Fresh Lime Soda episode 9: FoWA and Lace

Ah well, see, this is how it goes. You wait months for episode 8 of FLS, we publish it with a broken link to the audio file and correct it weeks later, and then, right behind it (ish), episode 9!

Fresh Lime Soda episode 7: In San Francisco!

Each time Suw and I meet, we try to record a video episode of Fresh Lime Soda, mainly because it’s more fun than doing a podcast. This episode was shot in two sittings, (well, three if you’re going to be picky!) for reasons you will understand as soon as you start watching.

Show notes:

– in San Francisco!
– what do you do? What do you care about? Why neither of us “sell” ourselves
– what we do, what we’d like to do
– Suw cares about blogs and wikis, and digital rights
– about being a consultant and trying to define what we do without using loaded words like, er “consultant”
– work/life balance and the importance of having interests offline
let others tag your photos
– Steph cares about teenagers and languages online (people and the internet)

Thanks, by the way, to all the people who have been giving us feedback on this show. It’s really nice to know how appreciated it is. See you soon!

Fresh Lime Soda episode 6: Are presentation slides evil?

Welcome to another FLS video episode filmed on Suw’s sofa and containing some goofing off. This time, though, we get down to a serious discussion — well, as serious as we ever get — about whether or not it’s better to use slides when giving a presentation. We also give our top five (or in Steph’s case, six) tips for giving talks, and Suw promises to try using slides at her next talk.

Now, we’ve decided to experiment with the new video hosting service, Viddler, because it allows for you to leave comments which are tied to a specific point of time in the video, and allows us to add time-based tags too. It also allows you to link to and embed videos starting from a particular frame, not just from the beginning. Neat!

Unfortunately, though, WordPress in all its wisdom and glory doesn’t allow us to embed the video here for your delectation. Apparently this is a “feature” that prevents malicious code from being embedded in WordPress blogs. Personally, I class anything that gets in my way as bug, and this is getting in my way like an elephant in a lift. Colour me annoyed. Still, all you have to do to enjoy our video is click on any one of the lovely links scattered liberally through this blog post!

UPDATE: Viddler now produces a special code to let you embed videos in WordPress. Fab!

Fresh Lime Soda episode 4: Goofing about on video

Whilst we were both in London – Steph’s staying with Suw at the moment – we decided to have a play with our MacBooks and iMovie and do a little a video entry for your delight and delectation. OK, maybe ‘delectation’ is putting it a bit strongly. Still, we hope you enjoy watching our 20 minutes of (almost content-free) silliness as much as we enjoyed putting it together, although please do forgive us the cheesy ending. (I want it on the record that the ending was all Steph’s idea – Suw.)

Here are the show notes:

Joi wondering if saving the internet is “doing the right thing” for him now
– being self-conscious
The Homeless Guy
– danah boyd’s post on anti-social networks legislation
eggs
– data packages with cellphones, pricing predictability
– going no-car (Steph’s long post around that), Mobility and Zipcar
which side of the road do we drive, and why?
– Walk. On. The. Left.
– not wanting to talk about “brand” and “attacking niches”
