WordCamp Toronto: Blogging Like a Pro

Thanks to my cousin, Mark Wood, I have a decent video of my speech at WordCamp Toronto yesterday morning for you all to watch.

Let me know what you think of it. And thanks again to all of those that came out to the event, it was a really great time, and I will have a few posts about it over the coming days and weeks.

Gary’s Blog World Expo Keynote in More Formats

For those of you that have been complaining about the huge file, or the bad quality of the Viddler upload in my previous post, a friend of mine, Tom Leroux, has created some more great ways for you guys to have access to Gary’s great keynote speech from Blog World Expo.

A nice compact 230MB Quicktime Movie version.
A MP3 version and a M4A version as the audio is the most important part.

Very cool stuff for those that haven’t checked this out yet.

Blog World Expo Videos

So I took quite a few little videos at Blog World Expo, mostly on the first day, the E&E event which was a special start to the conference and had some great sessions, keynotes, and whatnot.

I am still processing all of the video I have taken, and will upload it all to Vimeo as I have the time.

Here are some videos for those that missed the event.

Blog World Expo E&E Experience

I can’t believe how many amazing people I am meeting at this conference. Attending wasn’t to learn new things and so I won’t yet comment on the presentations, but the people are amazing.

So far I’ve met Lorelle, Vic, Jim Kukral, Deb Ng, and others. I’ve been Twittering like mad on Twitter.

More to come when I pull out my laptop.

Gary Vaynerchuk’s Keynote at Blog World Expo

Gary has given me what will no doubt be my daily inspirational video for doing what I do, and I sat with my Flip Video in hand for half an hour to record it the best that I could. Cramped up before the Q&A, but there is still lots of great content in this video.

I will have an embed, flash version soon, but for now, here is the full quality, unedited AVI for consumption.

I have also added it to Vimeo, and so now have a lower quality Flash version for people to watch. It is about one third of the file size, so it should be easier for those of you that are sick of the nearly 800mb version I uploaded previously.

For more sizes, and downloads of the video, check out Erik Boles blog, where he’s put up a mirror of the large 780mb version, and a Quicktime version that runs in at 207mb and an iPhone version at 22mb.
