This week I chose to explore Vimeo and Flickr. The Lynda videos were helpful and easy to pick and choose which items were important to watch, But like all of the other sites I learned the most with the process of “Hmmm… I wonder what this button does?”
3 things I like most about Vimeo:
2. Definition. Much better than YouTube when shot with a good quality camera. I think I’ll take my GoPro along the next time I go flying and start uploading some aviation footage. Hopefully, it won’t be useful to the NTSB someday.
3. Search function. This is a love-hate choice. I love that I can search a topic with broad or narrow terms and come up with dozens of good videos (they have lots about the Edible Schoolyard). But I hate that I spent watching them for four hours last night.
3 things I like most about Flickr:
2. Definition. Same as above.
3. Organization. The album format is easy to understand and use and limits a lot of unnecessary searching.
P.S.: Facebook update:
I learned that I can unfollow (less traffic) rather than unfriend (hurt feelings). I already knew I live on the buckle in the Bible belt but was not aware that most of my local “friends” were in the “Glory Hallelujah” club. I can respect a person’s religious freedom but don’t necessarily want to be exposed to it every day.
