Announcing what I'm currently working on
If you've ever wondered what goes on behind the scenes for big red button services like Wimbledon, well there's now a little video to watch over on the Press Red Blog.
One of the colleagues has recently been spending some time trying to make some sense out of a series of long lasting code that has been given some slightly odd and meaningless names.
Over on BBCi Labs Blog (yes yes, we know, we know. It's all red button now...) right now, you'll find a little postette from my good self about the wonders of modern technology, which is allowing us to watch a proper, bona fide Freeview signal as transmitted from Selkirk's newly reconfigured TV transmitters, despite us being in London 300 miles away.
Yesterday, BBC Red Button's What's On section was closed down to make way for other new content.
It's been about a week since we actually launched it, but I've been a bit busy of late and I kinda forgot to mention it.
Just a few weeks ago, I didn't think I'd be writing this post. I thought I'd be I'd be writing something more apologetic.
Over on BBCi Labs right now, you'll find my first contribution to that blog.
So Wimbledon started on Monday, and not being a tennis (or indeed a sport) fan, all Wimbledon really means to me is that I miss out on most of my favourite TV shows. The ones that aren't being disrupted by Euro 2008 anyway�
