  2. Hey Chuck, many thanks. It’s a JVC GR-HD1 cam that we got a couple of weeks ago, with a 15-year old Radio Shack 10-foot wired lav mic on the subject (I have an equivalent $35 Audio Technica as back up but the Radio Shack is more directional, good for these noisy environments. Upload to the computer is via Firewire, I’m editing in the freebie software Microsoft Moviemaker (came with svc pack 2 of XP) and sending via public ftp service back to the folks at News@Cisco every day. Video blogging is a pretty new thing for us and this has been a great learning experience. Best practices learned — in my IMO (so not sure if that is a best practice, exactly) always use a tripod (that’s really key to getting good stuff, consistently, though some are geniuses with handheld), allow lots of time on Mini-DV for download and editing, as it’s all real time, and a variation on the old sales adage ABC (always be closing) — ABS – Always Be Shooting.
