Campus map to find the Campus Center:
(The Campus Center is #6, behind Alumni Gym (#3) and next to Olin Hall (#23). The star is where they are building a new Admissions building and the circle in the center of campus is a fountain. These are just mentioned as landmarks.)
Jan McLaughlin, a videoblogger (vlogger) from New York, will be visiting and we will be presenting about videoblogging. This will include everything from what equipment to use to how to drive traffic to your site, how to build community through videoblogging and how to subscribe to news feeds using RSS so you can watch other peoples' videos. This will be a fun, interactive
presentation. I hope you can make it.
If you cannot make this time but are interested, please let me know and I will keep you on the list for future events.
A bit about videoblogging for those of you who are not familiar with it:
Videoblogging, also known as vlogging, is a computer-based form of communication using blogs to show videos you make. These can be for personal, journalistic, artistic or other purposes. Maybe you want to tell the story of what is happening at city hall or maybe you want to show snippets from your child's birthday party. If you can videotape it, you can vlog it. Think of this as being similar to podcasting, but with video. It's really quite simple to do and cheap as well. Some examples of vlogs:

Thanks, and I hope you can make it.
