I got a new camera! I have not had a way to record videos for nearly a year. I used to love creating short videos for YouTube. Now I finally have something that shoots HD and has a great zoom. It’s a Panasonic DMC-ZS3 – I bought it on Amazon.com. Here is a short video I made mainly to test its capabilities and figure out what editing software I was going to use. Looks like Windows Live Movie Maker is going to work the best for me, for now.
The chronicle of a young man with freedom at hand.
I have been to Chicago twice in the last five years and really enjoyed the massive city. But I have always wanted to go back for a weekend just to go to some museums and explore the city. So I booked a flight for me and my good friend Lonzo to go to Chicago on the weekend of May 15th through the 17th, Friday through Sunday. This is not just a vacation, its an adventure! I want to discover new places, meet new people, and see amazing things. I think Twitter can help me do that.
So here is my plan. I am going to Twitter my entire trip, as much as reasonably possible. From the plane and train rides, to the museums, restaurants, and public spaces. I want my followers to feel like they are there with me. But its more than that. I have been building a small network of great Chicago Twitter users that have already helped me plan this trip immensely. Some of them are @explorechicago, @JamesJanega, @thewindypixel, and @VisitChicago. It is my hope that they and others will keep an eye on my Twitter stream in order to give me feedback and suggestions. I would love to tweet that I am hungry with where I am, and get local people to give me suggestions on where to eat.
