I saw so many people who I wanted to say hi to and dance with...and then it seemed like...*boom*, the night was over, and I never got the chance to. The night went by too quickly.
Here's one of the many highlights of the evening. I shot this video from the DJ booth, during the amazing performance by [:angeldustrial:].
In this particular clip, you'll see Sarah shoving the guy who randomly wandered up on stage and rudely attempted to interrupt their show.
(You'll also hear me saying something like, "What the hell - who is that?" and see that I momentarily lost my steady hand, and accidentally panned away from the stage :-( ...and, as a result, I missed the moments when Bobby and Andy swiftly sprung into action and pulled the rude guy down to the floor.)
More videos to come. I'm going through the footage, and I'll be posting more soon....stay tuned.

Last week I wrote a story about a nationally-ranked wheelchair softball team.... and then I interviewed two of the players on TV a few days ago. You can watch the video clip here.
The guys from the team have challenged the Globe newsroom to a wheelchair softball scrimmage. They said they'll lend us wheelchairs to use in the game. I'm recruiting my colleagues to play.....and hopefully we'll hold a little exhibition game in August.

June 9th & 10th
American Film Institute (AFI)
The invitation came out of the blue.
I was contacted by a postdoctoral fellow at the University of Southern California, who said she had stumbled across my videoblog and liked one my clips. She thought it fit with one of the festival's themes: "Making the Familiar Unfamiliar: The Importance of Physical Place in the Vlogosphere.":-)
....I'm so psyched!

It was great seeing so many fellow videobloggers and podcasters in person, and hearing about the projects they're working on. I arrived late, and could only stay for an hour and a half...but after the meeting, I had the opportunity to catch what I'd missed through everyone's blogs. Seriously, the coverage of the meeting was impressive: Bryan Person blogged about the meeting; Beth Kanter made a video; David Tames provided an excellent roundup of what was discussed; Chris Brogan snapped photos; Steve Garfield wrote up notes from the meeting......and I'm sure other attendees have blogged about it, too.

"YouTube turns two this month, which presents a fitting opportunity to decry it. The video-sharing Web site -- whose name has come to stand for every other such site on the Web -- has clearly emerged as the great new media drain catch, an uncurated museum of everything from dumb home movies to slick..."
