The sematic web (class work video)

So I'm sitting here watching this sematic web video right now trying to keep my eyes open! Don't get me wrong this man is basically my hero... where would we be without the internet today? I'm pretty sure I couldn't even function without it! I got almost a day without checking facebook or my email and I'm in a panic!
But really as much as I love and adore the internet & this man... none of this is interesting like it should be! Especially for someone taking a web tech class! and at least so far everything seems like the first videos we watched in class about the history of the web. But as I'm watching I have a question... what are the sofa's under the big screen for? hah... do they have a point!?
I also feel like ( at least to me)the internet has been around forever, I know it really wasn't, but I feel like this man should be older then he looks! He looks a tad young to have invented such an amazing life changing thing!
In general that is sadly about what I have gotten from this video. : ( It just couldn't keep my attention. : (

class blog.

The video from last class wasn't exactly interesting to me. Sometimes it made me laugh when they would talk about myspace... such an old social media site. But the references were just so funny!
I think we had basically already talked about everything the video talked about. The google stuff... and if we hadn't covered it in class we've been talking about it in my public relations tech class with our CR-Z project. Were learning all kinds of ways to see how many people have been to our! : )
I did agree on the fact that you have to build the website for the user... I feel that sometimes people forget this. like the terrible websites we looked at a couple classes ago. Just because you know how to use it and what every little circle link does doesn't mean your consumer will!
Interactive websites are very interesting and I would like to see more of them... I actually googled them but I didn't find a lot. hah. They are not only fun to plan on and spend time at but they are interesting to look at.
The video was boring for the most part but there were some things that could be interesting. : )

oh video... (class blog)

I can't say that I learned much I didn't know. It was more of a refresher from when I took miserable Video 1.
But I did find out assignment very interesting. Who knew replacing two shots could do so much. Not me that's for sure. It was pretty neat to watch how that worked with everyone's video's.
Also I enjoy doing the video stuff, it was different then the normal computer in front of us.
I think it was good to recall these things like the headroom, tilt, pan, the rules and such. Video could be used in anyone's job down the road and a refresher is always good.
I wish we would of had been able to try to edit a video on our own. As much as it would of taken time and you aren't able to do so in the meeting house I feel like for this being a starter class some students may not know that you have to edit your own videos here at NESCom and I feel like even one class over in NESCom playing around with editing would of been neat : ) at least maybe for future classes : )

I'm not fully postive on these anwsers because of oversleepyness! : ( But I will do my best off the notes you provided and my basic video knowledge. : )

What are the concepts that Frank Welch went over? The concepts in general would be composition, rule of thirds. There are so many differnt compositions like: head room, nose room, tilt, pan, 2/3's rule, action shoots, still shoots, and fram & such. : ) For the rule of thirds is just like when we learned about phototograhy, you don't always want everything dead middle.... the best stuff normaly isn't shoot center!

What is the impact of editing a video? I personaly think that editing video is what makes a video amazing. Just like the CR Zazzy video that was just made for my PR Tech class. The shoot was done very well but also the editing was amazing. The music added in was perfect for the target market along with the color's looking great the cuts being clear and matching up with well placed fades and cuts.

What did you "learn" about video? From reading the notes provided I learned a bit about the X,Y,Z thing. I don't recall ever learning that and I find it very intersting. When I took intro to video i never really thought about my distance from whatever i was shooting really. I just made sure it fit in the screan and looked clear and foused and was white blanced.

What would you like to learn about video? Personally video isn't my favorite thing to learn about... I'll take marketing over it anyday! : ) But I'd love to have a better understanding of how to make a video look good, like how to take a good shot from an angeal that looks great!

Learning Video (class work)

The most intersting part of the video class today was how funny I found the guy to be (I even put that in my notes).

I find the video things pretty boring, one full video class for me was more then enough!
But I did learn a few thinsg today like that bandwidth basically gave us HDTV. Without bandwidth HDTV would be like impossible, and that would be a sad day. : (
Also I learned the difference between a byte, a kilo byte, a mega byte, a giga byte and a tera byte, which I'm pretty sure I was the only person at NESCom not to know what they were... but all that has changed : ) I now understand the NESCom byte lingo.

I also learned alot about compression which honestly got a bit confusing. I think NESCom should have there own dictionary, I sure could of used one with all the terms that come along with compress. Like for temporal compression, Iframes (less compression), pframes (more compression that doesn't have to write so much info) and bframes, where well honestly I got so lost!

Todays topic was actully pretty intersting but also very confusing in a way! Over all I learned something that maybe I'll use someday? : )

Hope your day is going better Mrs. Gurney. : )

Shopping day : )

Today I found some pretty awesome sales... The best had to be at Old Navy, I don't normaly find anything there but I stoped in anyways & found a plad scarf for 3 dollars : ) I love it!
Also I found some winter boots finally...
Normaly they are so ugly or so much money. I have a hard time spending money on boots to wear in the snow!
I got sporto duck boots. I love them! They are so cute : )
