Iterating the Kit

Transition. It can be fun. Frustrating. Overwhelming. Invigorating. All those and many other things. For me it’s always about the next step. No one I know is more critical of me than me. One of the “criticisms” I hear – in a total teasing, smack-down, weirdly motivating and one-upsmanship way – is that I, and

The Steadicam of Life

This little video blew my mind in so many ways. I don’t expect it to blow the minds of very many others – or maybe it will – I don’t know. First, some background. The Techcast Focus Network (TTFN) is a group dedicated to informing would-be broadcasters about technology that delivers the highest bang for

oEmbed, Can You Hear Me?

We’ve arrived at the final post (for now) on using WordPress embeds (see part 1 and part 2). This post fills in the gap to something that is obviously missing in our oEmbed examples. We saw the popular media sites like Vimeo, YouTube, Flickr, Slideshare, and even Twitter all had the capability of simply copying and pasting a URL to the

iMacs for Student Editing

While we’re not quite ready for our Convergence Center yet, with the help of our head librarian and some funds from the state, we will soon establish a space in the Simpson Library to facilitate video editing. We are going to go with iMacs for the simple reason that PC video editors are just dogs.

Google Earth Fun

I decided not to wait until Friday to have some fun. All of us in DTLT are acting a bit shell-shocked to be back after Thanksgiving num-nums. I started the week by going through the process of switching hosting for this site. I’m moving to MediaTemple for all of my business and personal hosting. In

What Color is Your Bumbershoot?

Before I get to the subject of this post, I need to say something. If anyone ever asks you what Twitter is good for, ask them if anyone has shared something inspiring before. It happens often for me. If it doesn’t happen for you, maybe you need new people to follow. Twitter is exactly where
