This is where thoughts become things.

Hi, I'm Daniela. Welcome to my personal lair on the Internet. This is where I write about storytelling, activism, technology and pop culture. Sometimes I post videos. I update my lair when the mood strikes me. Follow me on Twitter for daily updates (@dcap).

Nylon Mag’s online vids & Getting out of the office! WoOt!

I love Nylon Magazine!


I don’t know what I love more – the fact that I can get entire issues online for free in a cool flippity format or the fact that they now have an online video channel.

…Unfortunately, the quality of their videos is sadly, quite crappy. And it doesn’t matter how great your content is if people can barely stand watching it.

Here are some examples of magazines doing the online video thing a tad (ok, a lot) better for my already over used peepers:

National Geographic


But to be fair, I also found a magazine with an even worse offering of video – Seventeen. It looks like they haven’t updated their video extras area since 2005. How do I know this? Because I worked on the MTV reality show “Miss Seventeen” and that is the only content that is living there (as of today). Woops! I wonder how many teen girls even bother to visit the site in the first place. It seems pretty dead.

Heh heh. Yes, tis true. Bright and early I am accompanying producer Tami on a bilingual bands shoot. This will be my first experience on an MTV News shoot, being that I work for the digital side. It will be an interesting experience working on a project from both realms – the on air & the digital. 

Stay tuned for many updates on this because A) I love bilingual bands, B) I pitched the show idea, and C) I plan on promoting the crap out of it. I am looking forward to hearing your thoughts.
