Read for the Record: Devour “The Very Hungry Caterpillar” with Matt Lauer, Arizona Governor Brewer and Mediasite
It's quite possible that today, October 8th, 2009, more people will read "The Very Hungry Caterpillar" by Eric Carle at the same time than ever before (the caterpillar's celebrating its 40th anniversary this year too).
When you're a hammer, every problem is a nail. And now that I live-eat-n-breathe Mediasite 24/7, it's hard not to see applications for webcasting at every turn.
And here's the second webinar for September with yours truly at the mic presenting "Blended Events 101: A Primer for Webcasting Your Physical Conference to an Online Audience" on Tuesday, September 22 at 1:00 pm CT. I hope you'll tune in (it's free, as ever) - you can register here.
And if you don’t, the person you work for does.
Let me explain.
Sonic Foundry is filled with creative people (as is any good technology company) – musicians, artists, writers, DJs and lots of drummers (at one point I began to wonder if you had to be a a drummer to work here!).
When a creative person sends out their work – for example, let’s say I send a song to my friends and family – the first thing I want to know is, “did they listen to it?” and closely followed by “did they like it?”
It’s human nature.
There's a quote out there from St. Francis of Assisi where I'm told he said, Preach the Gospel at all times and, when necessary, use words.
I think we presenters could learn something here.
Isn't it funny that we often feel like the more words we can pack on a slide, the more intelligent we'll come off?
I just got off a web conference by an industry analyst (I won't say which industry or which analyst). Most every slide was packed (and I mean top to bottom) with words.

I first read the Beloit College Mindset List back in 2003 when I was working on an ad campaign targeted to college students. Every year since, it's become my annual age reality check. [The one that really got me? A classic from the very first Mindset List for the Class of 2002. Number 7. "They have never feared a nuclear war. 'The Day After' is a pill to them—not a movie." Sheesh.]
