In what strikes me as a very smart move, San Francisco-based technology company BuzzLogic (buzzlogic.com ) recently launched a video blog (that’s “v-log” for you techies) dubbed “The BuzzLogic Vino Diaries” in which a company staffer interviews guests while sipping wine. Shot in wine bars in San Francisco’s tech-centric SoMa district, episodes explore social media topics such as blogging and online communities against the backdrop of a wine tasting.
And while some may dismiss BuzzLogic’s use of wine tasting in its videos as a gimmick to make tech talk seem sexier, I see it as a clever move to differentiate the company’s v-logs from the many other tech-themed videos that hit the Web each day. You can judge for yourself any time by perusing completed episodes online, or wait just a couple of weeks and check out an interview/tasting with yours truly. That’s right, I’ll be a guest on an upcoming episode that’s being shot this week, and you can check back here for a link to watch it when it’s live. And in a move befitting the social networking bent of BuzzLogic, their editor found me – but of course – on Facebook.
