Tibetan Kids Vlogging!

We've had some flaky internet the last couple days. Moving around from a family's house to a hotel where we have internet thanks to the German hackers who wired up a mesh network over there. Hurray for wifi hackers!!

Check it out though, we've been teaching some Tibetan teenagers how to vlog. It's a difficult task when they have a computer lab full of donated PCs with Windows 98 on them. Thank goodness some folks donated a Mac mini so it'll be possible to edit and upload some imovie fun. Check out what they've done so far at http://tcvvideo.blip.tv.

I'm getting a little homesick and last night Jay had cold chills and couldn't sleep. Getting sick in India sucks and we hope it's not malaria. Please god, not malaria.

Hey you two! Looks like you're doing great work over there, in spite of the technical difficulties. It also looks like it got colder? Maybe Jay just has a cold?

This is so great! I can't wait to go watch what they've put up :)

I love that videoblogging can be so instant. There it is on Blip right after you upload and then it's so cool that I can go and watch it too. Simple.

Ey, I love it.
Is there a way were the videoblogging community can donate maybe old computers and accessories to help these guys?

I have an old G3 and if I could know it was going to get to them for sure, I would donate it.

Maybe we can bug Apple to donate some iMacs... am I dreaming?
