SCROLL TO BOTTOM VIDEO TO PAUSE!!!!

Above: A screen shot of live class small group discussion, Full Sail University, 10/21/09.  Attendees video conference while in their respective homes in Florida, New York, Tennessee, Costa Rica, and Colorado.

Thanks for a great class this month Joe Bustillos!  With my blog starting to become a part of my day-to-day life… the networks are still increasing.  My level of participation through uploads and shared links with the web family, continue to open new possibilities.  From one teacher to another, the ripple effect sends waves across oceans even seas you never travel yourself…

My first video and my first video response.  It’s fun taking risks… and now our discussion goes down in the books…Thanks for participating in the discussion.  I love your take on the BLING-BLING CHA -CHING-CHING of copyright law…  funny because it’s true, sad all the same.  Maybe I’m the old man sitting around the camp fire trying to hold on to some ounce of our folklore.  You can call me old fashion if you will.  If users can’t own this material, the government has a responsibility to preserve, protect, and defend it for the general public then.  Common good prevails.  For those who didn’t get a chance to experience Prof’s video response, here you go.

The original discussion comes in the first two shots, then you see my Professor, Joe Bustillo’s response to my comments…

My response …

Finally, Profe Joe’s response …
