I pursue a better understanding of archives work, jazz style.

Back from Seattle and in the saddle

You can see the video here; I had to split in in two to put up on youtube, and I warn you: part 2 blanks out from 7:11 to about 7:32, thanks to Windows Movie Maker.  I hope the podcast version of the first part will be available through NMSU’s itunes soon: it’ll have different music (still with Yours Truly on the drums).  As it turned out, Rick Hendricks, the New Mexico State Historian, kindly set up and played the video for me.  If I had known he would be there I could have just asked him to read my paper and saved myself a lot of trouble.  Oh well.

As for the presentation for the Society of Southwest Archivists, you can read that by going to the “Presentations” page on this blog.

I haven’t even mentioned how I’m going to start serving as president of the Conference of Inter-Mountain Archivists (CIMA) in July.  I squeaked out a short little inaugural cry for help at CIMA’s business meeting in Seattle.  Although I’ll be away from my usual office this summer I expect I’ll have plenty to blog about as I serve in that office.  I’ll try to get some stuff up here over the summer, but I also intend to start putting content on CIMA’s website too.

    Howdy. I added your blog a little while ago, so that should tell you that I am enjoying it. I do feel obligated to let you know however that I am one of those hearing impaired individuals, which unfortunately means that I could not hear the audio on your video – so I was unable to enjoy that. Both volumes are up to the max and I have hearing aids as well. Sorry. Figured it might be useful for you to know.

  2. Thanks for the advice. I was never satisfied with the sound level on the video – when I get the podcast version ready for publication I’ll try to make it louder.
