A good day to take the Leica and the new 75 mm Sumicron out for a shoot. In the morning I met up with Caro Bonink for another lesson how to shoot reporter style. Then Roderick and I went shopping and as he went off to the circus for his friends birthday, I took the opportunity to go for a gothic lolita photoshoot in the middle of Amsterdam. It was a book presentation and a show with fashion form Mfashion, a specialist Japanese clothing store. Interesting to see Michael Nederlof of Skoeps and Michael Schaap of 'Wat Heet' among many others taking pictures and film of the events....

The first software update for AppleTV is a very nice one, it introduces Youtube. it is not a full fledged as on a computer, but a very good start and indication of what will come in the future. Youtube will be coming to iPhone too, now it is just waiting for that one to come over here...
An interesting gadget day today. Not only did my Leica Summicron 75 mm arrive enabling me to take some shots of Roderick, also my Blackberry 8800 arrived to replace the old model.
From the European media and new media perspective interesting developments took place during our conference call where the alliance of conferences is getting geared up for our meeting on July 3 in Amsterdam, hosted by PICNIC.

Pieter and Anneke celebrated their 25 year anniversary at one of the best locations in Rotterdam, De Maas. Next to a pleasant afternoon at the river, it was great to meet former colleagues from BT and other contacts again. And on a Sunday, traveling to Rotterdam does not take that much time...

It was a couple of years ago since I was in London. The last couple of days I was there to visit the leading digital radio conference taking place at the same time as the mobile tv conference. I did not take the Leica M8 or my Macbook Pro, a unique experience....

The 'class of 24' of the Veronica Radio School graduated today. With a ceremony at the Larixlaan Veronica has delivered a group of new radio makers again. Selection for the next class will take place coming week. One of the events I really feel sorry about to have had to miss was the Radio Bitches Awards earlier this week, also organised by this class. Next time I'll be there!
