Today I’m experimenting with video blogging. Yesterday a Facebook conversation prompted me to write a blog post about reverse racism, which was one of the more important things I feel like I’ve put up in a while (aside from my two books, of course).
I wonder sometimes if people might prefer to hear what I have to say in a different format: after all, I like reading and it’s the way I prefer to consume information, but people learn and engage with ideas in different ways. Although this is an amateur effort (filmed in low light on my Macbook Pro’s webcam, with the laptop itself propped on a cardboard box, then edited with Screenflow), at least one viewer has already written to me to say they appreciated me putting my thoughts on video.
If you like (or hate this), I’d love to hear about it. And I’d also love your suggestions on how I can use technology and technique to improve things like this that I might do in the future.
