Firstly, Merry Christmas. I know I already wished everyone it earlier in the week, but it makes sense to spread the goodwill cheer again. Anyway, more excitingly and on topic, my client Musion appeared in the Christmas Sunday Times edition.
In the Culture a two page story discussed the potential of holographic projection and included a photo I took during the demo. This is incredible and while there’s no byline, to appear in a national newspaper, even through a client’s work, is very exciting.
Anyway, here’s to 2013.
I can hear you say it already, “where the hell have you been Marco?” OK, maybe not. If anyone’s wondered why I haven’t updated this site as much as I used to, it’s because I’ve been pouring all my energy into my new travel site revealed at the start of December.
It’s going really well. I’m happy with the progress I’ve made, both with the support friends and family have given me, as well as the slow, but steady increases in traffic from Twitter, Facebook and directly.
I’m sticking to the tone I think is best – longer form features with advice and narrative thrown together, as well as traditional content. I’m trying my very hardest to avoid ‘top ten things to see in xxx’ articles because frankly, there are enough of those and they’re lazy writing.
Anyway, if this is all news to you, feel free to visit No Film Left and let me know your thoughts.
Oh, and of course, I wish you a Merry Christmas and a prosperous 2013. I’ll have very exciting news to share soon.
Feeling free is an odd thing to pursue. Free from sadness, surrounded with people who would do anything from you, is a life-affirming situation to find yourself in. Flying through the Tuscan mountains at 3AM listening to Ryan Bingham (who I’ve just discovered), filled with good food, wine and emotion is a moment you’d be happy to experience as your last. Thankfully it’s not.
People say a lot of silly things, but once in a while someone comes along and speaks the truth. The above was said by the man the film 127 Hours is based on – Alan Ralston. I don’t think I’ve ever heard such truer sentiment.
Wow. It was a year ago today. A whole year has passed. The trip’s memory is still fresh in my mind. It changed me forever and more than I’d ever think it could. It set me on track to begin an amazing journey. If you’re interested in what I did for those three weeks a year ago, be sure to check out my diary.
