There’s a new crew in town, they know how to throw down ….
I’ve skipped ahead a little bit just to see if I can successfully post YouTube video to my blog and, whaddya know, it’s a snap. Just followed the handy WordPress FAQ.
I actually have an ulterior motive for doing so. I’m going to be doing a conference presentation in October and I would like to feature a number of YouTube clips in the presentation. I want to be able to share my clips with my fellow panelists and I want to be able to present the links in a handout afterwards. So I consulted Guru Bob and we discovered that clickable YouTube URLs could be imported to both MS Word Documents and into PowerPoint presentations. A word about PowerPoint, however: the URLs won’t be clickable until you start the slide show.
I’m still debating on how best to organize my clips to share with my panelists. Possibly de.li.cious is a solution. I will have to check it out when I get there.
In the meantime, amuse yourself with the following music video. It compares the old and new version of “Battlestar Galactica” and comes down solidly in favor of the new one.
True confession time: I am old enough to remember the Lorne Greene version of Galactica and I had a crush on young Richard Hatch who played Apollo. Other girls liked Dirk Benedict who played bad boy Starbuck, but I went for the straight arrow Apollo. *Sigh* Yes, I apparently I was destined to be a librarian …..
Oh, a word of warning. Once you’ve listened to this song, you won’t be able to get the tune out of your head. Trust me, I know …. 🙂
