10NTC: Don't Be Afraid of Low-Tech Communication

Tech Soup Blog

A colleague of mine was a programmer on Apple's original QuickTime team in the 1990s. He told me that one of the QuickTime programmers didn't use email or even voicemail — just an old-fashioned answering service. One of the sessions at NTC I enjoyed a lot was Are You For Real?! Working With a Virtual Team. Host Ian Rhett of Civic Actions was joined by his coworker Jenn Sramek and Tom Heck of the International Association of Teamwork Facilitators.

Excellent Use of Video in A Personal Fundraising Campaign

He documented it on film several versions are available, including a higher quality quicktime - The Water Buffalo Movie. Robert Thompson, an American musician who lives in China, went out and bought a water buffalo and presented it to a poor family in China. It is a terrific example of story telling and use of video as tool to support a personal fundraising campaign.

Beth's Blog: How Nonprofits Can Use Social Media

Well, off to double check my compression settings for QuickTime I left Australia on Sunday afternoon and arrived in the Bay Area on Sunday morning. I'm here in Silicon Valley for Netsquared Conference and last night the conference got underway. I had an opportunity to eat dinner with the Nonprofit Commons group that will be doing a session. Rik Riel has a write up here. This morning Vince Stehl gave the morning welcomed.

Compression Confessions

Steve Garfield's Learn Video About VideoBlogging Secrets of Videoblogging Book by Ryanne Hodson and Michael Verdi FreeVlog Videoblogging by Jay Dedman and Joshua Paul I am working on a Windows XP platform - so I decided to use QuickTime pro to compress the AVI file. I found a few recipes for compression, although not a windows/quicktime pro one. I would like to edit in QuickTime in a Windows environment with a cheap/free easy to use editing program.

March of the Penguins!

Click To Play Flash Version Click To Play Quicktime Version Music: Voyage Black. I made that yesterday after I scored two blow-up Penguins for Harry and Sara. The Penguins made their appearance outside my hotel room and I was instructed to bring them to the morning breakfast at the NTC. It was a creative promotion of Penguin Day at the NTC! I'm sitting here in the circle, drinking great coffee and have good wifi! I hope to live blog some of this.

Open Source vs. Proprietary: Graphics and Video

Zen and the Art of Nonprofit Technology

Itunes/Quicktime comes native with MacOS, and Windows Media Player for Windows. There are some very interesting comparisons to make in this realm, and, I’d say first off, that the proprietary tools are in the lead, for sure. I’ll start with basic graphics – graphic manipulation tools. Of course, on the proprietary side is the ever present and predominant Adobe Photoshop and Illustrator. And, honestly, they are very good tools, and considered industry standards.

Live Blogging Podcamp: Steve Garfield's Thunderstorm of Podcasting

Beth's Blog: How Nonprofits Can Use Social Media

He said the free and cheap programs for video making are imovie (mac) or moviemaker (pc) or quicktime pro. I saw how to do podcasts with a cell phone at NCDD, but I didn't know that Hipcast will translate your avi or other video format into a more friendly format and post on your blog as a flash video with a link to the Quicktime format. He uses quicktime pro to export it. Steve Garfield's session was awesome!

You can watch it with Quicktime or Windows Media here , or watch it on YouTube. It is a dreary grey Monday morning here in the Bay Area. If you need a laugh over your coffee or lunch break today, here are links to two Internet movies that are good for a chuckle.

Learning Journal: Experimenting With Adding Music to Web Videos

Beth's Blog: How Nonprofits Can Use Social Media

Tools: -Windows Movie Maker -QuickTime Pro. Reflection: This time I experimented with using QuickTime Pro as the audio editor and video editor. The next technique that I am exploring in my screencasting/videocasting skill set is the addition of music. I've resisted adding music for three stupid reasons: 1. My (incorrect) perception that non-copyrighted music is crap. Why add KB or MB to the file size when my content instructional.

Nonprofits and Videoblogging: Janitors Own Words: Video from SEIU

Beth's Blog: How Nonprofits Can Use Social Media

One thing we learned is You Tube is an easy way to get video out to people without also having to give them a crash course in what software to download to watch this QuickTime, or that Windows Media. In a few weeks, there will be a video blogging geekout session at NTC. I'm the session designer and I got a couple of rock stars from the video blogging community with us - Jay Dedman , Ryan Hodson , Jonny Goldstein , Andy Carvin , and Robyn Tippins to lead the session.
