Ideacodes had the pleasure of working with Howard Rheingold on his new video blog, vlog.rheingold.com. In Howard’s words: “It all started when I started thinking about updating A Slice of Life in My Virtual Community, which I wrote twenty years ago. It didn’t take long to realize that a description of how I spend my time online these days would be conveyed more effectively via video/screencast than plain text.” Howard Rheingold is “one of the world’s most foremost authorities on the social implications of technology. He was the first Executive Editor of HotWired, an editor of the Whole Earth Catalog, and one of the founders of Electric Minds. He’s also credited with inventing the term “virtual community” and the author of Smart Mobs, “widely acclaimed as a prescient forecast of the always-on era.” We greatly enjoyed implementing Howard’s unique design into a video blog.
