I accosted a bunch of people and asked them three questions: “Who are you and what do you do?”, “What’s great?”, and “What sucks?” Herewith the resulting video podcast, one minute 45 seconds in length. It started out high-def and even though it’s only 400x225, it looks pretty decent for Web video. There’s a cost: it’s about 93M in size. [Several have written me to point out that this is insanely large. Well yes, I know. I won’t compromise on quality for the same reason that I won’t compromise on JPEG settings for the images I publish here; but I’ve seen some suggestions for how I might save space without sacrificing it.]

Today’s crowd is mostly Sun employees; I’ll try to branch out more in future days. The Quicktime video is here.
