I feel it is a valuable public service. Also, a technical question. I’ve noticed that your videos are usually razor sharp and well-lit. How do you do it when so many videos posted online, especially on YouTube, are often out of focus, shaky and washed out? Is it the equipment you use? Al: I appreciate the compliment. Yes, I try to use good equipment but you don’t always need the most-expensive, top-of-the-line equipment to get the job done. Most of the video of the speakers was shot with a Sony 560V Handycam, a consumer model that provides excellent high–definition video that can be used on the web and — in some cases — on DVDs.
