OK, I’ve been posting everybody else’s YouTube videos, so what about METube? After all, it’s all about me.
Here is my YouTube debut, talking about infrared light as part of a full-length webcast on climate change. This was totally fun, I left Paul D. back at the webcast studio and ran off-stage, across the museum to the infrared heat camera exhibit, where a museum person had kept visitors away from the exhibit for me. I was wearing headphones so I could hear what Paul was saying (and, confusingly, all the webcast film crew as well, off-air). There is, cleverly, a video feed from the heat camera to the webcast studio, so my image in infrared was piped directly to the webcast. But what was oddest, of course, is that I was just sitting at an exhibit in the middle of the museum, talking to nobody (there’s not even a camera in front of me), watching my image in the infrared while I try to explain about infrared (made a key mistake, can you catch it?).
