Interview with David Irvine Re Restructuring

Dear all, here is a video chat I had with David on Thrusday last week about the state of the company and development for our meetup in the south of the UK. Apologies for the audio quality - David I think you need a new head set!

Thankyou David for your time on the day.

Yeah, that’s definitely some industrial grade obfuscation you’re using there … :wink:

At least the video worked and yes, I am that exhausted :smiley:

Sad about the sound. On the positive side, scottish accent together with bad headsets seems like it could be a new patent for self-encryption. :slightly_smiling_face: (Sorry, did just see I was second on the ball) Is there any way to fix the sound? David you probably need a new headset.

It works well in our hangouts and my presentations I do. Always looking for a decent headset with mic you can easily mute and obviously so, like a boom you put up and it mutes. So important I reckon.

I’m doing my best to transcribe it. Hopefully ready in next couple of days. Will make it a shared doc so hopefully @dirvine will be able to fill in some of the blanks.

I never know what I will say or remember what I did. I prefer things that way :smiley: I will try though

A general feeling I get is that there should be more regular sound checks. Most interviews are good sounding but it seems like a little too high frequency of occurring interviews with less good sound.

Maybe something that can be improved on in the future.

Well, transcribing a West Coast Scottish accent through a sea of white noise is not the easist of tasks for a Sassanach but I think it’s there or thereabouts. Don’t take it as gospel though, as some parts are my interpretation. Where I gave up the text is marked ‘unclear’ (probably the fourth most used word after ‘and’, ‘the’ and ‘whatnot’ :slightly_smiling_face: ).

Well done @JPL I could not have done that and I was there :smiley:

At the [unclear] part at 11.24: “We are very focused on something people can click [something something].” (And now I am beyond tired more than the beyond tired I already was.) But uh yeah this is a nice general summary/transcript to follow along with when more awake.

@JPL you deserve massive :clap: for that. It’s like you created s new SAFE Primer with one hand tied behind your back, wearing a blindfold. I tip my hat :tophat:

EDITED –
I’ve listened to this twice all the way through and then again in fits and starts - I can improve on a few bits but not much. @JPL did a fantastic job to produce that transcript. I’ll start typing the wee extra bits I caught after I get the last pint down the pub.
I will dig in later tonight in an effort to help those who are bereft of a guid Scots tongue in therr heids. – errr, errr those who are bereft of high class signal processing to clean this up. Son #2 is a sound engineer and when he comes back in from his club gig or tomorrow morning, I will get him to run this through his fancy kit and see if we can clean it up any more.

Having said that, it’s still Time our wannabe cultural hegemonists in the rUK admitted defeat. :grin:

I’m not admitting defeat on this but I’m no declaring victory for a few more hours yet…
