Back in October last year, I wrote about long distance friendships and how video conferencing is bringing people closer together despite huge geographical divides. In response to that post, I got an email from a company called SightSpeed who encouraged me to try their own free, video conferencing software.
What I didn’t realize until now was that you can actually video yourself and embed that video in your blog, without making it as public as it would be if you used YouTube or Google Video. So, here is my first videoblog….
If you think this is something I should do more often, please let me know by leaving a comment. Likewise, if you can’t see or hear the video, I’d like to know about that, too.
Wait! Before you comment on that annoying SightSpeed logo floating under my nose instead of under my finger when I tried to point it out, there is a reason! I edited the code to make the video much bigger than its original size. If I had stuck to the original, small version, the logo would have been sitting nicely in the bottom-right hand corner. I also said in the video that if you click the logo you’ll go to the Sightspeed site. However, all it seems to do is pause the video. Oh well. Anyway, here’s the link to SightSpeed.If you like, you can find me on Twitter at @nick_ramsay. I'd love to hear from you!
