couple of weeks to cover the WC of XC-skiing. Looking forward to it – as beautiful mountains all around me probably allow some skiing myself… :-) But […]

Multimedia: The Independence Reception 2012

Multimedia: The  Independence Reception 2012

    (Click here to see the multimedia) It is the most important social happening of the year – as a social event, you could say it is sort of our Academy Awards. It is also the most viewed TV-program of the year. I’ve covered the event several times – yes, you might argue that […]

Shooting 360°x180° Images – from a Helicopter

Shooting 360°x180° Images – from a Helicopter

This is a small demo.  Please note: this works (properly) only with HTML5 compliant browser – such as Safari on a Mac. It works on iPad2 (i.e. Mobile Safari) but it does NOT work with iPad 1st gen. nor iPhone (except – I was told – it does work with iPhone 4S) – due to non-optimized media and subsequently high […]

What the Hell Are You Thinking?

I’ve tried now three times to write something about this, but I just can’t do it coherently . Sorry.  It’ll turn  into a long whining story which somebody will try to turn against me …. and as we are talking about the national religion – ice hockey – so I really should watch my step. […]

Oslo 2011 Skiing: A Multimedia Approach

Been here now three days: fog, rain, snow…  It is a question of choosing your profession, I guess, but I just don’t enjoy being wet all the time – nor does my camera equipment. Plus in this total “grayness” it is hard to make photography worth showing. But yesterday I made something which I consider […]

iPad – The Future of Our Journalism?

This is sort of an anniversary article: I wrote about the iPad about a year ago for the first time. A the time, nobody new what it would be called: iTablet, iSlate… No tech specs available, just rumors. I immediately said – then – that this would change world as we know it. We, the […]
