I’d love to have taken the time to have written my thanks to Bill Cammack regarding his job as editor on the recent UNHCR Podcast I have been working on but now I have seen his blogging skills in full swing..
I am glad i stuck with a brief video and didn’t embarrass myself.

When Bill talks about the connections made within social media I think he hits the nail on the head. So much so that you should just click this link and read his post. That way I can get on with my packing and preparations for my flight tomorrow to Austin, Texas and the massive festival that is SXSW.
Let me just say though.. All these places we spend time on allow us to converse with people in some ways on better terms that we could do in the flesh.
A couple of days ago I posted my 3000 video post on Seesmic and soon after was asked.. “Was it worth it?”.
I answered that I would have happily posted 5000 posts in exchange for the chance to have made contact with half of the amazing people I have met through the site. It has taken many of my previous ‘Twitter‘ connections to another dimension, as I choose what conversation I wish to get involved with, with whom and when.
How many conversations do you have in a day where you do not have the chance to choose those parameters?
I have been podcasting for a couple of years now and before that I was a heavy forum poster.. That said, I still feel I am very new to many of the intricacies of social media and with this in mind I am more than a little excited to what the future may hold.
Regarding the UNHCR project.. As I type this there are a few representatives in a small office in Amman, Jordan looking over it now. I hope to hear back soon and have a date where I can put it out there. Then, hopefully it will start a conversation and perhaps direct some help to some people that really need it.
