VIDEO: Let’s get it started…

I sympathize with in-flight entertainment and connectivity (IFE&C) players. More often than not, they make overly ambitious timelines for bringing a new system or service to market, and we journalists tend to give them heck for it.

Mary Curlers.JPGI sympathize because I’ve seen my own deadline to video blog or “vlog” slip way to the right. I’ve been meaning to do this for quite some time, but one thing or another seemed to get in the way. This is my first effort at vlogging.

Like every first effort, there are things that still need to be ironed out or changed (like my hair colour, for example. Dear God! Just be thankful the rollers are out). But stay tuned to this space. It’s 2009 - the year of in-flight Internet (finally!). And we’re just getting started…

    Hey Mary, I really the like the video format, it’s a welcome break from having to read text off my LCD monitor. Any way, this morning I was doing research on another topic when I stumbled across something interesting. If you remember this past fall you did that awesome piece on 787 lightning protection. My original question too you was, how is Boeing going to protect the aircraft and passengers with out a metal Faraday cage like on a conventional passenger aircraft. You also reference a patent that used titanium plates.

    As it turns out there is a brand new type of carbon fiber called “bucky paper”. This is actually some pretty exciting stuff as the carbon nanotubes actually conduct electricity. So an aircraft that utilized this material as its first outer layer would realistically have a Faraday cage. Not to mention that it is as strong as IM7 carbon fiber and thirty percent lighter.

    Here are the relative links, http://www.buckypaper.com/2008.htm

    Here is the background info on, it’s an awesome documentary called “Molecules with Sun Glasses.”

    Nice work Mary. Wonderful to see and hear you at the same time. Too cool!
    However… what happened to our fabulously famous red head hottie?? I’m speechless, ok not really but stunned, yes.

    Thanks so much, guys. The hair was an experiment gone awry. I’m working to correct it :)
