  • Lessons Learned On a Project Gone Wrong made a video blog called “Toxic Garbage Island.” It’s about a Texas-sized island of trash in the North Pacific Ocean, in the “gyre”- a confluence of currents swirling above Hawaii. Super important, tragic issue dealt with by well-intentioned if inept set of video bloggers. Some lessons learned: 1. Presentation is Important They say “fucking,” […]

  • Movies

    I added 3 iMovies to this site- all local color kind of SF, documentary-style things. Check them out. The 1-minute ones are more “moving pictures” as in studies in neat stills, and sounds. The cab ride is a kind of snapshot of going through town, to music. More movies are at video page on this […]

  • Political Youtube Movies

    Strangely enough got these from an email marketing colleague. First, the inspiring but kind of meaningless Black Eyed Peas remix of a Barack Obama speech. Just having John Legend on there makes it worth while. Then, a great re-mix regarding McCain:

  • Small Joys

    I hit three cafes yesterday in the search for wi-fi as I had to get out of the apartment for a few hours. Result? None. It was a combination of poor choices and downtown being a Saharan dessert during a bank holiday. On the 3-hour, 3-mile walk – including shopping errands, of course– I eventually […]

  • Endings & Beginnings

    I’m ending my board-ship of SF WoW. I’ve been there since 98, 10 years! It’s time for new blood, and I want to free up my volunteer time to other organizations, and projects of my own… I sat next to a short film producer/writer/director last night, and we talked for hours it seemed on what […]

  • iMurder Spoofed

    Well, kinda. I got a comment from a reader that there’s a New Jersey movie called iMurder (not to be confused with my fictional murder mystery series, iMurder). I went to the site and saw the trailer. There’s some misleading facts in the intro (making the correlation between population and user profiles on 1:1 basis […]

  • In… Seattle

    I have this song in my head, and I’m not sure where it’s from. It’s a man’s voice, like Glen Campbell, going “… in Seattle,” with a kind of dip a few notes down and up in the word Seattle. Anyways, that songs is going through my mind over and over again. Far better than […]

  • Whale Watching Video

    {vidavee id=”1106″ w=”320″ } I was excited about the whales potentially sailing by, so I ran out to Aquatic Park and took some movies. I thought I saw some whales cresting out near the Coast Guard boat, but the movies don’t do it justice. In fact, I can’t see anything I saw with my naked […]

  • Video: Bay Bridge

    Started using my camera to take video. In this exercise I learned how to do subtitles AND fading. {vidavee id=”611″ w=”320″ autoplay showtitle } tags: BrightEyes, 80W, BayBridge
