CNMC 2010

The third annual Catholic New Media Celebration took place in Boston on August 6-8, 2010. You can view the Keynotes and Workshops on Ustream on the SQPN ustream channel.

Jeff Geerling prepared an excellent roundup of post CNMC podcasts, pictures and posts on the Archdiocese of St. Louis Office of Web Development blog.

During the conference and the weeks to follow, conversation on social media networks used the hashtag #cnmc , Greg Willits spearheaded the use of the #cathmedia tag for general use when discussing Catholic media.


During the CNMC I asked various people to record the prayers and reflections on the mysteries of the rosary.  I’m pleased to offer here the first set of mysteries in the CNMC Online Catholic Community rosary.  Listen closely to hear the voices of familiar/ and not so familiar bloggers, podcasters and people producing Catholic media.  I was honored to have Cardinal Seán O’Malley from the Archdiocese of Boston begin the rosary with the Apostles Creed.  Thanks to all who participated to make this rosary a special celebration of the online Catholic community.

The past 3 years, I’ve gotten into the habit of creating video promos for the Catholic New Media Celebration, which is occuring this year in Boston on August 6-8.

I created a video promo for CNMC MMX using the Google Search Stories creator.

Here is my 2008 promo, with slight updates.

Mp3 of the CNMC Blues

Our 2009 promo was a parody of ‘Is Anybody Going to San Antone?’ Adam Hendey helped out on flute recorded by his mom, Lisa Hendey begin_of_the_skype_highlighting     end_of_the_skype_highlighting begin_of_the_skype_highlighting     end_of_the_skype_highlighting ( ). Dan Harms from Popple provide a tasty guitar solo. ( ). My always supportive wife and daughter helped shoot the video and make cameo appearances.
