Man from del monteWe’re all looking forward to the Big Chip Digital Awards which is coming up on the 24th of May.

In previous years the dress code has been more formal, but due to the nature of the industry, the dress code has been relaxed somewhat.

Encouraged to ‘dress to impress’, we’re left debating what to wear for such an event.

Any fashion tips would be more than welcome, so please leave a comment if you have any suggestions.

To add some colour to this post, here’s a video from YouTube, which I must stress is completely unrelated…

    The Man from Del Monte says “Here’s your P45?”

    Anyhoo, we’re all quite excited about this years event. PushOn is up for the “Best Rising Star” via “Our Jamie” VirtuAffinity is up for best Commercial Website via Didsbury Magazine. http://www.didsbury

    This means we can go out and make fools of ourselves. The less creative in our organisation will be wearing DJs but the stylish amongst us will be wearing something a little more daring!

    What you wear isn’t that important. What’s more important is what time you turn up. We arrived half an hour late last year, just as the free champagne ran out. Gutted.

  • Simon Wharton

    Our planning will be immaculate as ever. The Free ale factor is catered for. It’s more the getting home after that worries us.

    So this is me messing about with mobile blogging. Sat in a restaurant with a 3g connection via pda. We’re tinking about live blogging the Big Chip. Maybe I need totest flickr for picture blogging. Though there is clearly some risk of pictures while drinking.
    Might have a go with Twitter which till now has seemed pointless in the extreme

    forget being scruffy, bring back the best new rising star back to Urmston

    So now I’ve got twitter working, it seems possible to integrate twitter into the blog. Though I still don’t get Twitter, I thought it;’s worth doing a meaningful experiment, like when we’re out on the lash and rambling inanely.

  • Jamie Clouting

    At least with twitter we can only write 140 characters worth of offensive posts!

    Although I think it will be a good test to see if we can get the content out and if anyone will follow it! Can twitter be integrated into the rss feed?

  • Simon Wharton

    I don’t think I’d want to output Twitter via RSS as I think if you’re going to feed info to a subscriber base for a blog, you need to make it meaningful.
    I think if you follow a twitter thread, you’ve got to expect crap
