Rae at 3CR Community Radio 855 AM in Melbourne

On Saturday, we were interviewed by 3CR Community Radio 855 AM in Melbourne. Peter Krausz and Melinda O’Connor from the Media Moves program interviewed us about Autumn Gem and our upcoming screening tonight at RMIT University. I’ve been interviewed before on radio, but this was Rae’s first time. I thought we did a pretty job, though I’ll have to listen to the podcast to confirm!

With one radio interview under our belt, we’re looking forward to our second! Tomorrow morning, we’ll be heading to the Melbourne ABC Radio station for the Life Matters show. We hear that this program is comparable to NPR’s All Things Considered!

Here are some photos from our radio interview at 3CR Community Radio 855 AM.

Autumn Gem for the iPad wins the Future of Publishing Award at the inaugural iPadDevCamp!

Autumn Gem for the iPad introduces the incredible story of Modern China’s first feminist, Qiu Jin. Drawing on the innovative and interactive features of the iPad, users can learn about Qiu Jin’s efforts in the Women’s Movement in China and her role in overthrowing the Qing government.

Many thanks to Ivan Torres and Dominic Tham from XBureau in Orange County for their work in developing the application. In true BarCamp tradition, we met randomly on Friday night, hit it off, and developed a complete working and award-winning prototype in two days! With the award — which was sponsored by Promote-A-Book — comes a free iPad, which we’ll be giving to them. We couldn’t have done it without them! Richly deserved, guys!

Here’s a screenshot of the upcoming application, which we will be getting onto iTunes App Store soon!
