The Torch in Paris: An Experiment

The staff are eager to develop a multimedia aspect to the Bakker Bugle. Here’s their first experience: Part One of the story of Will following the Olympic Torch through Paris.

This is a Quicktime movie, so there may be technical snags. Please let us know, in the comments, if you have trouble. Also, you may need to press your space-key to move to the next “slide” at some points.

    Okay, it looks like “a company” doesn’t play well with Quicktime. You can look for a format that is acceptable to a company in the near future. Good grief!

    In the meantime, this should work from any computer that isn’t set up by the fearful IT personnel of a company. And Mac users, go to town!

    Will, if what you are trying to show me is a green square in the middle of my browser, good work! Very avant-garde… I always thought of France as dark blue, french blue if I may call it that…. Blue conveys importance and confidence without being somber or sinister. I feel that this is an accurate portrayal of France (at least in the mind of a Frenchman.) The color green denotes balance, harmony, and stability. I’ve never thought of France as a harmonious, stable society. I typically think of the guillotine and class battles between the haves and have nots… However, your green square has taught me that my thinking is completely wrong, and that I am stuck in the 18th century…

    Either that, or my Quicktime plug in didn’t work. Its one or the other. I apologize for not upgrading to mozilla, firefox, or safari, or whatever browser you would like me to use. If you give me $1,500, I’ll buy a mac for my next computer.

    Dave, we’ll send you twenty euro.

    Wait a few more months and that should get you that new mac (in the US, at least).
