I was talking to a friend earlier today about video chats and why they don’t work. She said she really didn’t like to do video chats. Actually, come to think of it, I don’t really know many people that like to video chat. I am a refugee of Generation X. I don’t know anyone in GenX that actually enjoys video chatting. Face time is irreplaceable. I mean time that is spent face-to-face, not Apple’s FaceTime.
Today I had the honor of putting together the first “real” video podcastfor The DVD Marquee, a DVD/movie podcast site run by Jeffrey Rosado. Those of you who know me very well know that I’ve been dreaming of putting together a new mediacompany. Jeff, a longtime friend of mine, shares this dream. He had the notion to fire up a quick video podcast for the Oscarsthis year and, despite the extremely tight deadline, he managed to land equipment and a location.
I’ve pretty much posted this everywhere I have a presence, but that’s because I’m just plain seriously proud. My son has written his first story. He wanted to share it with everyone on the video camera, so here away we went. I think my son may have a future in vlogging. This is the same video that is posted on the family site and podcast, www.porkbuns.org.
