Here's a collection of unedited video that usually just sits on Flickr. Though normally I would just keep them on my Flickr page, there are members of my family who have never heard of Flickr. (Hi Mom!!)
So here are a couple unedited shots from there. I've resized them to be small so they don't take up the whole page. Head over to my flickr page if you want to see them in normal size as well as pictures from my time there as well.
More edited footage will be coming as the week goes on. Hopefully.
The first of what will probably be plenty of videos of my time in Peru. This one is a LipDub that I made after spending 16hrs crossing the Andies, heading into Cusco, Peru. Came upon an epiphany while delirious for lack of sleep and dedicate this to B.

At the moment, I´m in the town of Pisco, where a major earthquake hit and has decimated this area. People are living in tents; bathing in garbage; looting the homes. I´ve come here to work with Burners Without Borders, a relief organization that has grown out of many of us who participate at Burning Man.
I´ve embedded a video above that was shot last week here to promote one of our latest projects. (NOTE: I didn´t make the video and it was made the week prior of me arriving, but my videos are coming!) This project is about the creation of appropriate toilet facilities for families here in Pisco. The one above will be used by approximatly 130 familes. This is serious stuff, my friends. I don´t know about you, but I do most of my best thinking while sitting on the toilet. Think of all the help this will bring to this community!
For the past couple days, I have been making temporary schoolhouses made out of bamboo. Their school is demolished, and these will be used for the next year until the school is rebuilt.
Want to donate or help in some way? Check the Burners Without Borders website or shoot me an email. You can also find the org on such web2.0 sites like The Facebooks. Use your google, you know you can chip in. If this boy from the city can do it, you can too.
I miss my home and my life, but sometimes you have to put those things on hold.
Here is another installment of Schlomo Eats Something, this time its in Tokyo where I got to try out the dangerous pufferfish known as Fugu, co-starring my buddy Tajee.

On March 20th, 2008, 140 people in San Francisco, California were arrested for protesting downtown on the 5th Anniversary of our "War On Terror". This is my video of the demonstration that happened. Created for The Uptake. Special guest apperance by Steve Rhodes, photographer extrodinnare.
Today I am in Washington, DC to moderate a panel for the Politics Online Conference with Jay Dedman. Our panel is called How Web Video Changes The Political Landscape. Joining us are representatives from Why Tuesday and The Uptake. Should be a good time and our panel starts in about an hour.
One thing I found interesting was for a conference that has the word "online" in the title, how difficult it was to actually connect to the Internet. This is a video of that experience.
One of the things I participated in during my visit to Tokyo was Xacti's Tokyo Hunt, which was a day of running around taking video with local videobloggers. You can see Tajee's video of some of our day here.
(My video of eating Fugu The Poison Fish is coming up. May not be that exciting to you, but it sure is for us diehard Simpsons fans:)
Here is one of the videos we made during our Super Tuesday coverage for The Uptake. This one takes place outside City Hall in San Francisco, where we met a man with a very large graph and pie chart, banging his hippie drum. Of course we had to talk to him!
Jackson West and I had a great time on Super Tuesday. We went to both Ron Paul's and Hillary Clinton's parties as well as did some exit polls at City Hall; sometimes we went live with some interviews. A great experience, and it will be interesting to see how these technologies change the way we give and receive information. Could be very powerful, or could just be more noise-- how they are used will decide that.
More of our Super Tuesday coverage (as well as other stories from around the country) can be found at The UpTake.
The video says it all, but what we are doing is running around San Francisco interviewing people at City Hall, at various campaign headquarters, and good citizens just like you. The Uptake will have a live feed on their site that will have reports from all over the country-- pretty damn cool!
