I’ve been super busy lately because I have been in the throws of producing  an original web series for a client. I’ve reached a milestone (the series debuted!), so I figured I would weigh in with some thoughts and an update. Have I produced a web series before? No. Since high school, I’ve made small […]

I’m finally getting around to watching NY-Z (heads up by the apropos LateBoots), a documentary short, nee super-commercial, produced by ABSOLUT. It premiered on their Facebook Fan page this week. (Nice lil digital campaign they’ve got going there.) It’s beautiful. Right round the 10:45 minute mark I realized Jigga is entering a party at Rocawear […]

Can I just say Maxwell is one of the coolest cats around? I loved him when he performed an Al Green tribute at the 2008 BET Awards. For those few minutes while he was on stage, I forgave BET for all their transgressions. Seriously. His performance, his suit, his cool shades, the shoes, the haircut. […]

It appears as though yesterday was the day the rest of the human world caught wind of 1938 Media’s TechN*gga video. Verizon signed a video distribution deal with 1938 Media (Loren Feldman) last week.While the insular Web 2.0 geek world obsessed over the TechN*gga controversy last summer, grassroots and civil rights groups spoke up and […]

I’m still busy trying to graduate, and my social media life is deteriorating. I have no idea what’s going on in webgeekland. I have a million feeds to go through. My FriendFeed is barely hanging on. I’ll get over it. While I was able to spend five minutes surfing the Internets, I found the video […]

We are one step closer to Social Media Kind here at my job. Today we officially launched the Tavis Smiley Video Blog! This is a pretty cool project I have had my ear on here at work. As many social media projects go, this is a work in progress, and we have many things lined […]

This weekend, my friend (and fellow MIT Engineer ’89) Bill Cammack twittered about broadcasting live on his website. I moseyed on over, and found myself in a UStream/Skype/iChat audio/video experience with Bill, Tyme, JennTaFur and DarrenKeith. A few other folks came through as well. We initially started chatting with Bill via the Meebo chat widget, […]
