Woop! Woop! Arcane technology alert!
I want to watch something on TV. I don’t have a TV, nor video cassette player.
So, the plan is to find someone with a TV tuner card, a hard disk, and some form of programmable controller, like a PC. And then ply them with beer in return for a digital copy.
Who wants beer?
It’s “Paul Callaghan Presents” on Stratos Television (Freeview Ch 21 and Sky 89) on Monday 19 May at 7.00 p.m, and, I assume, for nine more mondays after. It’s in-depth interviews with prominent New Zealand business people and commentators, including Richard Taylor, Weta Workshop; Stephen Tindall, The Warehouse; Neville Jordan, Endeavour Capital; Di McCarthy, The Royal Society of New Zealand; Michael Chick, Tait Electronics; Mike Daniell, Fisher and Paykel Healthcare; Rod Oram, financial journalist; Bill Denny, Proacta; Andrew Coy, Magritek. That’s quite a few of the more interesting people in NZ.
