St. Louis as you’ve never seen it

It seems I only post things here when I want something. Right now, I want you to watch this video:

The 2011 Society for News Design conference will be in St. Louis; this is a promotional video for that conference. It was created by Brian Williamson, our Flash expert at the St. Louis Post-Dispatch and all-around illustrative genius. The music was created by Christopher Ave, our political editor at the St. Louis Post-Dispatch and the official songwriter of journalism. (Remember “Copy Editor’s Lament (The Layoff Song)”? That’s his too.)

    If you’re interested in SND (and specifically SND St. Louis, which I promise will have a little bit of something for everyone*), then there’s:

  • Website: sndstl.com
  • Twitter: @sndstl
  • Facebook: fb.me/sndstl

And if you’re interested in things I’m working on or talking about, follow me on Twitter: @ericasmith.

* That promise is easier to keep if you’ll tell me what you want to see at SND STL. I have a ton of ideas, but really that’s just a conference for my amusement. So if you’ve got ideas, share them.
