I’m a Hokie

Breaking news:  Businesses, organizations, and institutions are using social media venues – like YouTube videos, and blogs, like Handshake 2.0 – to promote their missions.

Virginia Tech's True Life video contest entries are on YouTube.

Looks like 56 two-minute entries.

Here's the most viewed so far, by Kevin.  Very clever.

  1. From Valleywag:

    “This week’s Democratic Party weekly address by our audaciously hopeful President-elect will not be on boring old NPR. Barack Obama’s going to upload to YouTube, reports the Washington Post. The WaPo says the Obama administration will also make “online Q&As and video interviews” part of its communications strategy. Think this is payback for Google CEO Eric Schmidt’s late-to-the-game Obama endorsement?

    If so, it’s scant reward for America’s CTO. If transition co-chair Valerie Jarrett’s two-minute talk yesterday is any indicator, most of these clips will be no more exciting than a White House press release. Obama himself, though, has one of the most awesome telepresences I’ve ever seen. Mr. President, get yourself a bulldog and a skateboard and you’ll blow Avril Lavigne and Justin Laipply right off the Most Viewed (All Time) page.”
