Collector's Items! - The Entire Tip Clip Series

Did you miss any of the 8 videos in the Tip Clip series?

On a visit to my company main office in Newport News in November, 2010, Meredith Bell encouraged me to try recording some brief blog-like HD videos on topics that interest me. She's a natural in front of the camera, but I couldn't imagine myself doing it.

But I gave it a try. I have to admit, it was a stretch. It takes a special kind of charisma to come across effectively in front of a camera. I decided that I would just be myself. I wouldn't knock myself out trying to be an actor or a polished presenter - just a regular straight-talking guy who cares about what he's saying.

And it worked! The result seemed to be worth the effort. So I decided to do more of them. I love learning experiences, and this was certainly that! I got better at it as I went along. They weren't difficult to set up and produce, so I continued doing them, and learning.

But after the 8th video, I realized that I needed to spend more of my precious daytime hours writing, not making videos. Writing is what I'm passionate about, what I do best. So I'm not sure I'll ever produce any more of them. As Yogi Berra says, "It's tough to make predictions, especially about the future."

You know what THAT means. Yeah, baby, these videos are rare artifacts! COLLECTOR'S ITEMS. So if you missed any of these little treasures, take your pick and check them out...
