Video Blog: Reader Questions Answered #1

     August 10, 2010

As you know by now, I regularly record video blogs with Peter from Slashfilm. This past weekend, we found ourselves at the New Orleans airport hours before our flight home, and decided it would be a perfect time to record a video blog.

However, we didn’t have a topic in mind, so we reached out to our twitter followers and asked for some ideas. After just a few submissions, Peter and I realized we would love to talk about a variety of these submitted topics, and changed the idea to a reader q & a. We told everyone that we’d answer every question submitted, however we were only able to cram 25 or 30 questions in before we had to board the plane. We even answered questions about Prop 8 and eating competitions. That’s enough, right?

Sadly, that video blog will never ever be seen by the public as Peter recorded it on his new iPhone 4 and somehow it failed to record the audio. As you might expect, it was very frustrating. But we moved on. So during our layover in Denver we decided to rerecord the Q&A using some of the same questions and we also mixed in a few new ones. Hit the jump to check it out and please leave your questions for potential future video blog Q&A’s in the comment section.
