Here are my favorite vlogs of the week.

Presidio: Officers' Row

I Can't Open It, Again

When I go over to my mom's, she always has a list of things for me to do. This time she has three things she needs opened.

Consumer companies need to design better products that are easier to use, for both senior citizens and the general public.

My friend Ravi Jain just started up a new video blog called DriveTime. He explains:

DriveTime is a video blog that he produces during his daily commute to work.

His hope is to pick up some guests along my commute -- folks that have something going on in and around Boston.

Nice wide angle shot.

"Like the space shuttle program in the late 70's..."

Need a ride to Allston or Harvard Square in the morning or to JP in the evening then email Ravi.

Ravi's got a better catchphrase than Martha: "Thanks for sharing... this DriveTime with me".

Kids: Don't try this at home

Technical Notes:
I'm recording the intros directly to my PowerBook 667Mhz via Sorenson. The recording frame rate fluctuates. That's why there's some noise and the video is choppy some times. I've gotten emails from people telling me not to change. They like hte effect. It sure saves a lot of times recording directly to disk.

If you've got a video blog that you think should be featured on Vlog Soup, send me an email. Send it to VlogSoup]at[
