Pierre informs me that around about 1:30 PM today (Sunday April the 15th), French TV channel France 5 was reporting about Instagram when they showed the Joy of Tech on screen, here, at about the hour mark, (available for the next week or so).

(unfortunately the page uses Silverlight, which sort of works for me, but I all I get is black. Perhaps they have an international IP block on that?)

Neato! Merci Pierre!

I definitely have a working copy of Silverlight (oh that Netflix didn't require it!), but it doens't play hear either. I'm pretty sure it only works in .fr IP space. :/

Pierre has delivered the details of the Joy of Tech appearance on France 5...

Transcript of the context (at about the 53 minute mark):

(first shot)
How are the 30 million Instagram users reacting?

They are not all very happy, in fact, because they are afraid that Facebook could win the property of the photos, they are afraid that the photos posted on Instagram could be moved on
Facebook. (second shot) Indeed Facebook has a reputation of being a bit intrusive towards private data; for that matter on the comic we're about to see we can see that it looks like a control
tower and a security camera (third shot), so some have closed their account and others have put up black photos to express a kind of online grief over Instagram.

(in original French:
Comment réagissent les 30 millions d'utilisateurs d'Instagram?

Ils ne sont pas tous très contents, en fait, parce que ils ont peur que Facebook gagne la propriété des photos, ils ont peur que les phtotos postés sur Instagram soient récupérées sur Facebook.
Facebook est quand même réputé pour être un peu intrusif envers les données privées; d'ailleurs sur la BD qu'on va voir on peut voir que ça ressemble à une tour de contrôle et à une camera de
surveillance, donc certains ont fermé leur compte et d'autres mettent des photos noires pour exprimer une sorte de deuil en ligne sur Instagram.

-- Some verbal tics have been removed)

Thanks Pierre!

(Nice of them to cut the title off our comic! [Mad] )
