In need of a large dose of Geospatial intelligence imaging & analysis, then this is it. Next time someone says, I can see my house on Google Earth, then get send them here. The Universe is where the stars come out - and for me that means +DigitalGlobe and other ones like them..

Vital message told through a brilliantly made video using video, stills and background b roll. The quality of the production surpasses that of mainstream media in such a way we can all learn from it. +Newcastle University is a highlight for me, on every single upload..

For me, there are three area 1 feet & hands 2 eyes & ears and 3 seeing through walls - in this case, using something like +DigitalGlobe to visualise what's going on, not in the next street, but the next country or anywhere on the planet. The Digital Globes of this world will be unsung heroes on getting us information, that we are speedy to take for granted. We shouldn't.

I love +DigitalGlobe and what they do. But hey, this voice over could easily be the opening sequence to some futuristic Tom Cruise movie. Not forgetting the immense value of Crisis Response ..

The brilliant +Julia Galef should make more videos like this, just love them. I say that as we, as people, need to slow down and think more carefully that run around chasing shadows and ghosts.. Do I say that as rational, critical or emotionally? Good question..

Be careful with online prices (at Tesco Direct) compare to instore prices on larger items ie a TV. We had issues which ended up with a price haggle, thankfully Duty Manager agreed with us in the end, and gave us the Online Price.

On passing by the yard, I was totally impressed by the display of freshly cut timber posts. The smell was excellent too. Here are a few photos, I would certainly loot at more uses to these posts, sure as a fence, but from what I've seen they deserve to be hung on the wall as an art exhibit :)

Benefit have moved to a brand new Head Office in the Marconi Building (former New Street Works), I've attached a comp slip with the new address. It was lovely to see some of the radio memorabilia on display - so important as from 1912 this was the first ever purpose built radio factory. Visitors to Benefit Cosmetics should be aware 'Marconi Building' is also another the name of one of the local Anglia Ruskin University faculties, so make sure you arrive at New Street :)
