LIKE TOM MURPHY, I believe everyone needs to learn how to face a camera with confidence. Unlike Tom, I don't believe Facetime will be the compelling application that makes camera-facing an essential skill of an active citizen. I think personalcasting is a story-telling skill and that's why I've integrated cameraphone moments into the creative multimedia curriculum at LIT-Clonmel's School of Media. Short Qik clips from several groups of clever students will start percolating from my Topgold channel, perhaps confusing judges at the Irish Web Awards who might be clicking through my Qik clips to see if they're worth a fluffy link. In a half-hour lecture, Tom Murphy cites several examples of citizen journalism (without calling personalcasting by that name). I think Tom's thoughts are worth reviewing by my students again, especially before the Winter 2010 exams, so I'm linking an audio file to this blog post.
