What a week we just had! Microsoft invited three Visio MVPs and book authors to record 24 short videos on Visio. They will be published gradually over the next few months. We converged on Microsoft’s studios in Redmond from Boston, Germany and the UK for two days of intensive filming. It was enlightening, enriching and exhausting. The videos will only be a few minutes long each (apparently most online viewers can only last 90 seconds), but they cover a wide area of Visio uses, and contain a few good productivity tips.
My fellow MVP video hosts are : Scott Helmers (the one with the beard below) who wrote Microsoft Visio 2010 Step By Step (see http://www.visiostepbystep.com/ ), and Chris Roth, aka VisGuy, who is the author of Using Visio 2010 http://www.visguy.com/2011/05/19/using-microsoft-visio-2010-book-is-here/ . And, of course, I have written two books on Visio …. I’m not in the photos because I took them ….
So, look out for these videos appearing on Microsoft’s website, or one one of our blogs….

The mind-boggling array of video can computer hardware alone made the visit worthwhile. Better yet, the professional filming crews kept us laughing, and preserved our egos. There was even the odd dab of makeup, and someone who made sure our shirts were ironed! You can see a few behind-the-scenes shots over on David Parker’s blog. […]
