Much of my work life seems to follow a pattern of punctuated equilibrium
: there are periods of relative calm and stability, but then times of state-changing chaos (although it seems that the periods of relative calm are getting shorter and shorter in time). At this moment, I'm in one such disruptive place, as I'm in the process of pumping out several vcasts and podcasts. I just finished the remote taping of a 45 minute panel for a forthcoming event (then I had to digitize the video and ftp it...do you have any idea how long it takes to ftp a 10 gig file to a slow server?). I also just recorded a teaser for the UK IBM Rational Software Development Conference and before the end of the week I have two more 20 minute videos to record and edit.
I have the production facilities of a small country here :-) and so technology-wise, I'm covered (I primarily used Apple's Final Cut Pro for editing
, BTW), so it's largely a matter of the costs of time. I have no roadies, I have no groupies, I have not even an admin assistant, so I try to clump this studio work such that I'm not constantly bringing up then tearing down cameras and lights and such.
Anyway, I'm not kvetching
; this really is a lot of fun,
Quote of the day:All right, Mr. Demille, I'm ready for my close up.
