Suitcase Fusion 2 trailer – Bravefont

September 30, 2008 2 comments

So, here’s out newest promo for Extensis Suitcase Fusion 2. It was done for us by CMD right in our own fair city of Portland Oregon. It’s a funny little piece that was mostly created for the Press. We dropped a bit of audio at the end about calling our PR person for interviews, and thought that it would be fun for everyone else to see.

I put it up on both YouTube and competing online video provider, Viddler. I definitely prefer Viddler, but will double-post to YouTube just because they were one of the first on the scene and have an audience. Here is the video as it is posted to both sites. You can see just how much better Viddler’s compression is.

The Viddler version:

The YouTube Version

Though, I do have to say that embedding a Viddler video into a WordPress.com blog is a bit of a pain in the patoot. WordPress.com needs better conversion of the embed code into their proprietary embed string. They do it OK with YouTube, but not so much with Viddler.

Twitter can be entertaining

OK, I’m not enough of a narcissist to believe that everyone wants to know what I’m doing at all times. That being said, I find the micro-blogging service Twitter an interesting avenue for entertainment as well as work.

I use Twitter to track what’s going on in our market and with our customers, as well as an another way of publicizing our blog. It’s pretty handy the way that you can search it for specific keywords, and set up custom RSS feeds for those search terms. I’ve added a slew of them to my Netvibes page.

Entertainment wise, there are a ton of “fake” celebrities out there. In the vein of Fake Steve Jobs, there are a couple of fake microbloggers that can be incredibly funny to read. Here are just a few that I’ve found entertaining:

And here’s one that isn’t fake, but entertaining:

IOUSA – YES! let’s talk about this problem

This looks like a good, yet depressing, film. This is one thing that neither of the presidential candidates have talked about much at all. I think that we need to talk more about what things cost when we make decisions in this country.

The old question, “Can we afford our ideology?” is very pertinent these days.
