Where No Geek Many Geeks Have Gone Before

beam-out-4

As James Lileks wrote a few years ago when he broke down the subtext and leitmotifs of the score for Star Trek's "Doomsday Machine" episode, "I think this will be the stupidest, most geeked-out thing I’ve ever written. I think I need an intervention: dude, it was one cheesy episode of one cheesy show. Give it up."

Similarly, having doped out how to do a decent transporter effect for the end of last week's edition of Silicon Graffiti, I figured I'd write up a how-to article, which is over at Blogcritics. If you've ever wondered how do beam yourself into or out of your own video...well, now's your chance.

K'plah!
