I’m a video guy, yes I admit it. And video is finding it’s way to be permanently attached to each and every one of us. SmartAlec Adventures is on its way to being the leading ‘local yocal’ guide in the Black Hills and we love cutting edge ideas that help get the word out. What word exactly? Well, that is the question isn’t it? For all the SmartAlecs out there, we have long list of words that we’ll be sharing over time but sharing just got easier.
This October, Qik lets you use your cell phone to stream LIVE video onto the web. Imagine being at a concert or convention and sending the signal ‘live’ to the entire world. It’s true and it’s at qik.com, a social video website.
I’m excited about this techonology because I would love to show people what it’s like, live, to be hanging on the side of a rock near Sylvan Lake or maybe getting the VIP tour at Bear Country in the winter when they are closed and the resident bald eagles are back for the winter. If my phone has Qik and a built in GPS, I might can even send a video PLUS my exact location from where the video is coming from!
Do a litte googling out there for information on Qik to see if your phone can use the application. I found a interesting blog and found them on Twitter, Facebook and I’m sure there in other places too. Check this out to learn how it works on an iphone.
Technology is awesome, especially to share things!
Have fun out there!
