YouTube keeps getting better — annotation

I am easily amused, but I was messing around with a boring FlipCam video of some traffic in Bengaluru shot last night (or was it the night before?) and I noticed one can now embed annotations in one’s videos.

I bet I could rent a car and dominate Bangalorean traffic, no one is worse that a Boston driver.

Whereabouts week 6.9

Back from Bangalore, taking Monday off to get some recovery in and perhaps seek a chiropractor to go after the torn serratus muscle in my back that makes me feel like a javelin target every time I sneeze. Tuesday through Friday in Cotuit, then Raleigh next week for meetings and that summer climate I miss so much (John Battelle coming to talk to the marketing teams about conversational marketing).

As soon as I get to the Cape, it’s the work out of the day, a green salad, and maybe a twilight expedition for a bluefish or two. Bengaluru was excellent this trip – very productive meeting with our emerging market teams, the stuff that made the company so cool to begin with, now to make it happen.

David Hill is the #19 Most Influential Person in Mobile Technology

David Hill is the #19 Most Influential Person in Mobile Technology

Some linkage to one of my favorite peers at Lenovo, David Hill. This from laptopmag.com.

“In mobile technology, slim and light is a grail that’s forever receding, because what was last year’s impossibly trim is today’s status quo. This year, Lenovo has set the pace. Hill is the chief designer behind the ThinkPad X300, a laptop that pushes the envelope by literally fitting into it, just like Apple’s MacBook Air. A black yin to Apple’s yang, Hill’s creative risk-taking paved the way to a machine that packs more of the punch business users demand (removable battery, optical drive, built-in mobile broadband) into a remarkably compact and lightweight chassis, setting a new target for the competition.”
