  • Do X, and the C9 Interviews will be better.

    If every computer on campus were the same, this might be workable. Most computer cards don't have Svideo out. Certainly none of the laptop/Tablet ones do.

    I wish such a magic solution existed, but, alas, none do.

    It's not just my opinion. Believe me we've brainstormed about this.

    The magic of channel 9 is its spontaneity and the low-fear factor that the participants have. If someone started messing with my computer my fear factor would go up by a factor of 10. Especially if I was expected to give you a demo. Would it work after loading some software or doing something else weird to the computer? I wouldn't know until I tried the demo again.

    And, many of the "screen capture" softwares require changing the resolution of the output (ever seen output of a 1900x1200 screen played back at 320x240? I have and you can't read it). So, a panning and zooming camera will do a lot better.

    And, Charles is right. The Sony that he has is WAY better at zooming in on the screen.

    As for my participation. I told you you won't be able to get rid of me. Bwwwaaahhhhaaahhhhaaaaa.

  • Do X, and the C9 Interviews will be better.

    Doing screen captures is just impractical for the Channel 9 team. We get a lot of interviews because we get in, do the interview, and get out.

    Doing screen capture software would make that process MUCH longer and would make editing much harder too.

  • Bill & Linda Gates Foundation, redux

    The thing that communism didn't get is that people work harder when motivated. Communism just wasn't that motivating. I'd rather go to the beach. Capitalism holds a reward out there for working harder. Maybe some get it, maybe some don't, but it's out there so more people work harder under this system.

    If you don't understand how people think and how they'll keep adding value to society over time you'll never grok why capitalism works and continues to do so.

  • Dear Ozzie...

    I sent Ray Ozzie this thread and he and I talked about it. Not sure that's the real Ray Ozzie, though.

  • Sorry.

    I'm not leaving Channel 9, by the way. Hey, now I get to be a legitimate Niner!

    Heheh, yeah, I'm trying to find my Scobleness. This weekend it's pretty hard. I'm watching a lot of TV and hanging out with Chris Pirillo. Lots of geeky fun.

    I told you PodTech made me a killer offer! Smiley

  • Scoble on News night

    I think the changes are positive too. Oh, and the stock price is going up again.

  • Blimey! Scoble's on Newsnight!

    Actually Jeff gave me a promotion a couple of weeks ago to "Strategist, Evangelism Network." He did his best to try to keep me around and I greatly appreciate that.

  • Tim Sneath as Scoble Replacement?

    Tim Sneath is far smarter than I am.

    Saying he would replace me is very unkind toward him. If anything I should be filling his shoes.

  • Channel 9 is NOT dead (from Scoble)

    Actually there are another 40 Scoble videos in the bag. So, there's more of me to come for a while.
