- in 2009 I costarred in a Discovery Channel technical reality show called “The Colony” 10 of us spent 59 days locked in a warehouse in LA. While the unscripted show was pretty goofy, it did have lots of maker content. I was called “john c” or “the professor” and was responsible for most of the shows more technical builds. The show did well on TV and has been in reruns for several years. . However lame the show was, I still get a huge amount of pleasure from the many emails and city street ids where folks tell me they dug the technical content of the show . I was also invited back to the shows second (and final) season as a technical advisor. The second season was really, really lame 🙂
- I’ve done a fair bit of on camera media work for my job including this series on my IBM’s Smarter Planet project, this press piece on Internet of things, this prime time IBM TV commercial (filmed in Grand Central Station)
