Has anyone else besides me seen a real need for a weekly video podcast for RepRap? I LOVE watching videos by/about other people in the hobby, but most interviews I see are by people who don't know much about the hobby, so you spend 3 minutes with them asking questions like "So that's plastic right? When will the robot revolution come? What can it print?, and Bre, how do you do that with your hair?".
I would love to see a Weekly vidcast for RepRap that had:
-Little tips that people tend to have a hard time grasping, like how to wrap nichrome, to set up and operate skein forge, the difference between the electronics, etc
-A non company view of the printers. How awesome would it be to see an interview with the Makerbot, UP!, Mendel-Parts, Botmill, Techzone, The RepRap core team, Ultimaker, Makergear, Ultimachine, 3dink, BfB, the list goes on and on, where the questions come from the community (sent via twitter), and they all get to show off on a show directed at our community.
-How great would it be if we had someone from our community going around interviewing people at the NY Makerfair? I wanted an Interview with Rick from Makergear, and Tony Buser, Someone at Makerbot besides Bre or Zack, or how about the other folks that where there, I saw some awesome bots in the pics, but we don't know anything about them.
I could think of a 100 things I would love to see in a nice 4-5 minutes pod cast each week, the only issue is I really don't want to do it myself, mostly because.
-I am a overweight white dude, not exactly the image I think we want to portray.
-I am from the Southern United States, and I have an accent that does not convey... intelligence :)
-You have likely seen my videos, the video quality is good, but the production quality is really poor, I don't have a communications degree, and it shows.
A. Start a pod cast and hope someone comes along and does it better than me and lets me off the hook.
B. Just drop it, there is no need/let someone with more skill start it.
Please do me a favor and respond in the comments, I am very on the fence about this idea.
BTW I got my Gen6 Electronics and motors in, and 1 of my Prusa Mendels is nearly completed, and 2 others are started, videos and pics hopefully later this week :)
