A story on NPR this morning, "Lost King Speech To Be Heard After 50 Years" got me thinking: you may never know just how valuable the presentations you capture will become.
Back in January 1960, Bethel College in Newton, Kansas played host to Martin Luther King Jr. In preparing for the 50th anniversary celebration of that speech, college officials realized they didn't have a copy. No transcript. No audio. Nada.
We were so proud to announce Santa Claus as a key customer acquisition in the fourth quarter of 2006. The CEO of North Pole Industries, industry leader in magical toy production and delivery, chose Mediasite to webcast corporate meetings, seasonal announcements and other marketing communication.

I was reminded recently of a huge challenge continuing to brew in the background as we busy ourselves with the economic crisis - the retiring workforce.
Check out the lead in to this article, The Dark Side of the Retirement Bubble by Stephen Xavier over at Chief Learning Officer. (Unless noted, the other quotes are from the same article.)
At our Mediasite Linkedin group, there's a discussion going on around how to get presenters to relax in front of the camera. It's funny how sometimes the hardest parts of our jobs have nothing to do with the technology, isn't it?
There are a number of good suggestions from that discussion:
Have casual conversation with the presenter while in front of the camera before hand.
Have the presenter think of the camera as "a supportive friend."
