Looking at the Macy’s Chicago 2011 Holiday Windows

Two years ago, I posted this video about the Macy’s Chicago 2009 Holiday Windows. Several people told me they liked it, so I figured I’d do it again.

Here’s a quick video shot on Black Friday featuring this year’s windows. Enjoy:

A quick look at the Macy’s Chicago 2009 holiday windows

Mollie and I have a Black Friday tradition: For last three years, we’ve gone to the Walnut Room for lunch, where we usually sit near the Christmas tree, and then we do a bit of shopping.

This year, I decided to record some quick thoughts on this year’s holiday-themed windows. Enjoy:

Video of the Day: Mary Nisi, Chicago Independent Radio Project

I like to think I’m fairly in the know when it comes to Chicago media, but I was at the DIY Trunk Show on Saturday when I first learned of the Chicago Independent Radio Project. (Those event tables pull me in every time.)

I figured that if I had never heard of it, you may not have either. So here’s an interview with Mary Nisi, a CHIRP board member.

What are your thoughts on the project? Do you think it’s a good idea? Do you think it will work?

Video of the Day: 1986 World Series, Game Six, re-enacted in RBI Baseball

This is for my fellow Mets fans who need a bit of cheering up. Thanks, Eric, for pointing this out to me!

It’s almost as good as last year’s Mr. Met videos, which are here and here.

Video of the Day: Kathy Jacobs, AllVoices.com at BlogWorld Expo 2008

OK, folks, so here’s the first video interview I’ve done for DanielHonigman.com.

Kathy Jacobs is the community guru for AllVoices, an open-source citizen journalism site. AllVoices is cool, but Kathy is a great person who really gets social media, citizen journalism and the whole bit.

I shot the video with a Flip Mino. (I’m definitely getting one of those, by the way.)

Anyway, enjoy!

Video of the Day: An Anthropological Introduction to YouTube

Kansas State University anthropology professor Michael Wesch has an understanding of the Web 2.0 world in a way that few digital types could dream. He understands the nuances of how technology has changed global culture.

He gave this presentation, “An Anthropological Introduction to YouTube,” last month at the Library of Congress. (Thanks, Greg Verdino, for pointing this out to me.)

It’s a bit long, so save it for a lunch break!

I did an interview a couple of months ago with word-of-mouth marketing evangelist Andy Sernovitz about the social media work I’ve been doing over at the Chicago Tribune.
