Last month I was in Amsterdam for the annual IBC trade show, a large and important expo for people in the broadcast and film industries. I have been going to IBC since 2003, my company Automatic Duck would exhibit with other plug-in companies in the Plug-in Pavilion. But 2010 was the first year where Automatic Duck did not exhibit. There are still a lot of good reasons to be at IBC, so I still traveled to Amsterdam for a few days.
When my friend Randy Altman, the editor of Post Magazine heard that I wasn’t tied to a booth and was instead “wandering around” the show floor she asked me if I would like to blog for the magazine’s web site.
I didn’t immediately jump at the chance. Sometimes I think I’m not a terrible writer, but I know that I’m a slow writer and I wasn’t sure I would be able to find anything interesting to write about. But it would be a new experience no matter how it turned out, so I figured I’d give it a shot.
I ended up writing five posts for the Post Blog.
- Refreshed eyes on IBC
- A new unified power brew
- New card offloader for digital filmmakers
- New options for field recording
- Hiding in plain sight
Thank you Randy and Post Magazine for inviting me to participate in your blog, I enjoyed the experience.
