Hi, Sam
I have been watching your videos silently and they have inspired me a lot. So the new video I jus uploded on EnVideo (and the ones that are coming in the next few days) owes a lot to you.
BTW: Im preparing a new blog that I hope will be the definitive integration of my writings and my videos. I will tell you when I have it ready to go.
