Dan Pink, author of The Adventures of Johnny Bunko: The Last Career Guide You’ll Ever Need visited Seattle in late July and was kind enough to host a happy hour version of a “Bunko Breakfast” at the Arctic Club Hotel. There were 15-20 people in attendance including 3-4 from the Snohomish County Workforce Development Council, as well as designers, web designers, electrical engineers, school administrators, construction safety managers and a range of other individuals.
Recently, Dan called out that I was posting video, so I figured I better get to it. I pinged Aaron Silvers about how he converted his Spring time “Bunko Breakfast” Chicago session videos. Armed with his tips, I then went off and learned a bit about Vimeo as a nice hosting alternative, with some constraints (500MB/week upload limit).
The full video came off my flip Ultra video camera as a single 1 hour, 1.44GB file. (By the way, the camera is cheap, fast, easy and wonderfully effective for things like this— much better than the $400 Cannon ZR850 video camera I deliberately left at home. One might compare the flip to manga, as the clips will illuminate.)
I’m learning as I go, but it seems that 5 minute chunks might be the best way to post this. Here is the first segment, where Dan provides some of the backstory on the genesis of the book.
Over the next few days, I’ll upload more segments of about 5 minutes. Once I have 2-3 more uploaded, I’ll post again with a link to the Vimeo site where I will have the videos with titles and bullet point highlights for each clip.
UPDATE:I uploaded another video, perhaps with the quality setting too high. Apologies if the high bitrate makes the video hiccup for you. I’ll fall-back to the tighter encoding for future clips.
Both of the current clips and the remaining clips will be posted to the Vimeo Channel “SeattleBunko” found at: http://www.vimeo.com/seattlebunko
