Holy Hell, Today

[Dutch Lock Down Day Two Hundred Thirteen]

I submitted a code for Equinix’s virtual hackathon. And spoke at Fedora Women’s Day about being non-binary and talking about mental health and my Fedora story. And then I streamed a new escape room game.

Vlogging vs Streaming

[Dutch Lock Down Day One Hundred Eighty Six]

The edit.

That’s it.

The difference between vlogging and streaming is editing.

But first the news:

Streaming media is multimedia that is constantly received by and presented to an end-user while being delivered by a provider. The verb to stream refers to the process of delivering or obtaining media in this manner. Streaming refers to the delivery method of the medium, rather than the medium itself.

A video blog or video log, sometimes shortened to vlog, is a form of blog for which the medium is video, and is a form of web television. Vlog entries often combine embedded video with supporting text, images, and other metadata. Entries can be recorded in one take or cut into multiple parts.

The more I know, the more I know I don’t know.

But first the news:

I’ll talk about all the things I learned, but first, do you want to see the video I posted?

First, lower your expectations.

And fill your heart with joy, support, and encouragement.

Now, LOOK!

Where’s The Consistency, Leander?

[Dutch Lock Down Day One Hundred Sixty Two]

I didn’t stream today.


But first the news:

But I have a great excuse… see… cause…

I just didn’t wanna.
