Firecat First Friday Coworking and Brownbag
It’s time again for the Firecat First Friday Coworking and Brownbag – this month that’s Friday, October 2, 2009. From 9 am to 4 pm Each month, we open Firecat Studio for a day of coworking, conducted open house style. Pack your laptop, drop in for whatever part of the day you can spend hanging out, working and informally networking with other fascinating Central Texans and San Antonians. You don’t have to be a web or social media geek — though you’ll likely meet several of those. We get architects, teachers, accountants, students, nonprofit directors, writers, lawyers, realtors, bankers, motivational speakers, coaches — all kinds of folks.
Brownbag Lunch Topic: The Nuts and Bolts of Web Video
At noon, we fire up the projector and look at the tools and techniques that allow anybody – that’s you – to put video on your website. It’s easier than you might think.
- Shooting and recording best practices.
- YouTube channels and embedding in a blogpost.
- Free and inexpensive hosting and streaming options.
- Screencasting and animated slideshows.
- Vlogging and video podcasts.
If you have experience with web video, know about interesting tools or sites – share them with us. Or if you have specific questions regarding the topic, Let us know through the Firecat Studio contact form.

- How often should I post?
- Can I generate leads without shamelessly “pimping” my own business?
- How can I tell whether anyone’s paying attention?
- Where can I ideas on what to say?
