For Christmas, I got a dash cam. I’ve been taping silly dash cam videos of drivers the past few months and compiling them onto YouTube.
I think maybe 30 people have watched. Until last week, when a newspaper reporter wrote to say they wanted to write a quick blurb on their web site, with a link to my videos. Which is cool.
Now, Channel 4 is calling me wanting to do a news story. Must be a slow news day.
A few points to mention, though I doubt few will read this:
- I do not handle the camera while driving. It has a fish-eye lens and do zooms and crops later in a video editor.
- I am a hypocrite. I make plenty of driving mistakes. But like any human being, I’m still happy to pass judgement on others — especially when they almost crash into my car.
Well, I guess that’s about it.
