Wine Writers and Social Media: The Panel Video

As some of you know, I spent the week before last at the Symposium for Professional Wine Writers in Napa. I published a recap of some of the highlights last week, but as some attendees pointed out, there was a glaring omission: the panel that I moderated that dealt with wine writing and social media. I left it out with the hopes that I would be able to get the video I made of (most of) the panel up online. It took me a while to get the 5 gigabytes of HD video online for your viewing pleasure, but I finally got it, and offer it here for those of you who are geeky enough to want to sit through the whole thing. I won't blame you if you don't.

Unfortunately my camera ran out of batteries about an hour into the session (it ran about 15 minutes longer) so apologies for the abrupt ending.

TIPS FOR VIEWING:

When you click the frame below you'll be taken to a streaming media site that hosts the video (sorry, no embedding capabilities ).

The site gives you the option to watch in HD or SD (standard definition). If you have a DSL or slower connection, I recommend switching to SD to watch.

Nice work on the video. I've never heard of streamlive.com.

If you use a mac the program Stomp is a good video compressor I use that can help get your video into 720p and down under the 1gm or 500mb limit in of most sites....

Keep up the video!

Hi Alder,

Thanks for posting this. I write a small wine blog and wanted to try and visit this conference/panel, but was unable to due to, well, my job. Just wanted to let you know I appreciate you posting it. Very informative with good insights on how my wine site won't ever make money. :)

Brian
