Huffington Post blogger and serial entrepreneur, Patricia Handschiegel, and co-creator/entrepreneur Meghan Cleary has the Flip video camcorder in their very fashionable “toolkit” as well. One of their projects, NPG.com, uses The Flip to share video interviews of tech savvy and successful business women.
“We deliberately shot the series on Flip cameras to first encourage our audience to play with video, and also because we feel there is an increasing place for cameras of this type in business and wanted to show an example of how to use the Flip in this type of format,” Patricia told me in a recent conversation.

Those are a few examples of why The Flip is an empowering device and super handy. You don’t need to have a production company behind you to get your name, face and personality in front of the millions of people on the social web. On the other hand, it can be very helpful as a record keeping and sharing device for notes or a briefing.
