I hope you enjoy this teaser for my presentation next week at the Open Education Conference:

Talkin’ Bout Open from cogdog on Vimeo.

I could not help selecting the D’Arcy Norman Bigger Than Life glare for the freeze frame!

These quotes from colleagues near and far were taken from the 34 longer interviews I collected for Amazing Stories of Openness, and the full stories will be made available after the presentation next Wednesday.

I got the videos in a variety of ways; in person with my Flip Mino (the best quality); Skype video interviews (doh, guess who did not mute his mic and ended up sounding like a wheezing phone pranker), response videos to my YouTube Call for Stories video, ones people just sent me, audio recordings I set to images, even from my little Canon pocket camera at a dark bar in Hawaii with subjects lit by LED flashlight.

I actually did all the edits in a 2 version back copy of iMovie HD (the one before the really bad version)– I have a pretty good technique for lifting out video so I can insert voice overs of screens (and hopefully not too much Kens Burn nausea).

It’s gonna be a fun show! I’ve got a few surprises up my dog collar. I am sure you are not going to miss Open Ed, eh? Go buy a plane ticket and register, willya?

The post "Talkin’ Bout Open" was originally rescued from the bottom of a stangant pond at CogDogBlog (http://cogdogblog.com/2009/08/talkin-bout-open/) on August 3, 2009.
