Retro bike light

I'm a big fan of urban biking, having had the privilege of living in Amsterdam and Paris which are both very bike friendly cities for daily commuting. Returning back to NYC, I got a cast off commuter bike from a neighbour, that after considerable work, I got in working order. Given drivers in NYC are nowhere near as aware of cyclists as European drivers, lights are essential. I fitted the crappy old "Fairway Flyer" with a Dutch magneto (aka "dynamo" although that term is strictly incorrect) generator and 6VAC old school chrome light. In practice, the drag on wheel isn't enough to notice given the entire bike is hardly built for speed.

iZotope acquires Imagine Research

The company I have been working with for about 18 months now, Imagine Research has now been acquired by iZotope Inc. based in Boston. This is a great opportunity for us to continue to develop our MediaMined technology, to broaden it's reach and incorporate it into iZotope's future products. For my local friends, I'll continue to be based in NYC.

Jill's video interview with Peter

Jill produced a beautiful interview that we made with my Dad, Peter, first shot after his diagnosis, and Jill rapidly edited it ready for playing at his wake. It was a deeply moving way for Dad to be there for all of the people that loved him.

Mediamined

Mediamined is a project I've been working on together with the great folks at Imagine Research for about a year now. With some help from the U.S. National Science Foundation, we're now making public some of our technology.

My Tribute to Dad

This is the tribute I presented with my sister Gaye at my father, Peter John Smith's funeral:

I'd like to talk about Dad's life through some of our personal experiences and recollections of him.

The passing of Peter Smith (8/4/1943 - 29/9/2011)

My father Peter Smith passed away this morning at 10:37am at Kalamunda hospital. Thankfully I was able to be with him, my sister Gaye, and mother Dorothy at the time of his passing, which was peaceful. His condition had deteriorated very rapidly and thankfully this kept his suffering to a minimum. Thank you all for your kind wishes.

Createasphere conference

A heads up that I will be on a panel at the Createasphere Digital Asset Management Conference entitled Is Your DAM REALLY Ready for Audio & Video Files? This will be a great opportunity to discuss some of the work that Imagine Research has been working on over the last year.
