Meals on wheels

I whipped up this cartoon to mark tonight’s premiere of Eat St., the newest show on Food Network Canada, and yesterday’s launch of Eat St., the companion iPhone app.

The show comes from Paperny Films, the Oscar-nominated production company that gave us The Broadcast Tapes of Dr. Peter. And the app is a partnership between Paperny and Invoke Media (1), with help from Emily Carr University‘s SIM Centre (which is how I found out about it, through Alex (2)).

The Eat St. app lets you find nearby food carts, check out their Twitter feeds (which are kind of huge in the street food world) and check in when you get there. It’s well worth the free download. (And check out stories from Gillian Shaw and Mashable.)

The show airs tonight at 9:30 Eastern, 10:30 Pacific. Congrats to everyone involved!

(1) You may know them from HootSuite, the Twitter-client-turned-social-media-command-centre. You know the way Bond villains usually have giant illuminated maps of the world, showing the real-time progress of their robot armies as they advance on the planet’s nuclear arsenals? Imagine that, except for Twitter, LinkedIn, Facebook and Foursquare.

(2) Alex is in the middle of a fascinating project leading up to her 40th birthday, where she traces the past 40 years of Internet history, looking at one year in each daily post. Go read. (Today’s post is about… gasp!… pornography.)


Hi, Cal and Corey!

Cal, it was great meeting you, too; I hope we'll have a chance to talk again before too long, and meanwhile, congratulations on the show! You could actually hear the mouths watering in the room during the screening.

And Corey, I wish we'd been able to say hi to each other – Alex has told me so much about the work you're doing at Paperny, and it sounds terrific. Hope we'll meet soon!
