Please help me find video presentation about psychology of programming

Some time ago (maybe four years) I saw a video of a presentation about psychology of computer programming by a man who said he was writing a book about it. He also had a blog where he discussed the book. It wasn't a single blog post about the topic, but a specialised blog about the psychology of programming. I can't find either. [more inside]

Simplest setup for unembarrassing Youtube video creation

What are the simplest requirements -- in terms of both technology (camera/software/etc.) and lighting/clothing/makeup/background setting/etc. -- to make a reasonably good-looking Youtube video that will feature just one speaker talking. Are iMovie and an iSight camera inadequate?

Help me find two animations from early-mid 2000s

There were two animations I saw years ago pre-youtube that have stuck with me, but I no longer have a link to the animation itself, or even name. However, I'm pretty sure I originally found these animations here on metafilter. One was a live-action city being invaded by fun animated characters. The other was a Japanese Red Riding Hood-esque animation (much more animation than this: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=3oEhxd16f0A). So if you can help me figure out what these are from my loose recollection, I will be amazed. [more inside]

Is there a mobile webcam that can stream video w/o WiFi?

I would like to put a streaming webcam on the front of a large piece of machinery as it goes about its daily business. The problem is that this piece of machinery will most likely be outside of WiFi range for the majority of its day. However, it will be within good cellphone/4G range. Are there webcams built to handle this kind of use? Any recommendations if so? (Or, potentially, could I just use a smartphone or something similar?)

Best video games for two?

What are the best collaborative 2-player video games? My husband and I played Mario Galaxy 2 and it was perfect - he player Mario and I played "Starfy" and it worked out great. Are there more games like that for 2 players, where one player (aka me) can be kind of bad at video games? We have a Wii, some computers and are considering getting an Xbox One in the next few months..

How to download videos in Safari 7.0 like could be done on Snow Leopard?

I'm all ready to upgrade to Mavericks (OSX 10.9) except for one thing. On Snow Leopard (10.6.8), I am able to open Safari's "Activity window" and see most video files as they're loading there (however, not certain sites like Hulu). From that window, it's an easy Option-Click to download said video file. Safari 7.0 doesn't have this ability. Is there a Safari 7.0 add-on or something that will bring this ability back to Safari?

How do I get permissions to use YouTube videos for my own work of "art"?

How do I go about getting permission/releases to use YouTube videos like lectures by Ram Dass, Timothy Leary, Noam Chomsky, Alan Watts, and other personages for my own video project? I would be using them for a fictional movie. One of the characters watches these a lot. Is this just something I have to research on an individual basis, or are there any shortcuts I might benefit from knowing about? Thanks. (I feel like I'm always asking the same question in different forms.)

What is an embeddable video player for multiple short videos?

Do you guys know of any plugins or sites that allow you to display videos in a way where there is 1 short video playing and has a bunch of short videos cued up next in line? Sort of like how on Youtube you are watching one video but there are a bunch of little thumbnails of the next videos to the right, but something you can take out of a site like Youtube and embed into another site, without the ads hopefully.

Looking for program for video montage / randomly creating video on PC

I have a 2yr old and lots of video I take almost daily: I love how the iOS apps Qwiki and FrameBlast automatically/randomly cut and assemble videos on my iPhone to make a video montage - sometimes it lands on a really nice selection and I feel wonderful sense of serendipity. With little or no effort, I have a great video to share with friends and family. What are some PC desktop equivalent software programs that will make a very busy guy's family video montage creation easier?

Video Game Design Software

My son, who will be turning 12 this month just told me that he wants a video game design software program for his birthday. He is already adept at website coding and has Microsoft's Kodu game design software, but finds Kodu very limiting. He is better at Photoshop than most of my colleagues at work and is generally very computer literate. His favorite game to play is Minecraft, so I expect that this is an example of the type of game that he would like to be able to create. [more inside]

Pro-science Anti-anti-vaccine Animated Web Video from Australia or NZ?

I recently saw a great animated piece expressing exasperation (that I share) with the anti-vaccine, pro-feelgood-pseudoscience crowd. It was from Australia or New Zealand (maybe somewhere in the UK?), it rhymed, it was clever and stylized in a way I want to reference to an artist friend. Ringing any bells for anyone, or have the vaccines rotted your brains, too?

Software for low-res screen capture + audio

As part of an effort to better track my time and increase self-accountability while I'm working from home on easily procrastinatible projects, I'd like to record what I'm doing online and provide an running commentary. For example, I'd like the video to capture that I'm typing this question on mefi, and my voiceover explaining what I'm doing and how (if?) it contributes to what I'm trying to accomplish. I need something more than apps that track how much time on which websites. The apps and methods I've tried or seen are aimed at distribution of the final product for videos, on-line training, etc. They require a lot of processing power and produce large files. I'm looking for something that's lightweight and saves (by default, not by compression later) as a small file. Resolution is not an issue; the lower the better. The easier to install and use the better. [more inside]

Help me tweak my bike fit and/or technique

I'm getting a bit of pain in my left knee when cycling recently, so I stuck my bike on the trainer and shot a couple of videos (side, front). I'm planning a trip to both the doctors and a professional bike fitting, but in the mean time (seeing as I still need to bike to work everyday), I was wondering if any of our cycling MeFites could take a look and see if there's anything obvious to fix? On a first look at the videos, it looks like I'm really stretching at the bottom of my pedal stroke (even though it totally doesn't feel like it on the bike) - should I lower my saddle and try to keep a more level foot? In case it's relevant, I'm interested in comfort and not at all interested in speed, so feel free to recommend stuff that will make me slower if you think it'll result in a more comfortable ride!
