Oh thank goodness. This previous weekend I discovered that just about everybody finds logging video tedious. I was at the Nieman Foundation’s 70th Anniversary convocation and telling my story of woe about logging the video I had shot in Malawi to associates who are tv producers and documentary makers. The Plumpy’Nut publish acquired the greatest variety of unique page views. In fact, even my posts from 2007 on the controversy surrounding the patent for this nutritional complement, which helps to avoid wasting the lives of ravenous children, nonetheless get plenty of hits. Intriguingly, views of the the post on the demand for Plumpy’nut peaked in July, two months after the post first appeared.
