Best Tube San Diego

Things didn’t go as I had planned that day. I had a topic all set to go. But when I got to the meet up I felt kind of mellow and had a more experiential time, rather than trying to accumulate a lot of interviews. I guess I wanted to spend time with people I have been meeting at the gatherings, and that is what the footage reflects. I’m always amazed at what the footage “tells you.”

Asking about Analytics

How much do you rely on analytics? Do you use them for professional reasons, or for your own interest? If you don’t use them, why is that?

Picturing Information

This is an interactive exercise!
(But shouldn’t watching all media be interactive?!)

Tree Spirit

While out walking one day I saw this face placed into a tree. It made me wonder, who put the face there? Why did they do this? It seems to have a kind of mysterious air about it. But what could it mean?
What do you think?

Tesla Coil

This is a Tesla coil I filmed at the Griffith Observatory in Los Angeles. Invented by Nikola Tesla, it is defined as “a step-up transformer with an air core; used to produce high voltages at high frequencies.” Source: http://wordnet.princeton.edu/perl/webwn?s=tesla%20coil
For a definition of Tesla coils see: http://www.thefreedictionary.com/Tesla+coil
And yes, I am aware that the credits run longer than the video!

Jazzy Flowers

On a recent trip to Philadelphia I noticed a sign for the Flower Show. My first thought was, “Hey, that sounds great for my video blog!” So here it is, some scenes from the show. The video features Creative Commons-licensed music from the Eternal Jazz Project. To learn more about these and other artists see: magnatune.com

Dance Anywhere

I really enjoyed hearing the philosophy expressed by danceanywhere’s channel. I’m always interested in different types of art and the energy and joy that can be derived from experimenting with some of its boundaries.

Video Reciprocity

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

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
