The etymology of the word expert is strangely prescient when applied to the world of social media. It’s older than the advent of recording, microphones and video cameras. Yet I get the feeling that most of the experts are really more old school than they let on. So old that a rock, a mount and a sermon could be forthcoming.
Attempting to watch presentations live this weekend was the usual frustration of presenter,unmiked,using a fixed microphone on the desk in the room.
The presenter’s moved and talked with people off screen and to the side that we couldn’t hear and after a few minutes in each case couldn’t follow.
If that’s not bad enough the presentations were on how to use technology to advance your cause, business or ego.
There’s a reason radio studios don’t place the mike 5 – 10 feet away from the host and allow them to walk around the studio. There oughta be a law?
And I think I’ll use the kind of technology espoused,least I think it was, to bludgeon my point a bit further.
