"lost in a moment" Video

While cleaning up some bookmarks I re-discovered this video. I can't recall when I first came across it, or who to give the hat tip too, but I bookmarked it because I wanted to post it here. Somewhat delayed, but no less enjoyable: lost in a moment.

I'm not entirely fond of the music, though I don't hate it. What I really like about the piece is, as the videographer puts it, the space that the camera was able to enter.. extremely personal and scrutinising but not too lingering. Follow the link to the original for the thevideographer 's comments on the piece. They're quite interesting.

Rebecca Bollwitt on Building Your Personal Brand

Those of you reading this blog who are also bloggers might be interested in a post I just made at Group 42:

Building Your Personal Brand - Rebecca Bollwitt

Rebecca Bollwitt, Vancouver's Miss 604 and star blogger spoke on personal branding at a recent meeting of Third Tuesday Vancouver and I caught it on video. Some great information on blogging in general and building a readership through branding. There's also links to notes if you want skim the information without taking in the video.

Summoner Geeks

This video has been around for a long time, now, and it still comes up in conversation at least once a year! Just the other day someday dropped a quote ("I cast a spell") in IM, prompting a barrage of other quotes involving Mountain Dew, Cheetos and attacking the darkness. I had to re-watch the video for old times sake. Rather than locate it on my hard drive I checked to see if it had been loaded to YouTube (What does that say?). To my delight, it had.

For anyone that's played D&D, this usually brings back some great memories. If you're interested in its history, check out this Wikipedia entry: Dead Alewives - Dungeons and Dragons Sketch. Behold the greatness of the Summoner Geek video.

TED Talks - Recommended

Feeling a little bored and looking for something a bit more enlightened than your standard YouTube video? Head over to the TED website: www.ted.com.

TED is self described as:

TED LogoTED stands for Technology, Entertainment, Design. It started out (in 1984) as a conference bringing together people from those three worlds. Since then its scope has become ever broader. The annual conference now brings together the world's most fascinating thinkers and doers, who are challenged to give the talk of their lives (in 18 minutes). This site makes the best talks and performances from TED available to the public, for free.

There are some phenomenal talks contained in the archives. Some are highly thought provoking, some are funny, some are fascinating, some are all of the above. Here's a few I've enjoyed so far:

RSS in Plain English

First seen on Brian's blog, and then elsewhere, I've been meaning to blog this video on RSS for a while.

This is one of the best descriptions of RSS I've seen, and the presentation style is fun. Thanks for the video, Lee!

Gates vs Jobs

I'm having a blast randomly hitting Planet Northern Voice for a kind of blog potpourri. Spotted this YouTube video on Random Dude's blog. It made me laugh, so I'm sharing.

Web 2.0 ... The Machine is Us/ing Us

I've seen this video on some educator blogs I follow (Abject Learning, D'Arcy Norman dot net). I find it completely fascinating, maybe it's the music. Regardless, the message is totally bang on.
