Here’s the announcement I’ve been working on for the last several weeks: my new YouTube channel is up and running! I’m very excited to announce the Grand Opening of Shouting From The Rooftops.

The link to the first video:
https://youtu.be/cTl-0NnhuDk

This is my effort to convey the things that inspire my sense of curiosity, fascination, awe and wonder. They are miniatures; 5 minutes or so is my aim. They will run the gamut from science to history to great books I’ve loved to just things I think people might want to know about.

I’ve made the first four videos, and have just released the first one. Well really the third one, because there’s an enormous learning curve and I didn’t want to lead with my first meager effort! I’ll be releasing two a week for the first two weeks and then the goal is a new one each week if I can keep up. Please excuse the awkwardnesses and the missings-of-the-mark in these first several. I’m working hard to improve!

Two requests: please subscribe as I need 100 subscribers in order to qualify for a dedicated YouTube URL, ie something along the lines of YouTube/ShoutingFromTheRooftops. Also, may I ask you to please forward to anyone you think might be interested?

Thank you, and I hope you enjoy!

Stellar, Congrats and best wishes on your efforts. I'll have to join YouTube to subscribe, but I'm happy to do it.

>5 clamairy: I’ll get there, but the pace has slowed. Guess it’s better to be the tortoise than the hare...
The important part is I’m enjoying making them, and I think the fifth one is considerably better than the first. Third one to be released this weekend.
Thanks for watching!

Ah, but there's bad news/good news. The bad news is I haven't yet subscribed (because I have to sign up for a youTube account). The good news is that'll be one more.

>7 pmackey: I’m a glass half full kind of person, or at least I try to be. So I’ll take that as good news!
