Formula 1 raked in the audiences over the weekend. Andrew Shorten from Adobe has a great comparison between our efforts using Flash in 2003, and this year's offering. It's quite a contrast.


While "iPlayer changed my media life!" sounds an awful lot like something that you'd find on the front of a women's magazine, we're always pleased to read that the catch-up service is so popular.


Project Canvas is back in the news -- BBC IPTV director Richard Halton discussed the on-demand platform at a conference last week. From PaidContent:

One of the real drivers of Canvas, said Halton, is so the Beeb doesn't have to keep re-purposing and re-formatting its content for every medium, from mobiles to PCs to Macs. "In itself, it's a fantastic achievement you can watch iPlayer on a Nokia N96... But it demonstrates the challenge we face in working across multiple platforms." Though it is technologically-minded, the Beeb is not a technology company, Halton said, and would rather spend its money on creating new content.


If you want to keep up with all iPlayer developments, you'd be wise to follow @BBCiPlayer on Twitter.


James Cridland is looking forward to the soon-to-be-launced new Radio 4 site.

Steve Bowbrick, now editor of the Radio 4 blog, has posted this snapshot of 24 hours worth of Twitter chat about the station.

Expect much more Twitter chat when the Radio 4 website is relaunched tomorrow.


Regular readers will know all too well that we are indeed a harried and miserable bunch here, but Nick Cohen put it all into words in yesterday's Observer. By means of a rebuttal, BBC director of Global News Richard Sambrook came along with this post.

Dave Lee is co-editor, BBC Internet blog, BBC Online, BBC Future Media & Technology.
