David Jones, Scott Horton and I worked on the new Washington DC set this morning, installing the teleprompter software with the help of Donna Young’s crew. Sometimes ya just hafta call for some backup to get the job done.
With that accomplished, we finished setting up the compression and resolution settings and knocked out a quick debrief previewing our upcoming DC coverage.
Late Sunday night we recorded a quick video from the Washington DC set. We will meet with Ed Kelley, Mark Greene and Chris Casteel on Monday to go over format, answer questions and finish plugging things together. Maybe hit a Radio Shack.
Ed Kelley, Editor of The Oklahoman, provided some analysis of OKC’s bond vote.
Ed Kelley, Editor of The Oklahoman, dropped by the OPUBCO Studios to preview NewsOK’s Centennial coverage.
I have some questions.
Do you know what the world’s tallest building is? It’s now the Dubai Tower. It’s over 1,822 feet. And climbing. The final height is a closely guarded secret, but completion of the concrete, glass and steel structure is expected by the end of 2008. Did you know there are four criteria for world’s tallest building: the height of the structural top, the highest occupied floor, the top of the roof, and the tip of the spire, pinnacle, antenna, mast or flag pole.
Do you know this girl? I bet you do. USA Today reports TBS is bringing in actress Alyssa Milano to be your online guide during the baseball playoffs. She will have a continual presence on TBS’ Hot Corner on mlb.com. Milano’s first Hot Corner report will appear Monday. She told the USA Today — “I learned how to rub baseballs with the mud.”
Speaking of… video. Do you know how long most people spend watching video online? According to comscore’s recent numbers, U.S. viewers watched an average of 3 hours of video online during July. Google commanded 27 percent of that audience. My friends at TheLostRemote.com note the average length of the videos watched is 2.7 minutes. Thanks Ed.
OK, in order to stretch this video to 2.7 minutes… Do you know the most valuable sports franchise in the world? It’s the Dallas Cowboys according to Forbes magazine. The Cowboys are tops with a value of $1.5 billion, thanks to their new stadium.
So there you go. A wealth of knowledge.
