Videocast: Firefox Heading For A Wall

My Web video debut describes how Firefox's stalled market share and the threat of Microsoft Internet Explorer 7 could mean big trouble soon for the plucky, open-source browser. Download the video here (Windows Media format, 2 min., 7 sec, 7.3 MB), or, if you have your podcasting software pointing at this blog, the video should download automatically.

My Web video debut describes how Firefox's stalled market share and the threat of Microsoft Internet Explorer 7 could mean big trouble soon for the plucky, open-source browser. Download the video here (Windows Media format, 2 min., 7 sec, 7.3 MB), or, if you have your podcasting software pointing at this blog, the video should download automatically.

Like I said, this is my first effort, so it's not exactly an award-winner, production-wise. My goals were modest: to produce an intelligent video, in which you could see me and easily hear what I was saying, and which included a couple of cool graphics. Looking at the final product, I can see a couple of glaring production mistakes.

- The video shows a guy with a prodigiously huge head inexplicably crowded into one corner of the frame. I should have pointed the camera lower down.

- I wore a T-shirt. Hey, I always wear a T-shirt this time of year when working from home. I just wasn't thinking that I was filming myself for a video that was going out over the Internet. Duh.

You have two reasons to watch the video: (1) Well-reasoned discussion about Firefox's upcoming troubles or (2) Laugh at how much of a doofus I look like.
