Vlog Europe 9: My Session

OK, I know I said I wasn’t going to do any more Vlog Europe posts, but then something happened that both surprised and delighted me.

I was cleaning out my MP3 player recently in preparation for a long journey. After taking off all the podcasts that I have already listened to, I found that there was a large unidentified MP3 file lurking in the memory of the player. When I listened to it I suddenly remembered that I had switched the little machine to “record” during the Saturday sessions and pretty much forgot about it. I have now spent a few hours trawling through it and trimming off other material, and I’m left with a roughly 45 minute audio recording of my Vlog Europe presentation and the accompanying discussions.

I didn’t do anything fancy to record this. I just laid the player on the table and it recorded using its tiny internal microphone. I’m pleasantly surprised by the quality. A few times the discussion gets a bit mumbly but it always quickly comes back to full and clear audibility again.

If you are at all interested in the topic of long-term videoblogging, and have 45 minutes spare in your listening schedule, please give it a try.

In many ways this is my first (albeit accidental) podcast. Yippee 🙂
