Doug’s Neat Friends 01 – John Braheny – from Seesmic

Doug’s Neat Friends is a new concept I wanted to try out using the Seesmic.com Video Chat/Conversation service. On Seesmic you can make a video post and other members can reply and then you reply..and so on. Since I have so many neat friends, I wanted to bring them into the conversation and share their knowledge and information with everyone on Seesmic and, also here on the blog.

Don’t be afraid to play with new services and new technologies or new uses for older technologies when it comes to new media. You never know just what you might create.

My first “neat friend” today was John Braheny, author of The Craft and Business of Songwriting. John is a highly respected member of the music industry community and has taught me everything I know about the music business and songwriting.

Below, you will see a video player for my initial message from John and then links below that which allow you to view the entire conversation, held over the course of an hour or so.

Please let me know your comments using the comments link below. I’d love to hear what you think of this method of “interview” and how it might be improved or expanded.
