Vegging in Virginia

December 29, 2008 at 1:56 pm Leave a comment

I’m spending a few days in Virginia with my son, daughter-in-law, and 9-month old grandbaby, Sarah.  Today I’m babysitting her while her parents work, but I’m not just resting.  Rather, I’m getting to know and love my new Flip.  As a lover of all electronic gadgets, I have wanted a Flip since I first heard about them at Internet Librarian Conference.  It is small and easy to use.  The best thing about this compact digital video recorder is the ease of uploading.  I must admit, we own a beautiful full-blown camcorder with many bells and whistles – but once we tape something, I never see it again.  With the Flip, you simply “flip” open the USB connection and upload directly to your computer.  From there it is a short jump to YouTube or Blip.TV.  This device is about the size of my cell phone, so it’s extremely portable.  I look forward not only to taking videos of Sarah and other family members, but also using it at work for videocasts of book talks and programs. 

While I am truly enjoying my time with family here in Fairfax, part of me can’t wait to get home so I can play with my other great Christmas present – a Wii.  I can’t wait to fill you in on my bowling scores!
