Kid-Friendly RSS Videoblog Feed from Eric Rice

February 26th, 2005 · No Comments

Conversation with my kids on Thursday afternoon:

Me: Do you remember Eric Rice?

Kids: ? [no]

Me: He was with us at dim sum on Sunday.

Kids: At your table or ours?

Me: He was at my table.

Kids: In the orange shirt?

Me: Yes

Kids: He stamped our hands with Mimi’s pens!

Then I showed the kids what Eric had done, creating a Kid-friendly RSS Videoblog feed. Their favorite clip so far was Steve Garfield’s New England Aquarium Fish Tank; great music and transitions. We watched the clips in the feed, and soonthe girls were asking for More!.

Eric described that the idea came to him at our dim sum on Sunday morning – wow!

I had the best time while sitting on the floor of a dim sum restaurant stamping hearts, ladybugs, and happy faces on the hands of the various offspring of Marc and Lisa and Ted and Julie.

It was great to meet Eric. I didn’t realize that he is an at-home dad who manages to produce content (audio, video and text) while caring for his kids! Like Lisa Canter, I wonder how he finds the time to do it all.

Thanks, Eric! I believe that the Kid-Friendly niche is the next wave, along with podcasts like Lisa Williams’ Reading to Rowan series. As families, why not let the kids come along and enjoy the treats of RSS too? If adults treasure the ability to listen to what you want to hear, then I believe parents will appreciate being able to select fresh content for their children to see and hear.
