In the 1980s videos were made with video cameras

Actual cameras, either a separate camera connected to a video recorder, or a camera and VCR combination in one unit- the camcorder. Oh, and oh yeah, you recorded that video onto a tape- which essentially is this super long plastic ribbon coated with magnetic particles. It’s a miracle they worked as well as they did.

So, now…

That I could just pick up this tablet I am typing this on and make a video is still amazing when I actually think about it.

That the tablet I am typing this on exists is in itself still amazing when I think how recently a device like this would be used by characters in a sci-fi show.

That I can pick up a phone that does what this tablet does and is also a phone feels like it should be blowing my mind every time I realize that it’s true.

There is not a video here though. Just some thoughts about making them.

Thanks for reading.

Bye, for now.
