In and Out hearing video highlights

With yesterday's In and Out testimony at the ethics committee yesterday I decided to take my first crack at video blogging, and make a video with some of the highlights of the testimony and my comments. The result follows:

I'm not overly happy with how it turned out. My camera and mic are pretty poor quality, I was plagued by technical difficulties, and I need some better editing software. After spending too much of yesterday evening playing around with it I just decided to call it a day and go with it as is. It's a first attempt though, I'll try some different things in the future and get it right hopefully one of these days. And of course I should have been saying Mayrand, not Maynard.
