6:45 PM: VIDEOBLOGGING: IT'S A CONTINUUM
Videoblogger Steve Garfield
will briefly talk about the
advantages of putting your video up on the web in a videoblog. When you
put your video in a blog, a whole new audience will be able to see your
work. Much like the explosion of audio with podcasting, video on
the web is about to explode as more and more people progress through
the continuum: Watch, learn, create, teach.
Steve will also mention participating in the joint Tech Superpowers, Inc. and BOSFCPUG "Going Mobile
booth at Macworld Conference and Expo Boston July 11-14th, in which the
BOSFCPUG will launch a QuickTime Streaming Server in which members of
the Boston digital filmmaking community can upload content to view on
their respective websites and on the BOSFCPUG website.
Garfield is the Boston Correspondent with Rocketboom
