video: Tools to Enhance Your Real Estate Video - 04/27/09 10:15 AM has some pretty nifty layouts and tools if you want to enhance your Real Estate or personal videos.  Having used for photo slide shows in the past, I thought I'd check back to what they have added or updated.  Some of their tools for video have been improved and are easily embeded to many of the social networks and Blogs including ActiveRain.  It has been quite a while since I last visited their site.
It's always good to check back with some of those sites you've discovered from the past.  They will either be gone, the same, or better.  … (65 comments)

video: Youtube and Your Real Estate Videos - 04/20/09 01:42 PM
Many of us use Youtube to host a variety of Real Estate and personal videos.  I noticed that when videos are done playing, in most cases, other videos will pop up on the screen that have a similar topic or title.  Does this hurt or help you?  I guess this depends on how you "see" it, no pun intended.  Having a video on your site or post can certainly help to create a more captive audience, but those next videos that pop up may be having a subtle and adverse affect. Yesterday, I was watching a Real Estate Video that was … (151 comments)

video: Video Audio Indexing - Converting Your Voice and Audio To Text - 09/20/08 06:37 AM
For the past few years, we have had the ability to convert "Text To Speech" (TTS) on our computers.  We can even select a male or female voice to read back text in a Word Document or on the computer screen.  My son, a college student, uses the TTS "Speech synthesis" feature to have his computer read back stories and articles for homework assignments while he multi-tasks on other programs and applications.  Well fasten your harnesses...
It was recently announced that Video can now be searched on using audio converted text. WOW! So what does this mean?  What you say … (36 comments)

video: 3 Ways To Reach Your Audience - Blogging Just Isn't Enough - 09/17/08 03:42 PM
In the beginning, well...many years ago, the only way people could communicate and share information with others, was by traveling on horseback or by boat to personally deliver their news.  Then came mail.  In regards to advertising, marketing, and providing news and information, this must have been a nightmare.  Word of mouth was pretty much it!
Once newspapers were created and evolved, they quickly became the "Resource" to get information, and find out what was going on in local areas and around the world.  Then came radio, followed by television.  Now the Globe became smaller, and the World felt more connected.  … (106 comments)

video: A Symphony of Annoying Computer Sounds - 08/07/08 09:19 AM
We've all heard those wonderful/annoying sounds that come from our computers. We have for many years now. You know the ones I'm talking about, and I think just like advertising ads on our screens, we become immune to them both. The clicks, dings, twits, starts, shutdowns, arriving emails, lockups, crashes etc. Are we really listening or seeing for that matter? I see and hear things much differently after watching this. You'll never look at your screen or listen to the sounds from your computer the same way ever again. haha! It's genius. I wasn't surprised when I found out this was … (33 comments)

When I returned home from Inman's Real Estate Connect in San Francisco last week, I searched through my notes, videos, photos and handouts looking for something to post about that might be unique.

I was a bit challenged on what to post and share today.

Looking back, the one thing I came away with more than anything else this year, was the impact of the people and all the friendships I have made. Socializing, Networking and … (124 comments)

video: Mr. Scribble on VIDEO - It's Not For Everyone - 05/29/08 06:25 PM
Something happens to every human being when that red light goes on, and they "KNOW" they are being recorded on video. It's like a trigger goes off inside us, and for some of us, an alien thought process takes over while for others, they become borderline vain. Listen to what Mr. RE Scribble from the ScribblerBlog, and his friends have to say about Video.

What happens to you when that RED light goes on? Do you get the incredible urge to cover that camera with your hand? R.E. Scribbler taught me that no one will ever love you less because … (97 comments)
