Compelling Audio: an Extreme Blogger

Be sure to give the recently re-featured talk by Ben Saunders over at IT Conversations a listen. Ben is the ultimate in extreme bloggers – he updated his site from the North Pole, and kept his last expedition up to date with some makeshift electronic gear that he was flat-out advised by the manufacturers would *NOT* work in the arctic.

It’s a truly compelling story of his solo skiing adventure across the arctic ice, on a race against the weather – there were some good stretches where the ice had already melted. This is also first hand evidence of the effects of global warming – sounds like in a few years nobody will be able to do what he did because there won’t be *any* ice.
