This is crazy, am like “I can not believe am donw with this project, i was so tensed up thinking that i will be late, or i wouldn’t know something, MY GOD.

SO here i am done with my 2 videos and an mp3 presentation. HOPE YOU UNDERSTAND IT.

After many hours of watching help at freevlog, I think I finally got it. So here’s the url to my blog. I decided to make this sort of a family blog, so it is a video blog of the weddings we’ve had so far in my family. Coincidentally there’s only been 3. My blog is here.

Final Project Wrap-up
We will be discussing the Final Project Assignment. Time lines are critical for successful completion of this project. To go over the process, I will do the whole thing, including posting the feed of the project to iTunes in this final class. Tutorials for most of this process are available at freevlog. All audio and or video formats must be iTunes compatible, as per assignment.

This will be the last chance students will get to work in the lab with my assistance before the final. Wise use of this time is advised.

Due This Day:
There are no deliverables due this day. But at this point you should just be wrapping up this project. To be sure your project is appropriate check the Final Project Assignment. Here is what you should have done at this point:

  • The URL of your Blogger blog should be posted to the class blog. This blog should include in its header a description of what your channel is. All posts must be appropriate for that channel.
  • A 300×300 pixel mug of yourself. This image should be posted to the class ftp server.
  • One screen shot, photos or graphic images representing each of your three episodes should be done. These three (or more) images should be posted to the class ftp server. These images should not exceed 400 pixels wide.
  • You should have all three audio and/or video projects done, with photos/screen shots/graphic images linking to them. These graphics files should be uploaded to the class ftp server and must be on your Blogger blog.
  • An RSS feed should be done (recommended procedure is via FeedBurner) and posted to the class blog.
  • All work on this project should be completed no later than Sunday, May 20.

Materials have been posted to the server

May 9, 2007

I have posted your files to the web server. I am pleased to see so many of you have been able to use the instructions I gave you to post your files yourselves. The path to your file is:

Your last name is your last name with no spaces and all lower case. Your file name is the name you gave your file. Spaces are not allowed! For example a picture of me, with the file name mymug.jpg, has this URL:

So, what is a URL? Here is another definition!

Final project revision

May 7, 2007

I’ll be doing a slight rethinking of the concept for my podcast.  In the interests of gaining better ground from which to tell a story, I’ll be moving away from music (though I still might provide my own background music) and toward a natural extension from the video I did for the midterm project.  It will be more of a narrative on the places I traveled to in China last summer with plenty of still imagery to accompany the voice-overs.  I was motivated to go this way when I realized I had taken about 700 photos there, most them never having seen the light of day.

Impact of the Long Tail

Anderson on the Long Tail

Important terms for this conversation:

  • Disintermediation: “Cutting out the middleman.”
  • The Long Tail: “Products that are in low demand or have low sales volume can collectively make up a market share that rivals or exceeds the relatively few current bestsellers and blockbusters.”

Topics of conversation:

  • Amazon and the death of the corner bookstore
  • iTunes and the death of the music store business
  • Craigs List and the death of classified revenue.
