Intro to Networked Collaboration

So i posted my first video and…well i think the website is a cool idea…but a little weird. I guess I’m just not used to the idea of recording myself and seeing everything. Weird…


I think Seemic is a great tool because I can do videos for my family and friends back at home so everyone knows how I am doing. It’s also its a great way to have my parents stop IMing me on AIM 🙂


So that was my little rant and the end.

  1. I posted my intro too. Maybe its the vain-ness in me but posting videos of yourself can be likened to taking passport pictures. They never seem to flatter you!

    Honestly, I find the whole medium a little too revealing. I’ve been communicating with others and I find myself noticing their environments, the props around them, their attire, their mannerisms….

    Its a little too exposing for me but maybe I will get used to it.

  2. Also wanted to mention, they have Candle Light Seesmic sessions on Sunday night. Scoot (this guy I met on Seesmic) made me aware of it. Its about 7pm California time.

    Might be interesting to log in and scope it out?

  3. I posted my intro last night and had a response 2 minutes later! This morning I got the emails that there are more responses but have not yet been able to watch them. It was very strange getting such immediate response from someone I don’t know.

    The whole process of recording the video was wierd. I had to stop and start over 3 times cause I didn’t know what to say. It’s unnerving to see your self on the screen like that…

    I can think of situations in which this site might be particulary useful but so far I don’t see it as especially relevant or helpful in my everyday life. What about you?

  4. I agree. It seems a little irrelevant. If it had a video conferencing capability where two people could correspond in real time, I would find it quite useful and could understand how it could be used for work and play.

  5. I’m definitely no newbie to social media but it kind of freaked me out a bit when I immediately had four different people reply to my first video post. Then a couple of them launched into their own conversation about Billy Ray Cyrus. It’s kind of cool but I feel like there’s a big difference between the way I put myself out there with Twitter or my blog and the way I put myself out there with video of myself online.

  6. RE: Justin – I don’t really put myself out there on the web, it makes me uncomfortable to have my image/info out there for anyone to see. I don’t blog or even really have much of a presence on the social networking sites. But I have to say I’ve been checking the Seesmic site everyday to see who posted a video. I don’t actually have a webcam… I borrowed a computer to create my post. But I think if I had one I’d have responded to other people already. So I find myself conflicted between not wanting to put too much of myself out there and being really engaged by these videos and wanting to participate.
