Jem’s Vortex Cannon

New from the MySociety genii:, capsule the curiously-capitalised PlaceOpedia. Think Google Maps ? Wikipedia. Brilliant. Except that, as I write, all the links read

  1. I prefer Jem’s style in these videos to his performance in the main show. OK, I understand that he’s excited and high on adrenaline when it’s all happening. I like that, I really do, but there’s something more endearing and engaging on a deeper level with the calmer delivery.
    I’m glad BGTT are doing both. Get the hook on TV when time is, of necessity, tight but add another level on the website, too.
    I also love the fact that he delivers his lines with greasy hands and dirty fingernails. We know that Jem is the tinkerer, not just screen candy. Last night, a new generation of kids were watching and wanting to grow up to be Jem or they have just discovered themselves a new crush.
    (as an aside – the close ups sucked. I want to see the rubber base, dammit; and don’t show me the clunky zoom, thanks)
