Video Reciprocity

[blip.tv ?posts_id=707619&dest=15981]

Reciprocity is defined as a sense of mutual obligation people may feel toward each other. One way that anthropologists try to understand different social relationships is to examine the kinds of reciprocity that individuals or members of social groups have toward one another. Among video bloggers, do you feel a sense of reciprocity to watch and comment on their videos? Why or why not?

A Video Summit

[blip.tv ?posts_id=687443&dest=15981]

This is a video blog I made to highlight some important themes that emerged from the DIY 24/7 video summit held at USC. The event spanned three days and included screenings of many different genres, academic panels, and hands-on workshops. I include some conversations I had with a few of the curators and participants. For more information see: http://www.video24-7.org/
I encourage people to check out the full videos, including the Open Youth Networks project on YouTube that Mindy Faber is heading up. See: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=lfJd0Q8HjPw

The Digital Dojo

[blip.tv ?posts_id=682259&dest=15981]

The Digital Dojo is a very interesting place in which video blogging events are held to help people understand the many aspects of making and distributing video. One I attended was one of the “Super Happy Vlog House” events, held at various places in the United States. Are there SHVH events elsewhere in the world? I always enjoy going and learning about technical aspects of video making. I think the Dojo is great and Markus and Alicia are always so warm and welcoming to video bloggers of all levels. It is a beautiful place that has a peaceful atmosphere.
