Casually eating lunch today and trying to plan out the new website layout when suddenly, a tweet from none other than Sir Richard Branson came flying into my inbox (followed by several more).
After my campaign (here), I wondered if we’d ever hear from the man himself.

It has happened! 😀 Sir Richard Branson has offered up the challenge of seeing just how far I can get a camera down into the dark depths of our Ocean.

A huge challenge for sure and one that will be lots of fun! Slight dilemma however as to whether I postpone this JoshingTalk Space Art balloon or not….I think I might have to!

Thanks to everyone who helped me out with the campaign. With Sir Richard now on board, I want to have as many people as possibly helping me to achieve this challenge. Low costs, low tech- can we produce some good results? What do you think?

In the meantime, my lunch has gone cold after trying to recover from the (happy) shock of the news….

JoshingTalk Submersible – the project has begun.

  1. I can help get you down there and here's a hint: You do what you've already done, only in reverse.
    After that you have Mr. Branson's full attention, and I can help you win the Google Lunar X Prize. I am dead serious.

  2. Congratulations Josh! It is exciting and inspiring to read about this accomplishment of yours. I too have a yearning to explore and experiment with the ways we can use emerging technology. I started a video production business with a dream that it'll help lead me to my dreams of exploration. It in itself has been a journey of exploration. If you would let me give you some advice. Keep at striving for you dreams. Don't let external forces extinguish your will. You decide when it is over and when it has just begun. Chose who you allow to be influence you, and draw out the best in them.

    You do what you've already done, only in reverse.

  4. Hi Pete!
    Thanks for your message and support. It's great to see lots of people enjoying the projects. 🙂

    I understand where you are coming from with the reverse roles and would like to implement that….I've just got to get the new website design done first!
    Nearly there….

    Have a good day!
