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.

During our webcast last week, How to Record a High Quality Multimedia Presentation, we covered a number of important concepts necessary to deliver a high quality multimedia experience: clothing, audio, lighting, framing the shot, equipment, etc. Unfortunately, we really didn’t have time to go into all of the Mediasite specifics and how they might impact your webcasts.

Sonic Foundry's own Shane Tracy (Director of Event Services and Training) and John Pollard (Mediasite Product Manager and fellow blogger) will present "Recipe for Success: How to Record a High Quality Multimedia Presentation."
The next installment in our Mediasite Tip series, what's the difference between "Everyone" and "Anonymous" in terms of viewer permissions and security roles? And what are the pros and cons of each for different Mediasite applications?

During our Mediasite User Conference last month (UNLEASH 2009) I happened upon a conversation Dharmesh and John were having about folders and permissions. Dharmesh was at the Mediasite Guru post and one of our customers had been having trouble with the "add like" function and permissions.
I thought the info that Dharmesh went on to share was excellent - something I didn't know - and so the three of us decided to repeat the conversation with me behind the camera, Dharmesh as our special guest and John playing Oprah.
