Hello World! Today is my first day at George P Johnson. It started in a very eco-friendly manner with a lovely cycle ride along the Basingstoke Canal to Brookwood station, a civilised train ride to Surbiton and then another short ride along to GPJ’s office in Kingston.
So now I have to deliver on my previous point about putting the experience into “Digital Experience”. I’m looking forward to this new challenge, not least of which I actually meet people on a day to day basis! How retro! 🙂
Given that I have Digital in my job title I figured I should arm myself with at least one new gadget to mark the occasion. I’ve treated myself to the A4 Digi-memo, which allows me to take normal pen-based notes in a normal looking leather binder thing, but it sneakily digitises the output as a pdf and even does character recognition (if your writing is neat – which mine isn’t). So there you go – even my day to day notes will be digital.
On a personal note, I had a very photographic weekend. I was second camera for a wedding my wife was photographing, which went well. The tricky bit was to photograph the happy couple releasing some doves! You don’t get a second chance for shots like that. On Sunday I was on a video camera for both services at my church. The team are getting pretty good at shooting and mixing live video now.
So pretty much everything I do, work or play these days is a digital event!
