Microsoft and Technology: A familiar Olympic commercial, plus some video embedding tips

If you’ve been watching NBC’s Winter Olympics coverage, or even the Super Bowl earlier this month, you’ve likely seen a Microsoft commercial over and over again. This message discusses the wonders of today’s technology, giving “voice to the voiceless” – in this case, focusing on former NFL player Steve Gleason. With its emphasis on technological advances, the commercial is a good candidate to be included in the DIG3286 (Assembling Digital Media) course in twenty years or so – maybe the Spring 2036 version.

The YouTube link for the video is available at http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=qaOvHKG0Tio. But it’s also possible to embed a YouTube video within a WordPress post. It’s pretty easy. First, go to the URL of the video you’d like to embed. Click “Share,” which should be just below the video screen. Then, select “Embed.” This will bring up a long string of code. You’ll want to copy that code and paste it into your blog post. Once you’re done, the result will look something like this:

This can be useful as the blogging adventure continues.
