Following on from here, I became intrigued about who the star of the "show" was. I just made out his name (Andy Jordan) from the video and sent him an email.
Whilst searching for his email address (this was not easy), I came across several of his "vlogs". Vlog? Yeah, like video/blog = vlog which makes Andy Jordan a vlogger for the Wall Street Journal.
Check out the vlog. The closing seconds say it all really !!!
Call me a bluff old traditionalist, but on a flight (esp. a long one) some polite chat, good food, music, TV/multimedia - no problem, but "instant messaging" other passengers??? I can only assume that whoever dreamed this one up is not a regular (if at all) user of public transport.
