Qunicy Jones, Viewmagazine and SXSW

Been invited to speak at SXSW in March, where Quincy Jones will be delivering a key note. So I have posted this brief interview with Quincy in Soweto, South Africa.

At the bottom of the page are links to Eartha Kitt interview, the late James Brown's right hand man Maceo Parker and that pic of Jay-z with Prince Charles which I have got some video of that meeting somewhere.

Meanwhile busy day: firstly going through entries for the VJ Awards 2009, researching thesis, assessing Journalism Masters' websites and working up a funding document with my colleague.

We had quite some fun using google's open app word document, which enabled us to share writing an article together, whilst skyping and conferencing with friends in the US, the Ipod blaring, with the occasional sms to punt.

We might take this technology for granted now, but only five years ago, none of this was possible.

Now where's that type writer. Oh yes, I have a type writer somewhere.

If you haven't booked for SXSW, what are you doing?
