Converge South Video (for real)

Had I known it would be five days before it was actually available, I would not have made my previous post announcing this. Sorry, folks. I thought it would be at most an hour or three when I posted that. I guess I can no longer pretend like I had anything to do with Videoblogging Week if it has been over this long before my piece goes up, so it’s just me doing my thing.

My Converge South Video walks the earth! Oh no, there goes Greensboro, here comes the video!

    Good job. I like what you did with the clips and I totally agree with your sentiment about having something is better than having nothing. Some people say the “medium is the message” but I still think that the message is the message. If you ain’t got no medium then you ain’t got no message!!

    PS just subscribed to you video feed. Looking forward to more whenever you have it.

  2. Nice video-very uplifting. So next time Dave Winer can have your portion of barbecue? Alana Davis has some great pipes. Can we expect “Pimp Juice” to be one of the future sponsors via Backbeat? That’s definitely one spot I want to hear “slusherized.” Thanks for sharing some of your happy memories.

    Excellent video. I thought it was very smoothly put together. I brought my kids up from Charlotte for Saturday, and it was nice to see the parts I couldn’t be there for.

    Hey y’all, glad you like it.

    Nick, thanks a lot. Since that camera is so small, I’m trying to keep in the habit of carrying it around all the time and shooting little snippets of life.

    BB, I actually violated the strict chronology with the “Pimp Juice” clip. I actually saw that about 2 minutes after leaving the Woolworths but it seemed kind of disrepectful to conjoin them and I was worried it would seem like an editorial statement. There was an irony there, but I feared it would be lost, so I moved it to after breakfast. I don’t know what it is, but I think it is Red Bull in a different can with the price jacked up.

    Miss M, glad you enjoyed it. The barbecue in the rain was a lot of fun, as were both evenings out hearing music.

    Enjoyed the video Dave! It was fun to see myself in it as well 🙂 I think I remember you recording that at the table during dinner. I should post more of my footage from that wknd. This video made me look forward to ConvergeSouth 06!

    I’m looking for a date and info on Converge South 2006. Can anyone help? I find the web site, but it has zero info . . . of course there’s the possibility, alas, that I’m an idiot and just can’t find it!

    Tony, there isn’t any info but it has the countdown clock that says 97 days, which by my math puts it at the weekend of October 13th to 15th.
