Last month mine was spent attending a High Tech conference in Israel, which also hosted one of Israel’s ex-prime ministers, the president-elect, various cabinet members and ministers of education, science and communications. Some very interesting conversations ensued around evolving technology, but pretty heavy (for my taste) on the government officials. Far more entertaining and illuminating was participating in a Blogference and meeting with some of the leading Video bloggers in the master classes offered… creative and wacky minds: personalities such Kent Nichols and Douglas Sarine aka the Ninja from www.askaninja.com and the bright and approachable Joanne Colan of Rocketboom.com with her executive producer Andrew Baron.
More of that to come when we examine some of the ways to produce video content for consumption here, and check out conference notes, tips, tricks and practical experience, but the real highlight of my visit was the opportunity to interface with the Israeli SAP Community Network team, which includes my teammate Gali Kling-Schneider, content strategist Uri Levy, business developer Shay Barry and 5 new members of team: David (Dedi) Metser, Adi Kleiman , Maya Urman Bahar Yaniv Bar and Joel Alcalay .
Gali and Shay humored my request to get in front of a simple video camera and experiment with a quick videocast…with no cameraman, just the 3 of us monkeying around, explaining how you can meet Craig’s challenge and Be a Media star.
*Newly updated: Since Craig launched SDN and BPX TV you can be autonomous in your video making
Thanks to Shay and Joel for uploading this for us….
