Have facebook cracked live video, I think they may have created a compelling offering. Here in the UK we have a national radio station LBC using it to broadcast live interviews. Today we've had a EU referendum and they're currently doing a live feed as the results come in over the next 8hrs. Commenting seems to be engaging live and also works well viewing after the event, interlinking through the broadcast.

If you already like pages that use live feeds then facebook does a good job of making you aware of the most relevant broadcasts in your news feed. Discovery is lacking but I've not see any of the competition find a way of doing it well.

I wonder if it would be a good avenue for Twit to trial, probable not full broadcasts of programmes but maybe similar to LBC in switching on the live feed for maybe a 10-15min segment of a programme, planned out when an ad is in the middle.

By the way the link is to the live feed of the EU in/out vote results, is it view able worldwide ?

The joys of interpretation
In our house we call it a visitation from the Voodoo Prince . You know, when something completely inexplicable happens. When you have ruled out all other explanations, what you are left with must be the truth, however improbable. Today I spent most of the d...

10 years today since I started geocaching, back then there were no smartphones and gps gadgets were relatively expensive.  First attempts were just relying on the OS map and clues taking me up in the hills, it was darn hard, 7 weeks later I finally found my first geocache with a local drive by with an easy clue - I was hooked and put the order in for a gps from America. 

10 years later totted up 405 finds mostly over the lake district, finding hidden gems and devilish caches in caves, down water logged tunnels, up many trees, the odd puzzle (not keen on puzzle caches), attempting to be first to find newly placed geocache and finding like many to have been beaten to them by a local fell runner.

My 1st find with map 27/06/2005 - Flannagan and Allen (Cumbria) - http://coord.info/GC4FCB
My 1st find with GPS 09/07/2005 - Castle Hill - http://coord.info/GCNQ29
FTF 29/01/2006 - Lift Thine Eyes to the Hills - http://coord.info/GCT69X
Favourite series - Quest for the Ring of Power - http://coord.info/GCYJTC
longest walk (12 mile / 15 caches) - Uncle Monty's Country Cottage - http://coord.info/GC1WDE3
Most memorable - Secret Cave (Trail to the Cave) - http://coord.info/GCWGQK
Most devious - It's a lock out - http://coord.info/GCWZ03 (4 hours carrying a large toolbox over fell finding keys to unlock all the padlocks)

Bread of Heron - high, wide and handsome
Here we are then: 2015 already and Bread of Heron still hasn't opened its doors. "So what's been occurring?" as Ness in Gavin and Stacy would say. Why no friendly huddle in the shepherd's hut at the mill every week? As any bread maker knows, things take tim...

Is google demoting G+?

Normally when I go to the google homepage I can click on my name and it will take me to G+, but now it not clickable and the hover message says looking for G+ then look in the google apps list.

This has been covered around the Web. No one is exactly sure why this happened, but hopefully it's for the better. You can now access it via the 9 squares.

Did the windows 10 announcement go well? Reading all the comments on the various feeds it seems there are a lot of confused people, seeing a lot of the following queries:-

"Free for 1st year but do I then have to pay a subscription after that?"

"What if you're not entitled to the free upgrade, how much will Win10 be?"

"Are there different versions for the PC?"

"They say it'll be valid for the life of the device, what if my motherboard fails, will I have to buy a new OS licence?"

 True, but with M$, there's few fine ways to limit and manage what they gather on you. Plus, if you've already paid full price, you expect a full package for your OS bundled apps, not avenues for getting more sneaky commercialization inside.

We've not heard back from you so have gone ahead and removed this post, it's simply too cryptic or insider stuff, sorry, we don't think that it belongs here.
