Good Night San Jose, Hello World

by

I’ve just wrapped up doing tech work for San Jose State’s production of Good Night Desdemona, Good Morning Juliet – phew! Glad that one’s finally over; time to get back to blogging at full speed.

Speaking of new media, here’s some new content that’s really superb (daresay I “leet”?) that deserves some link-luv.

If you’re looking to check out some new vlogs that are really impressive, Inside Africa TV is phenomenal. The current show on Kenya, at 19 minutes, gives a little bit closer look at the peripheral country than the traditional media ever does.


Loosely related: a belated kudos to Alive in Baghdad for busting it out big time at the Vloggies. I’m a huge supporter of what they’re doing.

Check out yesterday’s powerful episode about the mother who’s son was “martyred”, and you’ll instantly appreciate the quality of stories that they’re telling. It’s something you don’t get on Fox or CNN very much.

Lastly, I know Rocketboom does international pieces every once in awhile (which is amazing and inspiring given the size of their budget and crew), but the one today from Kenya was exremely well done and powerful. Check that out here.

Well, like I said, I’m back in full swing. Look for more posts and lots more content coming soon. A little preview: I’ve been doing a lot of work with video, and I’ll probably (finally) have a video podcast up shortly after Thanksgiving. It’ll be something akin to a mashup of what Josh Leo has been doing in Michigan and what Kevin Rose has done in San Francisco, with a little undead flavor… I’ve said too much. Stay tuned.
