Livefeed from Barcelona: On the Air

Livefeed from Barcelona

Last night I came to the hotel and opened a good bottle of wine. Felt like I’d earned it; exhausted but flying: everything just came together in the end. I was so happy. Fast trans­mission, no hickups really, workflow getting better and better, faster and faster.

For instance; before I shot the image above (the winner of 100m dash Lemaitre lifting the flag) the image of him crossing the line was already displayed in the slideshow. With a comment. I mean, talk about fast visual story­telling.

I sent an email to my clients this morning saying that the system is up and ready for real opera­tional use; we’ll see if they pick it up. I will continue doing this throughout the compe­tetion until sunday except today, maybe, as there is no peak action going on which would be of interest to Finns; and I leave yesterdays images to the server, so people can see what it is all about.

So stay tuned And — I feel like I am talking to a wall here — I would really appreciate some live commentary thru Twitter as I am working inside the stadium.

  1. I’ll try to follow your work today with my N900 mobile. Let’s see how it goes. I noticed that Aamulehti was promoting your livefeed this morning.

    1. Hi Tommi -

      great; tweet me if you can. It is a standard webpages, but requires flash and decent screen to display. Let me know how it works; with iPhone it does not work. Gotta go, javelin in one hour.

  2. Hi,

    I used Firefox mobile browser and it does not do flash either at least not fully. It did not run the slideshow, but I could see the images when re-freshing the page. I will try the N900 native browser later. It runs flash very well. The N900 has a very good display for a mobile phone. A laptop would be still a better option, but I could not carry it with me today.

    I used Mauku for Twitter comments. That’s still beta software, but it handles basic twittering conve­niently.

    I’m amazed how you manage to do all the things while in the middle of heated action.
