We received a lot of requests from viewers unable to attend EVCCON 2011 for videos of the event. I allowed the world to consider me miserly in not providing this so you would be inspired to pay the $595 and come instead.
But that's not quite what happened. More likely, you've got one old guy who can't do two things at the same time and doesn't like to admit it. To VIDEO the event, and then to edit all that down to a presentable and representative video, is a HUGE amount of work. ANd of course putting on such an event is a huge amount of work.
So I had Brian do the huge amount of work to put it on. And I basically drank beer, played with high voltage, and took people on drives - in that order.
We did have an old guy in a straw hat haunting the place. David Kidd is a producer at WSIU PBS television over in Carbondale Illinois. This is a Public Broadcast TV Station affiliated with Southern Illinois University in Carbondale.
This past week he released an INFOCUS spot that they aired four times over the past weekend. And actually, it does a remarkable job of capturing the essence of the event and what we do in a single 30 minute video. He must have shot 10 hours of video to get this 30 minutes so it's all about what you leave in, and of course what you leave out.
They finally put it up on their web site this morning. I thought it was really quite good.
