I’m at the ‘Over The Edge’ 2008 Seminar at Beechworth. The conference starts tomorrow and goes for 3 days. Should be a very worthwhile event indeed. We all went out for dinner tonight at the Hibernian hotel.

Paris Rally

November 4, 2007 5:57 pm

On an August morning in 1978, French filmmaker Claude Lelouch mounted a gyro-stabilized camera to the bumper of a Ferrari 275 GTB and had a friend, a professional Formula 1 racer, drive at breakneck speed through the heart of Paris. The film was limited for technical reasons to 10 minutes; the course was from Porte Dauphine, through the Louvre, to the Basilica of Sacre Coeur.

No streets were closed, for Lelouch was unable to obtain a permit.

The driver completed the course in about 9 minutes, reaching nearly 140 MPH in some stretches. The footage reveals him running real red lights, nearly hitting real pedestrians, and driving the wrong way up real one-way streets.

Upon showing the film in public for the first time, Lelouch was arrested. He has never revealed the identity of the driver, and the film went underground until a DVD release a few years ago.

Did eBay steal my idea?

October 20, 2007 10:34 pm

I suppose many of us look back in hindsight and think, “what if…”

I had this thought only today as I was links to my site. In my research I discovered a link from a 1995 NCSA Mosaic web page listing an old site of mine. The page was an idea I had of starting up a site so people could buy and sell online. At the time I didn’t know a small company called eBay was also pursuing a similar idea.

The image below is an excerpt from the actual page. Click the image to view the complete page.
