The Intersection

I’ve just put up a link on the left to the GoogleVideo version of my UCSD-TV interview with Naomi Oreskes, which I think is one of my best interviews. You can watch it here. This is the beginning of my quest to create some sort of YouTube or other archive of videos of some of my appearances. If anyone has the requisite technical knowledge and would like to help me out with this, please send an email.

    If you haven’t tried YouTube yet, I’d advise you to go ahead and try it on your own because it really is easy and logical. If you sign up for the Directors account (free: http://www.youtube.com/director), then you can upload vids longer than 10 minutes. The best part of youtube is that you don’t have to worry about badwidth and server space on your end. I think you’d end up saving time by using youtube and then posting the videos on your site (again, does not require use of your own bandwidth and space) however you want to.

    I would consider using Google Video instead of YouTube, just because I find the YouTube site kind of garish and unappealing. Google Video has a cleaner, more serious look, which fits your material better.

    I agree with Matthew that it makes sense to use someone else’s bandwidth. I would not post a lot of big files here, without first checking with the Overlords. It’s best not to degrade the performance of ScienceBlogs, if Google is happy to provide the horsepower instead.

    If you are serious about showing high quality video, then you should check out Stage6. Far superior to any of the other flash video site such as youtube or google, Stage6 is geared toward high quality video that is more than just a small window on a computer screen. check it out.
