Momentshowing: We’re going to India

Momentshowing: We’re going to India: Jay is going to videoblog a conference in India in Dharamsala where the Dalai Lama and his governement in exile are using wireless tech to communicate.

“Ryanne and I got a grant to help make a videoblog for the AirJaldi Summit in Dharamsala.
This is where the Tibetan “government-in-exile” is located headed by the Dalai Lama. The conference is all about how to “empower communites through wireless networks”.

The Tibetans have created a very sophisticated wireless infrastructure using inexpensive/used euqipment. The interesting thing is not just that they can communicate with the outside world….but that they can communicate with EACH OTHER over basically a huge intranet. The conference will help spread their experience so other techically-developing societies can use the web effectively.

It’s exciting for me to try to help spread the idea of videoblogging in cultures usually out of the Western conversation. Imagine if the Dalai Lama used a $200 camera to post a video each day to It’s so simple. The revolution is here…now people just got to find out about it.”

Good luck Jay!

I’m selling my books

I am selling a bunch of books, and instead of selling them one by one (which would be a drag), I’m selling them in stacks.

Just email me at petervandijck at gmail dut com and it’s yours.

The rules:

  • Any reasonable offer accepted.
  • You have to come pick them up (129Street and Madison, close to a bunch of subways)
  • You can’t pick and choose books, it’s the whole stack or nothing.

A lot of these books are pretty good, I’m not selling them because I didn’t enjoy them :)
