Future of TV Update

The future of TV was discussed at South by Southwest conference last week, and this has been reviewed by top geeks on the Gillmor Gang show. The emphasis of discussion is how the social networks integrate with television experiences, and iPAD as a TV platform. The geeks predict that at the next SXSW event will be focused on the interplay of television and social networks. It's a feature length video podcast, but worth checking out.

Steve Gillmor has followed Leo Laporte in moving tech podcasts forward to embrace video. If you watch this show, there are quite a few 'over-the-shoulder' shots of the technical setup which is based on the NewTek Tricaster. Very impressive use of low-cost video production technology.

Shake Your Tree

Just read a great list - it's about things to do to start the 2010 New Year off right. I'm not usually a fan of lists, but this one is from photographer Chase Jarvis, and I can relate to it as a videographer myself.

The idea that prompted this post: "Do the thing on your list that you most dread doing. Call that client who hasn't paid. Sign up for Twitter. Develop a marketing plan." Well, I'm already on Twitter - maybe that's why I haven't posted here in months. But I especially like this one: "Remind yourself that the gear you can't afford is not the barrier keeping you from success."
