A short video I made documenting the launch of the Pervasive Media Cookbook is now on Vimeo…

The Pervasive Media Cookbook is a Hackspace meets Jamie Oliver mash-up where art and engineering mix to inspire entry level producers to get involved with the new world of location based media experiences. It promotes the emerging field of Pervasive Media by showing how 12 innovative experiments were made.
