Round Up: Wednesday 12 August 2009
At the end of last week Seetha Kumar wrote on the blog about the series of site MOTs she's introduced since becoming Controller of BBC Online and invited people to comment on h2g2 which is being reviewed tomorrow. To date we have over 100 insightful comments about h2g2 which is fantastic. Expect news on feedback soon.
It's an old post from November 2008 (BBC HD: Picture Quality and Dolby Research) but regular blog contributor Andy Quested (aka "Mr HD") has been replying to some recent comments about HD quality, encoders, fades and the like. Essential reading for all HD aficionados or anyone worried about "obvious blocking on crowd pans".
Muslim Demographics is a YouTube video that uses data to portray the rapid Islamification of Europe and the United States. Radio 4's More or Less made a video in response that's posted on the Radio 4 Blog. Series editor Richard Knight says on the blog:
"So how reliable are the statistics in the 'Muslim Demographics' video? The short answer is: not very. But the long answer is more interesting, because the video is mix of the right, the wrong and the unknowable."
You can now use pound signs, quotation marks and other 'mixed characters' when making comments on BBC blogs. Not a big thing but another step in the right direction.
If there are any subjects you'd like the BBC Internet Blog to cover please let me know in the comments.
Paul Murphy is the Editor of the BBC Internet Blog.
