The videoless lecture

Unfortunately the video I had planned which would tell the world about Bessler, ( well an assortment of retired engineers with time on their hands) did not turn out quite as I had hoped. It was decided that my lack of charisma might have a stupifying effect on the audience and anyway my pc froze at the prospect of some minor editing, so it was agreed that I would read the text of the video to my good friend in Florida and he, having recorded same, would then play it to the assembled throng (I use the word in its loosest meaning) with some suitable projected images to enliven my spoken words.

Apparently it went down rather well amongst the entire audience of 23, (Dave are you sure you don't mean 230?) and now they know as much as I do about Johann Bessler.

Anyway I decided that the video which I had originally planned to post on youtube would send anyone who innocently perchanced to light upon it, into a dangerous zomby state, so I am rewriting the script and making it altogether more punchy and of course much shorter. I have arranged for some charisma pills to be taken just before filming begins so - watch this space for an announcement!

The Johann Bessler Video

I'm still working on my video. I never realised how hard it is to get something that looks good in writing, not to look too long winded when spoken. I have tried to cut the wordiness down as much as possible without losing the important information as well as the viewers attention. I am supposed to limit it to fifteen minutes and so far I'm on seventeen. A few more judicious snips of the editing tool, and it'll be ready for youtube!

My family asked me why I am writing this blog and yet I haven't advertised the fact, well the answer is simple. I don't want to tell anyone about it yet until I can look back at it and think, maybe its ok - or maybe I'll just delete it and say nothing!

There is also the fact that as time goes by, I shall add more information about Bessler's Code, and of course once the video is on youtube and I can see how many viewings (if any!) it gets, I might tell someone about the blog - or not.

That's it for now but I'll be back.

A Video about Johann Bessler aka Orffyreus

I'm busy making a video about Johann Bessler aka Orffyreus, for presentation to a group of retired engineers in Florida in March. I've never made one before so its a bit of a steep learning curve. I have threatened to post it to youtube once its been seen by the retirees. We'll see. Maybe, maybe not. It all depends on how embarrassing its going to be for me!

I set out with the intention of making it about three minutes long but its already six minutes and growing. I guess once I've recorded it I'll take the editing knife to it. Watch this space.

The Legend of Bessler's Wheel and my latest Update

I'm putting the brief account of Johann Bessler's Wheel back up for a short time because I am concentrating on writing (rewriting!)...
