Recently on the NPPA list serve, there has been a bevy of discussion about our lack of being Web 2.0 savvy. When I was elected president last June, I put as one of my major goals to change the look and feel of the NPPA web site. I asked Damon Kiesow to lead as chair of the Website Committee and he has come back with some wonderful ideas and suggestions. However, it has been a slower process than I had hoped for.
But we have begun to change, sometimes in spite of ourselves. Thanks to our members, we now have a FacebookÂ group page, a TV Quarterly Contest Facebook group, a NPPA Flickr group, and a NPPA LinkedIn group.Â
Shawn Montano is offering the Edit Foundry. His goal is to help anyone who edits video improve their skills. This week he has a discussion on dissolves. Check it out.Â Region One has a blog under the direction of Sarah Evans. Sarah has been active in keeping up on news in the region. Kudos to her for her dedication.
I have clamored for several years to change the website and we are working on it. My goal is to see more blogs be active on our site.Â Look for more changes coming in the next several weeks.
