Many Choices for Online Video

Live Stream: via mobile phone or computer. Here is my live channel on Qik and here is Peter Liu’s, a new “Qikker” on Maui; all videos streamed via my iPhone. Here is a link to the local Hawaii chapter of Social Media Club’s live stream; we broadcast our monthly meetings.
Web Cam: direct from your computer. Here is a video from Dr. Mercola, with over 500K views.
Screencast/Slideshow: screen pictures, demos, photos assembled into movement
Here is the updated version of Erik Qualman’s Social Media Revolution (4 minutes, all stats!)
