Excerpt: Over the years, I’ve made a lot of videos of TeachMeets and other educational Tech Events. Unfortunately a lot of the films I uploaded online to my, now defunct, Blip.TV channel, were flushed out of the system when Disney took over that enterprise. Yes, they did send me a few emails to tell me to download content before they closed my account but this was when my father was gravely ill a few years back and I was caring for him full time. So I lost the lot. However I do still have the old miniDV tapes from those video recorders….

Excerpt: I have been looking for the ideal combination of small recorder and lavalier mic for professional broadcast over the web. I think I’ve found it in the Rode Pinmic long mic and the Tascam DR-10C. This combination + the Rode Micon 1 seems to be the ideal I’ve been looking for over the last few months.
