During BbWorld ’07 in Boston, a conference attendee from the Netherlands captured this footage of action across the exhibit hall floor — from the "Ask Dr. C" kiosk to partner booths to the opening reception:
The image is blurry. The camera movement is dizzying at times. And the sound nearly inaudible. But I love this footage!
To be able to capture a few minutes of an experience like this, spontaneously on a mobile phone or a tiny camera, is exactly why I love technology. And I was in the exhibit hall when this footage was shot, probably also walking around, but I saw a completely different set of events and conversations. To be able to see this experience so easily from someone else’s perspective? Fascinating.
If you recorded video footage or took photographs during BbWorld Europe ’08 in Manchester, please let me know at BlackboardTV@blackboard.com. I’d like very much to see the spontaneous and serendipitous moments you captured, and share them with the Blackboard community via the BlackboardTV Channel on YouTube, so your peers can view them. And maybe themselves.
Viva the camera phone!
