Well, if you’re reading this at the website, and not in an RSS reader, then you’ve already noticed that izzyvideo.com has a new look. My goal was to feature the most recent video at the top of the site, so newcomers will immediately understand that they can watch videos here. Also, all the archived episodes are now listed in the sidebar for easy access.

Although I received several compliments for the photo used in the previous masthead, it was only decoration and didn’t really communicate anything — especially regarding video. What does a guy sitting on a chessboard have to do with video? Nothing.

Also, this is still a video podcast, and I will continue to release new installments of Izzy Video, but I will also be posting them to Revver, because I actually think the quality, although flash-based, is not bad at all. In my opinion, Quicktime still reigns from a quality standpoint, but Revver does a pretty good job converting to Flash.

Yes, I’m still here, and yes I intend to release more installments of the Izzy Video Podcast. Please be patient, because I’m busier than ever, and I’ve had to increase my hours at work (yes, I have a day job unrelated to video – podcasting and video are hobbies of mine). Something had to give. For the short term, I’m spending less time podcasting.

Finally, I’ll ask that you please stay subscribed to the podcast, and please continue to tell others about the show. If nothing else, there are 52 tutorials freely available, and although new content is slow to release, the old content still has value.

That’s all for now. I hope you’re all doing well. I’ll update again before too long.
