Hmmm, interesting idea, Rhonda...

We could give it a try.

OK, Rhonda, we're giving it a try. Here's the new Social Media Topic for Members of The D-Word.

We are but your humble servants.

In reply to Ben Kempas's post on Sat 30 May 2009 :

After reflection, we've decided to rename the new topic to Social Networking for Filmmakers
aka Social Networking so as not to confuse with films that campaign for social change

Sean Flynn should post about his use of Twitter. He has some good tips.


Ben Kempas

Yes, and there now is a topic for this, Rhonda: Social Networking !


Doug Block

Yup, calling all twits...

I'm having an iPhone glitch when trying to post on D-word. If I hit the back/delete button, it erases either the whole word, the whole sentence or the whole post. It only happens (so far) on D-word. Any suggestions?


Magdalena Hutter

Same thing here...

Is this a recent thing or has it been like this all along? Can other iPhone users confirm?

(Note to self: Start a separate fund-raising drive for a mobile version.)

suggest you join the rest of us plebs sitting calmly behind their computers interacting on the d-word.

Well, The D-Word was never designed for mobile phones. But it runs fine on mine (Nokia E90). However, we could do a poll and see how many people want a streamlined version with less data load for their phones.


Mikal Jakubal

The data load is fine. Actually, D-word is one of the faster loads at home on my slow connection. It's just the typing deal that is the problem.

I used to have that problem, but I'm not aware of it any more. Have you done a iPhone software update Mikal? That might help.


Mikal Jakubal

Huh, no, but I've only had it a couple months and they updated it when I bought it. I think the new software is available. I'll check on that...

Latest iPhone upgrade seems to have fixed it.

Just wondering if the category "Video Essay" has any traction? Not 'documentary' in the purist sense. I'd call the docu-drama sections of the video I'm working on "documentation of the future".


John Burgan

This topic is for questions about The D-Word, David- but FWIW, "Video Essay" is fine – although it might not ring everyone's bell.

Hi, John, Hope to see you at Folklife Festival. I'll be there mid-day Saturday. Will you?
I thought this section was also for 'ideas for future D-Word ... projects' ... such as attention to video essays. Where, then, would that suggestion best be made?


John Burgan
Fri 26 Jun 2009Link

Your question could have gone in Developing Stories or Works in Progress

I was briefly at the festival today, off to NY tomorrow but back early July, maybe see you then...

Actually, the topics suggested by John are only accessible to Members of The D-Word, not to Enthusiasts. But there's always the Mentoring Room for these kinds of questions.
