I used to work in video production years ago. It is amazing what it took then vs now to capture our lives in stunning resolution. Hell…back then there wasn’t even HD and it took a massive amount of equipment and it was all expensive and HUGE to pull something like this off. Now days, all you need is a GoPro, a regular computer and a little creativity to really pull off something special. If there is one section of the web and media that has changed the most in such a short period of time…it has to be video.
This sequence is amazing. Check it out.
This is crazy. I have always wondered what an avalanche actually has the capability of doing. This video from Alaska is the best, real life example of what snow can really do. Need a new lake?
In Atlanta this week we had some serious problems related to weather that resulted in a multitude of issues including some deaths. Luckily…from what it sounds like in this video…there wasn’t anyone in the new lake formed in Alaska.
Do you remember using the Internet on Windows 95 with a Netscape 2.0 browser? I do and it is amazing to think that was only 17 years ago. When you look at this video and what it took to get connected, it brings back old memories of taking 10 minutes to actually get online. Then all you got was html white pages with blue links and maybe a picture or two. Watch out though…that one picture that is low res and small is going to take forever to load!
This instructional video is really hilarious by today’s standards. It was even shot on VHS which I will have to show and explain to my kid one day like my parents did with 8mm.
It doesn’t kind of make me think…where are we going to be in another 17 years? Technology is racing forward at a pace much faster than in that time period. We are not nearly going to be as impressed with something like “you got mail”.
