Meeting Report: June 4th
June 6, 2006 6 Comments
Best meeting ever. We had a great crowd of both new and regular meeting attendees. It was a lot of fun.
Adam Weiss from the Boston Behind the Scenes Podcast and the Museum of Science Podcast showed off some really interesting microphones. He was able to keep bringing out new gadgets out of his bag to share with us. Fun stuff.
These are In-Ear Binaural Microphones which allow the listener to get inside your ears. When you listen to a podcast that was recorded with these microphones, you feel like you are inside the head of the person who was wearing the microphones. Funny huh?
Ben Sheldon talked about hte roll out of Digital Bicycle.
David Tames explained the difference between teh Web and the Internet, and the difference between the Sony A1U and the
HCS HC1. The A1U has XLR inputs, and some other stuff none of us would ever use.
He also did a survey to see where we turn first to get technical questions answered, and the overwhelming majority of answers was Google.com
We watched a couple of fun videos. One was of Carl’s photo shoot for the Worcester newspaper which should be published next week. Work it.
The other was Casey’s Galacticast Vloggercon promo.
For those of you heading out to Vloggercon this weekend, see you there, for those of you not making the trip I’ll see you on the streaming webcast and in the chatroom.
Overall I really enjoyed the realxed atmosphere of the meeting and how everyone shared things. It was the perfect mix of the mingling, favored by Ravi, show and tell, and discussions.
Stay tuned for plans for our next event. It probably won’t be July 2nd since it’s a long weekend, but I’ve been wrong before.
