View Full Version : Thanks to Mikko!

Hey, just want to take a chance to stand and applaud our own Mikko Wilson for some excellent IBC coverage. Mikko was the man on the street, giving us feedback on all the new releases and even scoring two total exclusives, the first footage ever posted from a Canon G1 and the first footage ever posted from a Sony V1E!

He worked tirelessly, sending text-message updates from the show floor and taking pictures, interviewing company reps and getting us the "straight dope" on the new releases. Then he'd write up those reports and post 'em at night, and the rest of us who couldn't make it to IBC were able to keep up on all the latest.

It's this kind of dedication and effort that makes DVXUser a better place. Thanks Mikko for making DVXUser a better place!

What more can I say, it's all been said already. But I'll say it again...thanks for your tireless efforts at getting us the most up-to-date and relevant information in quick timely manner. It was great to get the info, almost like being there...but without the high cost of airfare, hotel, taxi's and eating out :)

Good job :thumbsup:

Larry ... bet's Mikko has to buy a bigger hat.

LOL :grin:

Ok, enough letting this thread grow. :evil:

Thanks all for your gratitude, nice to know it was worth it. It's a pleasure to be able to help give back to the fantastic community that is DVXuser.com. I had a great time at IBC this year and I'm glad I was able to bring some of that to those who couldn't be there. I expect to see many of you at NAB.

I still have a little more stuff to post as I wade through the information & photos I got at the show. Tune in for a final write up article this weekend.

For those of you interested in the numbers, here's some stats from this year's coverage:

I posted 20 threads about IBC, with a total of 21600 views and 367 responses to date
I took 923 photographes takeing up just over 3GB of space.
I posted 457MB of world exclusive video from 2 new cameras.
I made 17 news updates by cellphone from the show floor, resulting in 51 alert e-mails beeing sent.
In the past week my website had 3645 visitors, with a record 1092 on Tuesday. - My average is about 35 on a normal day.
During that time my website served 27259 page downloads, with a record 10714 on Monday. - My average is about 90 on a normal day.
I also sent and recived 21 private messages and 8 e-mails regarding IBC.That's a total of 48743 communications in a week. :shocked:


Thanks again all, you've been a wonderfull audience. I'll be here all week, and don't forget to tip your waitress. :thumbsup:

- Mikko ... takes a bow, and leaves the stage in search of a bigger hat.
