Ah, we love seeing what you love to read, what irks you, what you love, what you hate, and everything in between!

Like, for example, whenever I post segments of video that appeared somewhere else in parts, I always throw a shout-out to my favorite Product Manager Brad Schiller so he doesn’t yell at me via email!

Help Us Fund the JimOnLight.com Apps!

David and Jim

David and I have worked so hard to make JimOnLight what it is today.  We’re reaching out into the community to help us keep the JOL apps running!

https://www.indiegogo.com/projects/keep-the-jimonlight-com-mobile-app-running

From David:

If any of you know me – Fox of Jim On Light – I’m a very direct person. I’m not going to be any different here.

I am the guy who makes and keeps the mobile app running. It costs a bit of money to have this outlet available to the world. I’m but one guy with a full-time job and a full-time family to support.

I’m looking for your help in keeping the JimOnLight.com App up and running for the next 5 years. As a bonus if this campaign is fully funded, the app will remain free, become available on the iPad (natively) and become ad-free.

I’m offering you a perk if you fund over $50, of enshrining your name within the app as a supporter. One lucky person will have the opportunity of having their name right under the splash page logo – a la PBS programming thank you’s.

The funding breaks down to $600 per year of operation.

Please help keep us running!

Thank you.

CHAUVET-professional-infocomm-2014-22

Ok, I’m blown away by this fixture, and I want to ask you, the JimOnLight.com readership, for your help in nominating this piece of lighting awesomesauce.  Meet the ROGUE R2 Spot from CHAUVET Professional, a fixture I’ve had the chance to rock on several occasions:

Check out the ROGUE R2 Spot microsite!  http://chauvetrogue.com/rogue-r2-spot.php

It has to be said, I work for CHAUVET Professional as many of you know, but no one asked me to do this or is paying me to do anything.  This is the first moving head I helped to get out into the world, and I am ever, ever so proud to work on this amazing team of engineers, developers, and industry experts.  I truly think that the ROGUE R2 Spot is one bad mamajama — it’s THE bright, quick, accurate, and fully-featured LED moving head gaining traction all over the world.  I’ve been fortunate enough in my career to see and play with pretty much every moving head out there, and the ROGUE series pretty much rocks my face.

GO HERE to nominate the ROGUE R2 Spot for this year’s 2014 Parnelli Indispensable Technology Awards.  I’m hanging my reputation on this one folks, it’s one of the coolest things I’ve ever had the chance to work on, to see born right before my eyes.

GET OUT THE VOTE!  Thanks for playing, everyone!  If all else fails, tell ’em JimOnLight sent you!
