Maybe someday I'll be brave enough to post a video blog or a video of me singing or something. Yeah........... cool vid by the way. I thought you were in your kitchen!!! ;)

Very good stuff! :) I'm hoping to use more of this technology in the future as well. I like writing blog posts, because I can stop and take time to think about what I'm saying, but on the other hand I also like shooting straight from the heart, which is what I do via video.

It works! I am on wi fi in a coffee shop and just shared your little test video with those sitting around me. Also the header photo on your blog looks awesome!!!!

Em--You should try it! If I can do it, anyone can. And yeah, this office (used to be a cute kitchen).

Joel--The immediacy of video is really appealing to me. But you're right, writing is more conducive to thoughtful reflection. But since I try to keep my thinking to a minimum, I shouldn't have a problem.

I don't know how often I'll use video for one reason--some people that I know read regularly have dial-up connection. Video is tough for them, and I don't want to lose connection with them...

Glad you like the picture. And please apologize to the people at the coffee shop for me...

Wow! That works. Now you're making me feel more guilty that I haven't figured out how to Skype or Live Messenger.

Richard J said...

BN--You really have no excuse. I have the technical aptitude of a gibbon, and I'm figuring this stuff out...

Emmychka said...

Not too sound truly ignorant, but what is a gibbon?

Richard J said...

Em--Don't worry about sounding ignorant around here. If I worried about that, I'd have to delete around 95% of my posts.

A gibbon is a small ape. Here's more info than you'll ever need about them:
