Today and tomorrow there is the Barcamp Leeds here at the Old Broadcasting House. This year I had not prepared any talk, but I just decided to stop by and meet a few people there. Right now, Tom Scott gives a very interesting presentation about creating videos for YouTube or other video sites. He pointed out that this is right now the "big thing" to do, as the technology is here, and video provides a very good way to access audiences and present ideas. He gave a few tips on how to make a good video, using frequent cutaways to keep the video alive and to cover cuts and camera position changes. He also pointed to the parody site he made a few years ago about the UK government emergency web site (brilliant parody!).
