So I was invited to another social networking site yesterday. I declined. I need to unplug more lately . Business has picked up and I need to concentrate on doing creative stuff.
I met with my friend Albin yesterday to have breakfast we sat and chatted and caught up. He is an editor and had recently gone to NAB in Las Vegas. We spent some time talking about the red camera and othe topics. The most fun being doing some short films. He has a wacky sense of humor so we maybe a good mix. The bull writers have been busy with Aaron having a baby and Pete getting married soon. So hopefully Albin and a few other friends can do some creative work soon.
When we got back to my house I wanted to show him ustream. I was hinking the possibilities were endless with this new streaming solution. We watched Chris Pirillo who we found to be insanely boring. But, we could see straight up his nose which was luckily clean. The chat room in his stream was packed with smart aleck remarks. Leo laporte was far off in the distance doing MacBreak. But we werent really involved and the picture was bad. Then we ended up watching a stream of a bird feeder which was actually very pleasant. It had sound so you could hear them tweeting. Albins comment was. Why dont you open up the window and listen to your birds? He was so right.
I applaud Chris Pirillo for being an early adopter but content is king. Can you think of a good stream for a video podcast? Or just a regular stream show?
One other thing happened today in my world. I joined this Jpg magazine website a while back. CC Chapman turned me on to it. I uploaded some pictures that I took recently. I have been loving photography (well until our Nikon d80 was stolen) and posting to my Flickr page and to jpg magazine.
I read that 2 of the founders were kind of pushed out of the whole jpg magazine company. Where they were probably naive or didn’t take care of covering their business ass properly. I know they got screwed. I have had it happen to me several times in business. But I have always kept my morals and integrity. Shit does happen and the only thing I could do to support Derek Powazek and http://www.hchamp.com/other/archives/001173.html is delete my jpgmagazine account.
In better news I had two inquiries for programs and our Sayulita vacation is sealed for New Years! I also posted some pictures from past Siemens events.
