It has been two years since I started blogging here. You are not my first blog. I got 3 other blogs before you. But none of them managed to survive this long. And none of them become as popular as you.
Happy 2nd Birthday Decayonnet. Wish you have more good years to come. 🙂
The pickup rate for the ping.sg party registration is rather slow. I know, all you pingster are shy right? Still waiting to see who else is going then will register right?
OK, after some discussion with the party planning committee, we decided to do a promo to encourage everyone to register early.
As discussed, Uzyn will do bartop dancing during the ping.sg party if the registration hit 60 by end of this Friday (22 June 2007, 2359). Yes. Uzyn will climb up geek terminal’s blinking LED bartop and do a hot sexy bartop dance for us. BUT ONLY if the number of people who registered for the party hit 60 by end of this Friday.
Sometimes, I feel that I’ve over-multitasked. I’m doing too much things at the same time. Take now for instance, I’m currently
1) Blogging 2) MSN-ing 3) Duplicating CD 4) Shouting in ping.sg shoutbox
And also, my twitter message keeps coming in.
Multitasking seems good. You can do more things at one go. But sometimes, I feel that multitasking is killing me. There is no concentration on a single task. You just try to do everything at one go. In the end, there is no focus at all. You only get abit out of each thing you are doing.
Perhaps I should try to slow things down a little and try doing things one at a time. Concentrate on one item first, finish it then move on to the next.
I attended a talk titled “Youtube and Beyond” yesterday. It was an amazing talk. And best of all, it was conducted by Singapore’s number one camwhore. Hahaha.
I guess I shouldn’t summarise the whole entire 2 hour talk in my blog entry. If you are interested, head on down to his wiki page for more information.
One very interesting topic mentioned in during the talk is regarding the Missing Link in Videoblogs. Perhaps the reason why video blogging hasn’t really taken off is because video is distributed as a whole itself. It does not have links in it. You can’t comment in the video.
So are we really video blogging or just doing video distribution without much interaction?
I think viddler may be the solution to this problem. It allows user to place comment in the videos and link from the middle of the video clip. It’s surprising that not many people heard of this amazing tool.
So what is stopping everyone from video blogging? Lack of equipments? Slow internet connection? Lack of knowledge? Camera Shy?
Well, the solutions are coming already. Video camera getting cheaper. Internet speed getting faster and cheaper. More and more people putting up article teaching others how to video blog. Camera shy? Errr… it will take time for the person to get used to it.
We can’t expect it to change suddenly. Blogging just picked up speed few years ago. I suppose video blogging will take longer time to pick up.
It’s a pity that the talk is only 2 hours long. There are too many issues uncovered. Especially the copyrights and privacy issue. Hope we are able to have another session to cover the topics that we missed out. Does not have to be face to face. Maybe online or something.
So I left the talk wondering…. when will we see something like this in Singapore.
