Blogging 101 for everyone (including architects)

Bob Borson —  March 25, 2011 — 4 Comments

So it is finally here!! The video recording of my now infamous presentation on Social Media for Architects has finally made it onto the internet airwaves. All right, so maybe that is some false enthusiasm from my end but I still get enough requests for this recording that I decided I should try and get it published. To be honest, the only reason it took this long was that I recorded the entire panel presentation which was 75 minutes and the file was over 2gig in size. Since It was the first large video file I had ever made, I didn’t know how to edit it down, change the resolution (people generally regret having seen see me in high definition after the fact *shudder* ) and all that other sort of file reducing size techniques.

Originally recorded on March 01, 2011 as a continuing education seminar, I was part of a panel that included a few other folks that discussed LinkedIn and Twitter and this was a command performance of the same panelists and topic presented at the Texas Society of Architects State Convention last October. The intent was to have three “experts” talk about specific areas within social media and try and explain what they meant, how it worked, and why you should consider participating.

Yes, once again despite knowing this going in, the sound isn’t great because the flip camera was on the other side of the room. With a little effort on your part (by turning up the volume on your speakers) you can understand what is being said.

Also, click here or on the picture below if you would like to have a copy of the PowerPoint presentation so you can follow along at home or the office. The video is just under 30 minutes long but that is a small price to pay for how this presentation will change your life and give you command over gravity itself*

Why would you blog?

    great presentation Bob. I’ve been travel blogging for a year now and after doing a poll on my website, 50% of my readers wanted me to blog about travel and architecture. I’ve learnt so much about blogging through the travel sector and I do hope to be as successful as you are in the future. Keep up the fantastic work!

    Why no close-ups? Did you use a body double or something? How can I lick the screen to ingest your anti-gravity awesomeness if you’re so far away and so darkly lit? Waaaaa
