The last several years I have become an internet nerd. Like most people, I spent more and more time online. It all started for me by getting involved with forums like MiForum, Meco list- Meetings Community –(which I was banned from because I was offering folks tours of Second Life.) Then I started podcasting /blogging and enjoyed sending my podcast links over to those communities and my virtual network.
I moved on from there to spend more time in LinkedIn and Jigsaw to try to increase my client base. I graduated to using Twitter for hours and hours a day to Facebook to engage and interact with my network. One big takeaway firm all of this, I still follow a few folks who have held my attention from the first time logging on and discovering them.
Justin Kownacki is one of these people. I have only engaged with him a few times, basically to praise his work. (Here I go again.) But what he has done really caught my interest. I have been part of producing hundreds of corporate production video: conference opening videos, testimonials, instructional, internal and external marketing modules, instructional videos etc… over the years. I am also surrounded on these video projects by guys and gals who wanted to be the next Spielberg. But, they needed to pay the rent, so they do corporate work and then slowly lost their mojo to make their Spielberg dreams come true.
Justin put together an internet sitcom in 2003-2009 called Something to Be Desired (search on iTunes store for free downloads) which I loved. At that time Adam Curry was telling his audience that audio podcasting was going to change the world.
Justin is at it again….. and he needs help. Join me in helping him start a new series by throwing him a few bucks to make it happen. He is using the website Kickstarter.com to raise money. Justin has all sorts of offers for incentives to get you more involved if you contribute to this project. Get a T-Shirt, coffee, even a character named after you!
So join me in helping him get this web show off the ground: Head over to Kickstarter.com and throw this creative dude a bone or two.
