NAB Roundup 2011

The NAB show is always a daunting and slightly bewildering experience.

BVE Afterparty (Non-technical, contains spoilers)

In case you missed it. The venue sounded perfect. The (Chopper!) Harris suite at Chelsea Football Club. Quickly drafted a short speech for Chopper who was clearly in the frame for a 'Lifetime Achievement' Award or something similar. Alas.
