I'm a technical writer working for the 41st Parameter in San Jose, California. I'm interested in topics related to technical writing, such as visual communication, API documentation, information architecture, web publishing, JavaScript, front-end design, content strategy, Jekyll, and more. Feel free to contact me with any questions.

    Tom, my compliments to your video crew as well as you! They have the rule of thirds down pat. :) Great questions, good audio, and nice framing. Well done, and thanks for all the work that went into these.

      There’s not a lot of wide angle space in the video frame camera. so I’m guessing that following the rule of thirds is somewhat coincidental. But maybe not. Someone recommended I get monopod stick to prop the camera on during the recordings. That might be a good idea, but I also like the convenience of absolute simplicity, because it means I can pretty much find anyone to hold the camera for a few minutes.

        I suppose it also helps that I’m a bit shorter than you. :)

        As an interviewee, I find it easier to talk to a person holding the camera. Just make sure they have steady hands and a good stance with their feet – your camera person knew what they were doing!

    I enjoyed every one of these videos. Great way to capture and share this valuable content. Thanks, Tom and all.

      Thanks for your feedback on the videos, Marcia. If you have more thoughts on how to improve them, let me know.

    Good stuff Tom. I wasn’t able to attend the conference this year, so I enjoyed living vicariously through your videos.
