Web Publishing - Week 09

In this week's lectures we looked at video compression and podcasting. For the lab we continued work on the Google Online Marketing Challenge.

Video compression turned out to be quite complex yet easy enough to understand. I actually found that the hardest thing to understand was how someone could come up with the MPEG style of video compression. It's quite ingenious.

I found the lecture on Podcasting to be enjoyable as I myself am a fan of podcasts. I find them great to listen to when going to sleep. We looked at how they came to be and how they were somewhat of a rebirth of the radio.

In the lab on Thursday we worked on refining our currently active Google Adwords campaign. It's going quite well so far.
