Remote Tasting, or: We Brought Mike to Lunch

We wanted a way to include our B|P homie Mike in our holiday lunch, but he works from London now, and flying him out just for lunch seemed a tad much. So instead, we decided to bring him with us remotely. All we needed was one laptop with a big-ass battery, one EVDO revA card, two skype accounts w/ the new MPEG4 video codec, one booster to place at his chair so the laptop would be at table level, and one friendly waitress at the Slow Club, in San Francisco.

Mike and his wife Natalie ate Indian food at the same time we ate our lunch, and we could barely hear what he said during lunch but it was overall awesome. Seriously. Full set of photos on flickr

    With Dole you possibly can watch the media filter work in realtime
    to find out which aspect the media is taking part in on.
    People speaking about China have their extensive, deep,
    usually multigenerational links to the PRC which end in money flows,
    energy, influence, and status hid or downplayed
    within the media.
