On News24 this morning

I was asked to comment on the inquiry into IT pricing which is under way in Australia at the moment on ABC News24 this morning.

Being a fairly experienced radio pundit, I've developed some habits that need to be avoided when on screen. (Like reading my notes and slouching while talking). ABC News24 is an impressive setup with a surprisingly small number of people producing a 24 hour news service.

The studio has remote controlled cameras "robot cameras" they call them. Everyone is very professional and nice. I brought my daughter along and she took the photo above from the control room. She had a great time and reflected on how a regular viewer of TV doesn't really understand what goes in to that smooth presentation we're used to.

My actual job is iOS programming but hopefully I do a passable job at technology analysis, including on TV.
