iPhone

Been an incredible amount of coverage of everything iPhone in the past couple of days. The Internets have been going crazy. It’s kind of rekindled some conversations we’ve been having for a while about real-time pics and video uploaded whilst you’re out at a venue. Imagine being able to see _right now_ how busy/cool/available a place is. I guess in a sense, a kind of mobile webcam, but in serious volume!

Anyway, the iPhone really probably doesn’t add too much to what a number of phones can probably do in that regard (save Wi-Fi – if the venue has it), so it’s something that’s back on our agenda. Need some thought on how to ensure the media is tagged to the right place .. but proper net browsing capabilities make that easier.

Watch this space .. we have a few months until iPhone launch anyway 🙂

Hello, and Happy New Year to you all!! I trust you had a good time over Christmas and the New Year. Karim and I were in Sydney, whilst Steve was relaxing in Portugal and Craig was deported from France due to lack of snow. Last heard of near London getting very drunk 🙂

It’s not all been fun and games though – there have been some changes to the site – and a couple that we need some help with.

Every venue now has an associated picture gallery. So if you got pics from the inside or outside of the venue, mad nights out there that you’d like to share, please add them. To do that, just go to the venue concerned, click ‘add your own pictures’ and then select whether you’d like to upload a picture, or link to an externally hosted picture (maybe you already have an account at somewhere like Flickr). You can also add a short comment so we know what it was you were doing when the picture was taken 🙂

The second thing is the ‘location video’. If you click on the ‘map’ tab when looking at a venue, it’s now possible to link to a video hosted on Google Video or YouTube (currently). We’d like to get some good location shots so that it makes it easier for people to find the venue. A quick pan of the local area, the walk from the station or main intersection – that kind of thing. There’s instructions available, and a sample video too.

Thanks for your contributions so far since the site came back alive again. We still haven’t done any form of publicity, other than this blog, until we’re happy with the quality, but please tell your friends about it 🙂

Cheers for now!
