Thoughts from author: Joe at innocent

return of the consumer cam

Each year we hold an AGM (a grown up meeting) at Fruit Towers. We document the day ourselves via our blog and Twitter and so on but we thought it'd be nice if those people who couldn't come along to our AGM in person could see what the day was like from a punter's point of view, so to speak. So last year we worked with some very clever people at the Really Interesting Group to create the world's first consumer cam.

Here is an early mock up of what we thought it might look like.

Consumer cam high tech
In the end it looked way more high tech. Loads more sellotape.

Luke and cons cam

Luke wore it last year. He said it was 'a bit hot, but really good'. And when Luke says something is a bit hot, but really good, you know you're on to a winner.

We asked our followers on Twitter if they'd like to wear it this year, and Jack said he'd be delighted to. Here he is, looking delighted.

Jack the lad
You can read more about the consumer cam here, but if you'd like to see the camera in live action, from the top of a delighted Jack's head, be sure to head to our special website here, where pictures from inside Fruit Towers will upload live every couple of minutes from 11am on Saturday 8th October.

win a pair of tickets to the peace one day concert

We're giving away 20 tickets to the Peace One Day Celebration concert at London's O2 arena on 21st September.

POD Celebration concert

For those that don't know, Peace One Day (POD) is a non-profit organisation founded by filmmaker Jeremy Gilley. Jeremy thinks and acts big. The campaigning work of POD led to UN member states adopting an annual day of global ceasefire and non-violence on 21 September - Peace Day.

For Peace Day 2012, POD are calling for a Global Truce, what is hoped will be the largest reduction in global violence in recorded history and we're hugely proud to be founder sponsors of the Gobal Truce 2012 initiative. You can show your support by joining Global Truce 2012 online

Peaceful banana gun
The Peace One Day Celebration concert on Peace Day 21 September at the O2 arena will feature artists Yusuf (Cat Stevens), Eliza Doolittle, Youssou NDour, Affroreggae, English National Ballet and Flawless. Speakers will include Denise Lewis OBE, POD ambassador Jude Law and POD founder and filmmaker Jeremy Gilley. The concert launches the 365-day countdown to the Global Truce.
