Joining BBC Research and Development

April 6, 2011

A couple of months ago I joined the Prototyping team in BBC R&D. It's a great chance to work on cutting edge technologies for broadcast and the web. And a great place to work with some really smart people.

The first thing I've been working on is the fledgling RadioTAG specification, part of the RadioDNS umbrella of technologies. We're looking at adding a button to radios or other radio-receiving devices that will allow a listener to register their interest in a broadcast. Maybe you've heard a track you'd like to listen to again, or you have to leave the house during the Today programme and want to carry on listening where you left off when you reach the office. Interesting stuff.

As my colleague Duncan said, we should all try to blog a little more this year. I've made a start over on our team's blog, but I'm going to try and do so here too.
