I'm on the cover of Pulse?!

What a shock to see I'm on the cover of Pulse this week! Max Sparber writes about Filming the Digital Revolution, including local digital filmmakers online:

The bespectacled Chuck Olsen is probably the best-known of Minnesota’s v-loggers, or “video bloggers,” and his Minnesota Stories offers short films about our fair state at the astonishing rate of one per weekday. If there’s an interesting event in the Twin Cities, such as a Rollergirls tournament or the opening of the new Central Library, chances are good that you’ll see Olsen there with his digital camera, and, within a few days, see a deftly edited, dryly humorous short film on the event. Mnstories.com also features short films by other local digital filmmakers, and the web page includes links to a number of local v-logs. Olsen actually has another, more autobiographical collection of short movies on blogumentary.typepad.com, which range from intimate to hilarious to profoundly weird, and are sometimes all three simultaneously.

Thanks for the kind words Max; I look forward to reading this issue.

that photo was taken casually by Max a couple months ago when we toured the library... probably before even he knew he was writing an article.
