Blogging, or the lack thereof…

Unfortunately I have fallen well behind in posting to this blog. My day job just keeps interrupting every time I think I have some time to post.  :)

 

 

My company is hosting our annual user conference next week ( www.citrixsynergy.com ), and I have been blogging a great deal about the content (community.citrix.com/blogs/group/events) I have also been putting together a barcamp at the event (see barcamp.org for background on barcamps) and putting together a plan to do live and recorded video interviews at the event.

 

 

I hope the buzz and interest generated by the barcamp and the live video coverage (straight form a Nokia N95 cell phone to www.Qik.com then pumped over to a special channel on Mogulus TV at www.Mogulus.com) justify the time investment required to pull them off . We will also be posting hundreds of recorded interviews via BrightCove TV, and sending Twitter updates on the keynote sessions and announcements. I am going to announce the video coverage on our corporate blog on Sunday night. It will be interesting to see the response. The response of our own marketing department has certainly kept me on my toes.

 

 

I plan to start video blogging here as a result of the experience, however. Qik not only allows me to broadcast directly into Mogulus TV, but will also allow me to automatically send my videos over to YouTube (at least until I find a Wordpreess plugin for Qik that works). I created a separate YouTube account just for this blog, and I will be sending the videos directly to it. I am looking forward to experimenting with video blogging.. At least I will not have to worry about all the typos I typically make….<grin>

    “The response of our own marketing department has certainly kept me on my toes.”

    To be clear, that is a **positive** response from marketing. Overall, great work Barry. You are doing really interesting work and raising the bar on communicating the newest, coolest stuff around the Citrix ecosystem. The video mockups you showed me are great and I look forward to seeing the final product. Keep it up.
