I'm on TV! Well, sort of...
For those of you that are interested, as promised here is the link to the video piece done by the broadcast journalism student last week featuring yours truly:
I have judged this piece on how accurate it is, and how goofy I look in it, and as far as accuracy goes, it is pretty good. In fact, in my initial viewings (I will be looking at it much closer later) I didn't catch any errors at all. That is a relief. Now for the goofiness factor: yep, I think I'm goofy. I need to brighten myself up or something! I talk like I'm at a funeral or my cat has died. Sheesh! Or maybe that is how I talk all the time. How depressing.
I also didn't like how she focused on the privacy or anonymity of the system, but truthfully people will be interested in that. Quite frankly I'm surprised that people would be so concerned with privacy since blogs are very public by nature. In essense, if you don't want people to know your opinion on something, don't blog about it. I think it is a cop out to hide behind an alias just because some people might not like what you have to say. Take a stand! I do it almost everyday writing about stadiums. Debate and difference of opinion makes the world go around.

You are a Super Star!!! I think you should pack your belongings and head to Hollywood! Seriously it was very well done and you didn't look like your cat died at all. If you had been more excited your dufus factor would have sky rocketed. I thought it was perfect. It takes a heck of a long time to down load though.

Thanks Molly. I think you answered my question, I do talk like that all the time. Ahhh! Why didn't somebody tell me? I need to smile more...

Nice piece, although I suppose you could smile a little more. You did, however, look less "figgedity" than the antro professor. What I have always marveled at is how Norwegian you look! It's like you just got off the boat from Bergen and it is still the 19th century!

Hey Shane, I'm glad you liked the story. I thought you did very well. Your answers were great and I got more than just facts, you added personality. Really, your soundbytes were awesome! I had fun writing and editing it, although I should have gotten video of you reading your blog... that would have helped me a bunch.
I wanted to focus on more aspects of it, but in 2 minutes I can't cover everything. I had to pick a focus and that's the way it went. I was more worried that you wouldn't like the ending... That's my favorite part.
My professor and classmates really seemed to like it. I'm hoping for an A.
Great job! Thanks for your help.
And hey, could you spell my first name right?
