I started a new adventure this week. After 4 great years at Simply Youth Ministry, I’ve returned to Youth Specialties. I’m super excited about the opportunity. When I was serving in a church as a paid youth worker, I used their resources all the time and recieved encouragement and training from their events, and in 1998 I had the opportunity to join the YS team running the store at events and the IT guy for the office. Now I return as the Director of Digital Marketing which means I’ll be planning and building websites, plus dreaming up new ways we can serve youth workers online.
What does this mean for the blog? Not much, we’ll still be bringing you the same geeky thoughts, ideas and resources to help you in your ministry.
If you are coming to the National Youth Workers Convention this fall in San Diego or Atlanta please track me down and say “Hi”, I’ll also be leading a few technology seminars. I’d love to grab a coffee and talk about geeky stuff.
Also, if you’d like to know what crazy projects I’m working on, follow me on my new YS twitter account YSChrisDavis.
Many of you liked the digital nativity video from Christmas. Igniter video has now done one for Easter.
If you want to use it for your services, you can pick it up HERE.
Description from their site:
Throughout the course of his public ministry, Jesus knew both the adoration and desertion of the crowds. Today, just as 2,000 years ago, the gospel asks a question that demands an answer: Will we follow? This video illustrates this truth through the dynamic lens of a 21st-century social network.
I loved this video. Great way to image the birth of Jesus in our digital age.
Twitter announced today some upcoming changes to it’s web interface. They seem to be trying to bring a lot of the features that we all love about the various desktop clients we love to the web. They plan on splitting the screen in two, allowing one half to be your update stream and the second to be your followers, any media embedded into the stream, trends, and more. It’s a little reminiscent of the drawers they use in the new iPad app they released a few weeks ago. I don’t know if it will be enough to sway me from using Tweetie, but we’ll see.
Check out this video they made to show it off:
And just in case you don’t already, you can follow all the geekiness of this site at @ymgeek.
Working on some new stuff, but in the mean time enjoy this awesome video. I love these guys.
