I wish I had of followed my convictions back in 2000 I suggested building a kit (either case or a camera) that fitted to the side of cycling helmets and was waterproof to my friends who I thought maybe interested as I could see the demand for digital increasing and they all said nah it'd never work, I even put a small display to one of those venture capital business start up things in Darling Harbour and got knocked back by everyone, mainly on the fact I was "too young"! Even at 30 banks knocked me back for being too young! When will I be old enough to be taken seriously?
I don't think GoPro started until 2003 after the people that run it were in Australia.
2 of the friends I suggested it to back in 2000 now own gopro cameras for snowboarding!!! And one even wrote to me to tell me how awesome these things are, when I pointed out that it's exactly what I wanted to do in 2000 he was like "oh yeah, you asked if I could do 3D graphics and animations for it for some display".
