Life, death, and the blog (spoken word)

I spoke to the Editors' Association of Canada, where I used to be an executive, for more than an hour (24 MB Enhanced AAC audio file) in March 2008. I talked about how I've mixed my online and offline lives since developing colon cancer last year. It's less of a bummer than it sounds, really. The audio file includes accompanying visuals. Licensed for you to share and reuse, as long as you give me credit.

Tsunami video from VFS (video)

Back in late 2004 and early 2005, following the Indian Ocean earthquake and tsunami, I wrote a series of blog posts that turned into an online article about tsunamis. This past few months, three talented students from Vancouver Film School (Jamie Peterson, Erica Edwards, and Shalinder Matharu), in consultation with me, adapted it into a two-minute instructional video graphic (25 MB MPEG video) using Adobe Illustrator, Photoshop, and After Effects (no, those are not real paper cutouts—I asked). Very cool! I've posted the video in iPod-compatible format for iTunes or QuickTime. © 2008 Vancouver Film School.
