Kate decided to draw a picture for LaneVids.com today and it looks AWESOME!
Do you have any fan Art? If so, send it to my e-mail, and I’ll put it on the website!
My wife and I went to see Michael Winslow at the Looney Bin in Tulsa, OK.
I was upset to find out that you couldn’t take any pictures or video in there. I guess if they were more into Social Media, they might see the benefits of video or pics.
Well… Come to find out Michael Winslow is on Twitter. Make sure to follow him. He knows how to do some amazing sound effects with his mouth. If you don’t know who he is, go and watch all the Police Academys and Spaceballs.
My wife (@mrsfofo) and I were able to get our photo taken with him after the show!
Who is ready for PodCampAZ 2009? I am! Whether I am there personally, which I would LOVE to see happen, or whether I have to do it virtually through uStream.tv, like I did last year, I will be there in one form or another!

Are You Ready for PODCAMPAZ 09?
The 140conf was this week. It was a conference based around Twitter and social media. I believe that Social Media is MORE than just Twitter, but it is a HUGE part of it.
They had a lot of great speakers at the conference, and if you were not able to attend the conference and you want the information, they recorded it!
Here is Jack Dorsey (one of the creators of Twitter):

There was a lot of great information flowing out of this conference, and a great panel with a lot of Old Media types and discussing how New Media can work in tandum with Old Media!
Special thanks to Jeff Pulver for putting together the 140conf. He did an amazing job, and I hope to see what is next from him!
Thank you to the okcCoCo for having me talk yesterday. If you missed it, there should be a video floating around soon for the entire 2 hour presentation.
What did I talk about? I broke it down into four categories 1. Video 2. Text 3. Photography 4. Social Media
TubeMogul.com – I LOVE video! It is a great means to communicate virtually that uses more senses that any other medium so far on the net.
I HIGHLY recommend that you use TubeMogul.com to get your videos online. You simply upload one video to them, and they send your video out to multiple video sites (i.e. YouTube, Blip.tv, Viddler, Yahoo Video, Vimeo, and about 15 other sites).
This is a great tool to get the word out about whatever you are doing. Gary Vaynerchuk thinks so also, Watch below!
All you have to do is create a 1 minute or more, preferably no longer than 5 minutes, video about a product that you like. Upload it to them, and if they accept, which they accept almost all of them, you just earned yourself $5.00. You can upload 20 videos a month, and it’s a great way to make a quick $100 per month on a weekend. They pay through PayPal, which you can tie to your bank account or you can get an PayPaldebit card which you can use in stores or online.
On top of that, you also get $.01 for every video of yours that is watched. This may not seem like a lot, but when you have 800+ videos at ExpoTV.com, those pennies start to rack up. As of this writing, I make about $25 per month just in Pay-per-Click revenue. Here is a review of my Flip MinoHD Camcorder:
This website is where you can submit to them any of the described mediums above, and they will pay you a (what they call) Performance Bonus on the content. It is basically a royalty paid to you buy how many clicks are generated through the content. For their article Submission Process, you can receive an upfront payment, usually $5 for a 400+ word article about anything you choose to write about.
Once you have a video, audio, or slideshow published on AssociatedContent.com, then you can link to it in a text article and if a user click on the link in the article, you make money off of that link too!
The Next Blog Post will be on topic #2, Text!
