About the talk - Youtubers, Videobloggers, Video podcasters, or anyone who wants to get started with sharing videos online, this is perfect for you! Here are 5 reasons why you have to join in:

  • Make friends and show your clips with fellow video bloggers!
  • Explore the world of free video sharing services -> going beyond Youtube
  • Learn tips to producing great video for web -> high quality, small file size
  • How to protect yourself by staying legal -> copyright, Creative Commons
  • See the future of online videos -> Lifecasting and searching within videos

And maybe also "videocasting without spending a bomb on hosting" (integrating Internet Archive with your blog).

About the speaker - Kevin Lim [of theory.isthereason.com] is currently pursuing his PhD in Communication and is teaching in the Educational Technology Center at the University at Buffalo (SUNY). He studies the wide-ranging cultural affordances of technology, focusing particularly on the pedagogical aspects of social media.

Being passionate about making and sharing videos, Kevin is currently challenging notions of virtuality through his modular "sousveillance" backpack. In an attempt at enhancing the usefulness of video, this unique backpack allows him to experiment with lifecasting, ambient presence, and video as a form of memory prosthetic.
