I went winter camping last week. Some snowshoeing, hiking and a night in the woods. Come along with me!
For some time now I have been working to lay the groundwork for our own networks and community collaboration tools. One piece of that I had planned was our own TV network for broadcasting our content live 24 hours a day, 7 days a week.
Back in May I set up the MKME Live YouTube channel (separate from the MKME Lab and MKME Media channels). This week I finally had enough funds to purchase the PC hardware needed to get the channel up and broadcasting!
The channel is up and right now is broadcasting all the archives from the MKME Lab YouTube channel. Certain days I will devote to certain topics (today is RC Saturday with all aircraft and drones/FPV videos)
As time goes on I will hopefully have content created by others in the MKME Community. The channel will become a tunnel through which we can all reach the world.
I have many more plans under development. Stay tuned!
I thought it time for a quick update and share some things going on with the YouTube channel and MKME Community lately.
The last few months have been extremely busy. A lot has gone on in the “background” and I’m excited to say that the next few months should bring more updates, announcements, new initiates and video development than any time in the history of the MKME community.
Sometime in late Q3/early Q4 2016 you will see this work start to be published. As always, it will involve all community members as often as possible. I truly love where things are headed thanks to all you amazing people out there. Full details will come as I pass through some of the “gates” required to make my plans a reality.
I have also updated the store with new product lines and a new back end interface to Amazon which should make finding project parts and components easier for those interested. Many times people ask for an Amazon parts source as they do not trust eBay- the MKME store fills that gap.
I’m currently travelling on business in Europe and due to some circumstances beyond my control- two weeks of videos cannot be published. Once I return next week the normal schedule will resume.
Huge thanks to my Patreon supporters who make the MKME Lab videos possible. Thanks to your support I have invested in the full Adobe software suite which will enable me to create higher quality content for the channels. The monthly payment for the Adobe Suite would not be possible without the support of people like you.
I’ve been testing out the new Anchor app lately and I have to say I think they might have a winner here. Basically Anchor is an audio sharing app whereby you can have discussions with people, post comments and feedback all via voice/audio.
Here is my initial thoughts on the platform:
A while back I decided to make some Vlog videos for the channel in an attempt to get better at video making and editing. Last weekend I made a trip to the Hackaday Super Conference in San Francisco so I took a pile of video throughout in hopes of making some Vlog coverage.
This is the first Vlog of the weekend on my way to the SuperCon and the party at the Supplyframe office on Friday night.
I hope you enjoy the video. This one was a bit over 1.5 hours of footage cut down to a bit over four minutes 🙂
What a fun trip and can’t wait to finish editing the remaining days of the conference. Let me know what you think in the comments.
