The topics discussed here grow out of the bread-and-butter issues that confront my consulting and software clients on a daily basis. We'll talk about prosaic stuff like Membership Management, Meetings and Events Management and Fundraising, broader ideas like security and software project management, and the social, cultural, and organizational issues that impact IT decision-making.

You Tube embedded player



I'm a little late, I guess, in discovering how cool You Tube is. The ability to place a video directly on your site in a visual player component is fantastic. I've been avoiding getting a video camera because I know how much time I'll waste with it... but I may not be able to resist. Meanwhile, just to show you what this tool looks like, here's a Kentucky version of an oldtime fiddle standard, Katy Hill, played by Michael Garvin.
This resource will make the incorporation of video directly into a non-profit's website a breeze!

hi Michael,

YouTube is only one of many sites that have this capability. I find the quality of YouTube vids to be pretty bad compared to others. Also, you can't view them on an aggregator.

You might want to have a look at http://testinggrounds.loadedpun.com for about 35 sites that host video for free. most of them have an embeddable player.

welcome to the world of online video!

Thanks for the pointer - I hadn't seen Loaded Pun before - quite a few services to take a look at. Looking forward to watching the vlogging on your site when I get a minute.
