Everest Webcast a SuccessChris Valentine, Thursday 13 October 2005 | Annotate
Intrepid Italian mountaineer Lorenzo Gariano (ex-KMi plant life guru) made a successful and popular presentation on the evening of Wednesday 12th October to an invited audience of around 45, also recorded and webcast using KMi's Stadium system. Lorenzo is to repeat his trip to Everest in the spring of 2006 in the hope, this time, of achieving the summit. KMi provided Lorenzo with a Thuraya satellite phone with which he recorded an audio blog. Next year, the team are hoping to provide additional reporting facilities including still images and perhaps video, providing we can find hardware that can withstand the extreme conditions.
