David Tamés’ Meeting notes.

It was another amazing meeting, and the mix of people who show up every month keep me informed, inspired, and educated on what’s happening in participatory media and the new media edges.

David told us about the Making Media Now: Filmmaking in Transition conference to be held on June 1st, 2007 from 9:30 am to 6:30 pm at the Photonics Center at Boston, University.

  3. Dave LaMorte says:

    What kind of camera did you use for the Ustream video?

  4. I uploaded my first video from Sunday’s meeting
    more coming along the day…

  5. The camera is a Logitech QuickCam® Communicate STX. I had a USB extension cord on it to move the camera around the room.

  6. Dave LaMorte says:

    Wow, I figured it had to be something David Tames must have brought with him. The quality was really good.

  7. JohnC says:

    I guess if I want to be more than just a pretty face, and actually get mentioned in one of these meeting reports, I’m going to have to sit even closer to Steve… or write my own report.

  8. Dave LaMorte says:

    @Steve: Did you broadcast this meeting on a mac or your pc? This is something I’d love to try on my Mac.

  9. Dave,
    I broadcast it with a PC but you can use a Mac too.
