A Few Words from Blog World Expo
On Saturday morning, I had the humbling experience of an interview with Kathy Jacobs, Community Guru of All Voice and a Microsoft MVP, known on Twitter as @CallKathy. We took a few minutes to talk about whatever we wanted.
The primary topic was citizen journalism, but she also challenged me to do some on the spot thinking. hmmm. If you’ve not yet discovered allvoices.com, co stop to see what we’re talking about. It’s a chance to raise your voice above the noise.
As social media connects us online in offline situations, video is becoming a way we get to know each other. Often we first say more into the camera than we have said to each other face to face.
Among all of us, online and off, cameras are no longer reserved for special events. They capture our faces in elevators and on security monitors. We change our routes on sidewalks to avoid cameras pointed where we might walk. We’re using them to mark moments and memories that once might have been fleeting or lost in the passing of time.
Cameras are in backdrop and the foreground. They’re changing the way that we record our lives.
How have cameras changing how you’re being seen and heard in the noise?
