A little Good Friday Resurrection

Apr 07, 2009 in Creativity

Hello! YouTube is an amazing place. Funny how, while searching for something else, something always finds a way to jump out and catch your attention.

Take this Umbrella acoustic performance video by an inspirational, talented, worship leader/performer named Cofféy Anderson. Just in time for Good Friday and Easter, or as we pentecostals like to say, Resurrection Sunday, yo.

Visit Cofféy Anderson’s official home page to find other ways to connect with him. I was going to list all his sites here, but he already does that, with more pizazz!

“Holler at yer boy!”

On Web Programming, SEO Consulting, and WHY

Dec 09, 2008 in Personality, Strategy, Technology

Last week I mentioned my foray into the world of creative communications consulting. Here’s a sampling of the kind of sideline projects I’ve been working on lately. Many of these are classified: top secret, for-your-eyes-only kind of stuff. By reading this post you agree to be bound by the terms of this agreement: Don’t tell a soul.

[Edit: Okay, the secret is out: the main intent of this post is to provide search engine links to my colleagues’ sites in order to improve their SEO traffic… ooh how I hate spilling the beans!]

Virtual meetings can make a real-world difference

Sep 17, 2008 in Creativity, Productivity, Technology

On September 16, RJ Jácquez, Senior Product Evangelist for the Adobe Technical Communication Suite, presented a remote meeting for the Society for Technical Communication Canada West Coast chapter. His involvement actually went above and beyond a mere sales pitch. RJ hosted the entire meeting through Acrobat Connect Pro, which combined a live video feed from our meeting location, prerecorded audio and video files stored on the Connect server, and his own presentation about the enhancements to the Adobe Technical Communication Suite for version 1.3. As part of the A/V team I was stoked to try out this technology. I wrote an article about our rehearsal for Coast Lines, the newsletter of the STC Canada West Coast chapter.

We all stream for ustream.tv

Aug 22, 2008 in Creativity, Personality, Technology

As part of my volunteer activity for the Society for Technical Communication – Canada West Coast chapter, I offered to evaluate some streaming video technology we may use to kick off our program meeting in September. Since the spring of 2008, we branded ourselves as a virtual chapter, and shifted our focus from face-to-face meetings to online communities like a forum and wiki attached to our web site. One area we had yet to try was the notion of live video streaming. You can’t get more virtual than live video. On a recommendation from Bruce Sharpe, I explored ustream.tv tonight, and I got hooked. In 20 minutes I joined ustream.tv, set up a channel, and broadcast my first video from a webcam connected to my laptop. I even recorded a clip, if you’d care to look….

In adequacy

Jun 06, 2008 in Philosophy, Strategy

There are times when I feel inadequate, that I don’t measure up, pass muster, prove myself, or generally feel worthy. When I feel inadequate, I am really telling God that I don’t trust that He knows what He’s doing, and that He’s placed me in the wrong place. I forget that I am where I am for a reason, will be here for a season, and should He desire, at the right time He will move me somewhere else. His grace truly is sufficient for me. If it’s not, then I haven’t really grasped the concept of how much His grace really means to me.
