Web 2.0 Part III: Blogs, Podcasting and Vlogs

Zen and the Art of Nonprofit Technology

Part III: Blogs, Podcasting and Vlogs September 27, 2006 When I start out these series, I seem to have an idea in hand about how to organize them, which, invariably, gets rearranged in the course of writing. So, here’s the post about Blogs, and their follow ons: podcasting and vlogging. Their natural follow-ons, podcasting and vlogging are not as ubiquitous, or as frequently used in the nonprofit technology space. As for podcasting and vlogging.

Blueberry Documentary Vlog

Beth's Blog: How Nonprofits Can Use Social Media

Moviemaker has the ability for you to change the volume on chunks of the audio over and the audio on the video clips, however you can change volume within the clip. Download blueberry_final.wmv. Production Notes: Harry was fascinated by the microphone and as result was too close to it. So, some of the over is a little distorted.

My First Vlog Post (2nd & 3rd)

Beth's Blog: How Nonprofits Can Use Social Media

(I've been wanting to do audio and video for a long time, but it wasn't until my blogher experience that I actually got moving and picked up the knowledge to try my first one. Lisa Williams showed her vlog from Blogher at the Berkman Thursday night blogging group and during the walk to dinner, I got to ask her how she did it. Anina, who vlogged me at blogher, left a comment and so did Village Girl , a khmer vlogger, who told me on the phone last week that vlogging was easy.

Video As Conversation

We did a few experiments in the Full Circle on Audio as Conversation and some of the tangents included some vlog posts, but here's a new forum set up at vlogdir that can embed video and mp3 in messages

The importance of Sandboxes and Play in online learning spaces!

Beth's Blog: How Nonprofits Can Use Social Media

It allowed us to play and get comfortable with the discussion software, faciliplay exercises, and other areas that participants wanted to explore like the audio as online conversation. One of the areas I wanted to dig deeper into was vlogging and screencasting. In fact, was able to carry on a brief vlog conversation with another participant from Holland! What I like about vlog posts is that it doesn't take very fancy or expensive equipment or software.

Since I dabbled a bit in podcasting before I plunged into vlogging, I got to pick his brains on his techniques, process, and tools. He asked me why I went straight to vlogging and I told him that he was much better talker than I was! One of the things I learned in my experimenting with online audio conversations with others who work in the npo sector is that any way we can make things scannable and quick to listsen to is good. I'm on a little podcasting kick here.

Let The Change Blogging Meme Hit The Road.

Beth's Blog: How Nonprofits Can Use Social Media

I will use a blog rich in video and audio to share my discoveries and analysis. Britt Bravo wrote a post several months back defining the term: people who are using their blog, podcast or vlog to raise awareness, build community, and/or facilitate readers/listeners/viewers' taking action to make the world a better place.

Technorati Tag Bookmarklet: The Screencast

Beth's Blog: How Nonprofits Can Use Social Media

understanding screencasting software and creative process, like vlogging, is a time sink. Unfortunately, the software was a little too much of a pig for my middle-aged computer, so there are some places where the over hiccups (if I'm not saying um) and it goes out of synch with the movie (more an editing problem on my part as you can edit the storyboard with the audio and there places where I deleted the audio and re-recorded it and it didn't synch right.)

Web Video for Social Benefit Sector: Some learnings.

Beth's Blog: How Nonprofits Can Use Social Media

I was up too late editing a screencast to do a content analysis yesterday, instead I found a great thread on Nonprofits and Vlogging over at Social Edge facilitated by Patrick O'Heffernan. For example, perhaps not have the talking head the whole time, but keep the audio and incorporate still photographs and titles to tell the story. Netsquared Net Tuesday also had a session on vlogging and Britt Bravo posted some great notes.

The Art of the Backchannel at Conferences: Tips, Reflections, and Resources

Beth's Blog: How Nonprofits Can Use Social Media

See Dave Winer's comments here, or as someone on the vlog list "Fighting for civilty using rudeness.". To make this model work, there was another IRC backchannel that streamed audio from the conference and someone did the equivalent of live tweeting. Photo by Marcopolos I'm a few weeks away from SXSW where I'll be leading a session called " Nonprofit Social Media ROI Poetry Slam " which will incorporate a lot of audience interaction.

Is it time for a Social Reporter?

Beth's Blog: How Nonprofits Can Use Social Media

That's partly about personality, and partly about offering a choice of audio, video, text and so on. Last week or the weekend before I was at a conference, with wireless and live blogging and vlogging. What does the Internet look like? I've been trying to organize and clean up I don't know how many gigs of information, some dating back to 1992, the year I started working online full-time.

It's all about the learning and insomnia

Keep in mind, these vlog posts were done by veteran vloggers. I'm so glad that Alan Levine did the audio and the ad hoc collaboration from Beverly, Nick Noakes and others to remix Nancy's jpgs and Alan's audio was superb. Last night or rather very early this morning, I could not sleep and started thinking about my to do list and all the new ideas I jotted down in my moleskin while on vacation.
