More BFP TV!

Posted By on Mon, Feb 27, 2006 at 12:17 PM

I'm finally back from maternity leave. Still sleep deprived and distracted, though, so please have patience with me.

A bunch of interesting stuff happened while I was away, and I hope to get to it all this week, but first allow me to draw your attention to the latest web video offering from the Burlington Free Press. The BFP has been experimenting with video lately. The segments are narrated by their online editor, Allison Lazarz. This one features farmer Art Meade, the subject of today's BFP cover story about niche farming.

I really admire the outside-the-box spirit of incorporating video on a newspaper website (though the video itself is more conventional than I'd like). I'm glad the BFP is making this leap. They're obviously investing some resources in this project, because the production quality is pretty good -- though frankly the stream I'm getting is a little garbled by feedback. When Meade's talking, the goat bleating in the background overwhelms him, as does some electronic beeping. Sounds unfortunately trippy. Anybody else have this feeback issue?

Has anybody else watched this video? What do you think of the BFP branching out this way?

Got something to say? Send a letter to the editor and we'll publish your feedback in print!

    Social Sentinel, a Burlington-based company that identifies threatening content on social media, was among the winners of the 2018 Tech Jam awards, presented last Friday at the 12th Vermont Tech Jam. The prizes, given annually by the Vermont Technology Alliance, BTV Ignite and Seven Days, recognize leaders in the state's tech ecosystem. The awards ceremony was the culmination of a busy day at the free career and tech expo organized by Seven Days and presented by Vermont Works. Representatives from more than 50 companies and colleges talked with hundreds of attendees who walked the expo floor. Jeff Couture, executive director of the Vermont Technology Alliance, said he talked with job seekers from across Vermont and outside the state at the event, "including someone, suitcase in hand, who visited from North Carolina."
