I'm almost embarassed to admit it, but I'm getting pretty addicted to using screencasting software
to create videos. Something about directing the audience through the web with the cursor can be a pretty powerful genre of.. of whatever you call these things
. Screencasts are rarely trying to be anything more than just instructional. I think it has its place with the Squares, but its become my favorite tool for recontextualization. A place to redirect the eye to what I see on the web, in this case a trip through Evilvlog
which lands me at a video here
There was a NetSquared meeting at my house the other night. Enric was there and said he only watchs vlogs on his ipod. I can't imagine doing that myself, but its nice to create content that can travel. Kairsten can watch my videos on her phone. Odd and creepy and wonderful at the same time.
