SES Chicago 2007 – Should Kevin Ryan Make a Hammer Video?

During the universal search session, the usefulness of video in regards to boring business items was discussed. Kevin Ryan asserted, “Should I make a video of me hitting myself with a ball peen hammer?”

I’m sitting here in Kitty O’Shea’s in Chicago and Jim Hedger says “Yes, I would pay to see that!”

Greg Jarboe says, “I’d advertise on that video because the video would get a lot of cheap hits.”

What do you think? If enough people agree with Jim, maybe Kevin Ryan will be making his hammer debut on Youtube!

    Sorry to be picky, but it should be “ball-peen” hammer:

    “The original function of the hammer was to “peen” riveted or welded material so that it will exhibit the same elastic behavior as the surrounding material.” http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Ball-peen_hammer

    And yes, I’d watch.

    Carolyn,

    Thanks for the much needed correction! I appreciate it and have corrected it.

    I should have noticed it when I got scarce content looking for a picture! Thanks again!
