Democracy 2007: U.S.A Independence Day
I'm celebrating July 4, 2007, the U.S. Independence Day holiday, by focusing my blog and my video notes on topics related to the celebration of our democracy: nurturing a civil and just society, preservation of democracy, and maintaining trustworthy civil institutions. I have a great many thoughts on the matter. I will wrestle some of them into blog posts after I clear the decks by completing some promised household chores.

Here's another rendition of the video that might work better depending on your browser and plug-in setup:
Here are some July 4, 2007 topics that I see in my RSS feeds this morning:
My two video posts are from the same original recording. The kyte.tv titles were inserted at kyte.tv after uploading the video. The SoapBox titles were inserted with Windows Movie Maker prior to upload there. The file that was uploaded to SoapBox is here (40.8 MB WMV file). This is one of my experiments to isolate where degradation from the original quality arises and at what part of the capture, edit, upload, retain, and view chain. For the record, the original capture was with a Microsoft LifeCam VX-6000 at its 1.3 megapixel resolution. This netted out to a 720 x 480 frame at 30 frames per second and 2079 kilobits per second streaming rate.
There are many differences between Soapbox and kyte.tv, including quite different approaches to what is provided for embedding in web pages.
