Community Indicators- Vlogged Public Thanks
Griff Wigley, a guy who has been into online community and online interaction for a long time, especially civic interaction, has been experimenting with vlogged (video blogged) public thanks to people. Public thanking, like the public welcoming of Seb Paquet (search for the word welcome on his blog to see the practice in action), strike me as community indicators. They say "you matter in the context of us - the community or group." Take a look Videoblogging for leadership
"I'm trying to learn my way into how videoblogging (vlogging) can be an effective leadership tool. The idea in these clips:
- verbal tone, gestures, and facial expressions can sometimes convey emotional impact more easily and effectively than plain text
- posting a personal thanks to a public blog like the clip above to Dylan and Julian is somewhat equivalent to saying thanks to an individual in a roomful of people. It widens the impact."
