I purchased a new video camera which I have been playing around with recently, it shoots in 720p HD so I think I'm going to be using Youtube to actually host all of my videos! For starters I'm going to be recording myself reading my poetry aloud to camera using various techniques.
I now am an internet. I am hopefully going to be creating videos for both One Day On Earth and its Hollywood (RIP-OFF) counterpart Life In A Day. What bugs me is that the YouTube channel for Life In A Day says it was created 18 June 2006, which means that either the account was created for this express purpose and the concept is that old, or the account was bought from someone who created it for another purpose. Bizarre.
I'd take the side of the None Profit Organisation any day!
There's a new service out there for interactivism in Internetland causing a stir on all ends of the political spectrum. Your Freedom is Nick Clegg's new initiative to get the public, the people, the voters, the interasctivists, more involved in the political process.
On the run up to the election I could already tell there was going to be an internet arms race for an advantage in the charm offensive. I think I even coined the hashtag #Twittocracy on @Twitter.
Anyway, I eagerly scoured the new service adding myself to various causes and concerns. It''s simpler to use and more intuitive to a social media user than the old http://petitions.number10.gov.uk/ site although both have their own unique merits.
...more on that story later...
