VSR::December : Documenting Your Passions
This month we'll be focusing on people who are passionate about yo-yos, crafts, music, food, ecology, sustainability, creativity and the use of a video camera to capture it all in ways that'll make you wonder why you're sitting on your ass doing nothing.
:: Doctor Popular
"I was thinking about talking about PopCast, yo-yo videos, and my craft catavlog. I was going to talk about how I monetize them and maybe go into a bit of history about yo-yo videos online and maybe similarities they may have with vlogs."
:: Oscar Grimm, Tanja Andrews & Barb Finnin of Freshtopia.net
"Freshtopia.net is a fun and engaging place to come for news and information on food, sustainability and the environment. Freshtopia.net is interactive, our viewers play a crucial role in the show by providing us with ideas, commentary, and counterpoints. We regularly follow our viewers suggestions for shows and always seek to give credit where due. We’re enthusiasts of sustainability, healthy living, alternative energy, and treating the world and ourselves right… but we’re not yet experts. Help us grow. Watch, comment, suggest a topic. Try out the ideas you see here and let us know what you think. If you like what you see here, let others know about it, we would love your assistance in building a freshtopia community. Let’s build this big green ship together."
:: Jay Dedman & Ryanne Hodson
"RyanIsHungry was built to feature the stories of individuals, businesses and organizations making a difference in the world through sustainable and green practices and by hacking everyday life. We’re constantly looking for stories that don’t always get covered in the mainstream media worlds of television and newspapers. We think individuals and organizations creating simple, everyday change is as important as the next hot news story. By creating an online archive of these stories, we hope to inspire people throughout the world to think and act more sustainably."

Video Salon Redux is a monthly real world gathering of online media hackers, video artists, filmmakers, serialists, metaverse dwellers, entrepreneurs, advertisers, collaborators, co-conspirators and anyone else interested in the evolving landscape of internet based visual media. VSR is one part curated presentations, one part open show-n-tell and a very healthy dose of networking and cross-pollination (where the real magic happens).
In the coming months, VSR will showcase a range of diverse subjects such as machinima, lifecasting, episodic content, mashups, distributed collaboration, personal storytelling, copyright and licensing as well as reality hacking.
VSR is co-produced by Michael O'Rourke (D7TV.com) and Eddie Codel (eddie.com / geekentertainment.tv) and is kindly hosted at Dimension 7 Studios in downtown San Francisco. If you are interested in presenting at a future VSR, please contact one of us.
