Example video

Here's an example of a video I made a few weeks ago. This will give you an idea of the style/format I'm thinking.

Church Videos in plain english - thoughts?

OK, I finally got around to making a video --only it's related to Proposition 8 in California, not Family Search. Now that I've made 1 video, I'm thinking of making more. Specifically, I'd like to make a series of videos related to the Mormon church. For example: The Plan of Salvation in plain engli...

I've been using gpsvisualizer , which is a batch geocoder using the Yahoo Maps API. I've done spot checking of output and it appears to be fairly accurate. There are some issues. Like it pin-points a single spot for all addresses residing in trailer parks and military bases. It seems like most Map A...

Emergency Response Tool

I was recently asked to implement and emergency response plan in our ward. Specifically, the Bishopric asked me to divide the ward into proximate geographic regions, each consisting of a roughly-equal number of ward members. Within each region a leader was assigned and given a list of all members in...

FamilySearch in Plain English

The church should create a video similar to those on commoncraft.com (see here for example) to introduce FamilySearch. These commoncraft videos are very entertaining and informative, but most importantly simple. It would be a great way to get people excited about the new FamilySearch website. I may ...

eqideaexchange.com - is this model fundamentally flawed?

Hi, I build a site ( eqideaexchange.com ) as a collaborative tool for EQ presidents to share ideas, documents, templates, etc. The idea is to create a knowledge base so that each successive EQ president isn't reinventing the wheel trying to get organized or develop programs. So far I haven't had muc...

Thoughts on how to make this idea succeed

Hi all, I'm kind of new to this whole web development arena. I'm looking for a little advice from you pro's out there. Would anyone be willing to take a quick look at my site ( eqideaexchange.com ) then help me with the following questions?: Are there any serious problems with the UI (e.g. use of gr...

Thanks for your 2 cents. I actually tried to figure out how we could administer this through the home teaching program. But there are a few problems with this model: 1. We don't assign families geographically. Our ward is about 20 minutes driving from one end to the other. This is fine for a once a ...
