While I’m out in Ontario California for this convention I’ve been bombarded with food for thought. It all started in a morning session where a group of podcasters were telling their story about how they put together a dialogue of 23 characters for a big podcast event. The question was brought up if the Screen Actors Guild (SAG) would care. Out of the audience a man proclaiming to be a member of SAG (and with my years of working in Hollywood for production companies I can tell by his look that he was indeed an actor) stood up. He stated his belief that podcasting was still small fries and nicely berated those that weren’t legitimate actors like himself with disgust using the “A” word. Amateurs.

While at the Podcast and Portable Media Expo this year I’ve got to give a quick shout out to some real class acts. First and foremost I’ve got to give my friend Roxanne Darling a hand for a great seminar today on how she makes video production easy (these pictures are from last year but I’ll take new ones tomorrow).
Then to Leo Leporte and Steve Gibson for “Security Now” getting Podcast of the year (Leo couldn’t come this year).
Also, I’ve got to give a quick applause to a very good video podcast for the children and the curious about animals. A guy named Joel Mark, of the Maryland Zoo, started a video podcast that’s 5 minutes long and about a different animal each time. It’s definitely something to look forward to as the upcoming video about camels is cute for the kids, funny, and educational. Find him at www.marylandzoo.tv. He was worried about his job because he started this without approval. However, I notice now that his link is redirected to the zoo’s site and embedded there. That must mean he’s safe.
