Silicon Valley

WOW what a quiet year I have had so far in blogging terms but WOW what a busy year I have had just living!

For the first three months of this year, my partner and I moved to the heart of Silicon Valley in San Jose CA. For two geeks, travelling less than a mile and seeing iconic techie offices was surreal and fantastic. You really feel in the midst of all the innovation with Apple, Google, Adobe, Facebook, Twitter etc etc all on your doorstep.

So for 12 weeks we were in our element.

But it wasn’t all work and no play:

Time to be Sleeping

Last weekend I had the pleasure of travelling to Thurso, Scotland for a film premiere of Time to be Sleeping. Why you may ask…well I was lucky enough to be offered the job of developing the Big Box Network website, the producers of the film.

It is a working progress but I think after an afternoon’s work, the result is not too bad. BigBoxNetwork are an artistic bunch so I know that there will be many future iterations ahead – probably entailing Javascript and AJAX 🙂

We are currently using Distrify, a Glasgow based company, for the distribution of the film. It is a little restrictive to our requirements as 1) we don’t supply and trailer and 2) do not want to offer a streaming option but neither of these exclusions seem to be catered for…?

But like I say, it is a working progress and film distribution is a whole new area for me. But BigBoxNetwork will get there in time for their next film release.

Before I conclude, I have to say thanks to Thurso for such a warm welcome. I last made that long journey to the northern tip of Scotland 17 years ago but I was glad that the locals didn’t make me feel guilty about neglecting them! It is a beautiful part of the country.

So if at all interested please download the film.
