Another brilliant Common Craft video. Enough said.


I’m going to mesh

May 7, 2008

I’m excited about attending my first mesh conference.

mesh takes place in Toronto from May 20th-22nd at the MaRS Centre. A special addition to the conference this year is meshU.

Thinking about attending? Check out this video by Mark Mackay.

The folks at CommonCraft have done it again. Here’s a great video explaining podcasts.

I’ve never been good at explaining Twitter to my friends. Thanks to the folks at CommonCraft for explaining microblogging a lot better than I can.

Once you get it, tweet with me.

The folks at CommonCraft have created a short “in plain english” video explaining online photo sharing.

Online photo sharing is not only fun, but it also provides a great way to backup your digital memories. This video reviews the benefits of using the online photo sharing site, Flickr.

This is a great way to get started on Project 365 which I blogged about earlier.

tools of the trade

I’m a big fan of CommonCraft’s Paperworks videos.

The folks at CommonCraft produce amazing videos using “low-tech” tools.

It all started with RSS in Plain English. Anyone who uses RSS knows it is easy to love, but hard to explain. This video does a brilliant job of making RSS really simple.

Curious to see what tools are used in the making of these videos? (Well other than paper.) Take a look.
