This is an interesting “Geeks Eye” behind the scenes look at the Target Chip Ganassi Indy Car Team.
Robert Scoble grabs a cam-corder and takes a look at the technology the team use including Tablet PC’s, Microsoft software like One-Note, Excel, Office and web collaboration. It’s not all compu-speak as there is a bunch of interesting racing related discussion with team members of the likes you just don’t see on TV (why not?).Unfortunately there is only a brief shot of their Kiwi Driver Scott Dixon.
It’s a big download, 256 MB, so don’t try this on dial-up but well worth a look for car racing geeks (like me!).
