Enviu TV is Up & Running (beta)


I'm happy about this one; I've been videoblogging for almost two years now and had lots of fun with it. It's about the joy of creating content, and the excitement of exploring new distribution systems. The potential of new media is huge, so I proposed to my colleagues at Enviu to start Enviu TV; an internet video channel on innovation, sustainability & entrepreneurship.

Today, Enviu TV is possible thanks to people like Just Boon, our creative director (high-energy dude) and a group of cool interns from Dutch media schools. This is our first production, an official video for the Sustainable Dace Club & Club Watt. Currently, we're working towards a regular program. I'll keep you informed.

Featuring: Jules Deelder, Ted Langenbach, Andrea Moreira Santos, Denis van Leeuwen, Daan Roosegaarde, Stef van Dongen, Michel Smit, Aryan & Willem Tieleman, and many more.

Meeting Loic Le Meur at Picnic 08


This year I had for second time the opportunity to attend PICNIC, the cross-media conference held in Amsterdam's Westergasfabriek. The people of ON i ON ComunicaciĆ³n & Infonomia TV made possible for me to enjoy good presentations and meet interesting people (thanks Doris, Victor, & Silvia!) So, I had a chat with Loic Le Meur from Seesmic, and it was great!

I've got to know about Loic when he was starting Seesmic and decided to videoblog the entrepreneurial process of starting up a new media company on a series called Seesmic du Jour. Found inspiring the personal approach to the videoseries and how the brand connects with its users and general audience. I'm an ocasional user of Seesmic video service, however, due to Seesmic de Jour I feel great sympathy for a start-up that I saw grow during its firsts months of development.

Loic, thanks for the conversation, and the t-shirts (are fantastic!). It was great meeting you.
