I've been taping heaping vlogloads of stuff lately.

LAST WEEK was all about the Franken.

YESTERDAY I interviewed Jon Rawlinson about the Nata Village blog he setup in Botswana. That finished piece is intended for Rocketboom. Last night was of course Geek Prom [pics]. We were late for that due to excessive preening, but I think I have enough good stuff for Minnesota Stories and maybe even a Rocketboom blurb.

THIS MORNING I taped a really stellar interview with the famous science blogger PZ "Pharyngula" Myers deftly conducted by lefty astro-podcaster Michael "Lolife" Koppelman.

THIS AFTERNOON, Lorika and I went to Stillwater to film an interview and book reading by Jamie Lee, who wrote a book called Washaka - The Bear Dreamer [read a chapter]. Her husband Milt Lee is a fellow Rocketboom correspondent in South Dakota. We met them both in Aspen a few months ago and they are very wise, creative and independent people.

WHEW! It's shaping up to be a great week of videos, if I don't keel over from editing.

oh... things got a little complicated there.

initially St. Johns and Franken's people wanted me to take down the MN Stories video, because St. John's apparently was supposed to not allow audio/video of his talk. (i was openly welcomed as a media person.) in the end i convinced them to let me leave it up, and they may even use the video elsewhere. but i said i'd refrain from posting the entire video online.

i think the primary reason is that they don't want Franken's message to get diluted. right now he's out there making appearances and raising money for Democrats, and they're worried about having too much video of him out there. i'm hoping to interest them in the power of videoblogging to generate buzz and reach a wide audience -- online is increasingly where that happens, and Al Franken should be there.
