Youtubes to be made in 2012

Hell, I enjoy making them, and they get a few views (more if I did the boring grunt work of publicising them…)

So, if you’ve seen any of my videos, please throw comments my way, re: style and subject matter. Thanks in advance…
(Below is my thinking on this)

criteria
short
funny
slick (narration sorted)
straightforward language
regular
with an identifiable start and finish (title and credits!)

hardware
windows live movie maker, I think…
digital voice recorder
video camera

Series
How to – create a newsletter, give a speech, make a youtube, run a participatory meeting, run a workshop, read government documents, submit a foia, “win” with a denialist, write a press release
Manchester Climate Monthly – aims and goals, how you can help, “latest issue says”
Brains!! – the various bits and how it all fits together… (brain stem, pons, medulla, cerebellum, mid-brain, cortex)
Book reviews (ongoing)
Political labels – fascist, communist, reactionary, anarchist, neo-liberal, neo-conservative, social democrats
History – British empire, European Expansion, Space Travel
Seven Deadly Sins
Seven Cardinal Virtues
Cognitive Biases

Co-optation – (make him an offer, venus fly-trap…)
Cliques, Friendship networks and Affinity Groups

What did you THINK was going to happen? (Camus’ Plague, No such thing as a free lunch. Are you fucking INSANE?)
