My Daughter's Katrina Movie

My daughter Kalypso made an 11 minute Quicktime video about New Orleans, Mardi Gras, and the recovery effort now six months after the hurricane/flood. I think she did a great job, especially for a 10-year-old.
You can see the movie here (314 meg) or a smaller version here (97 meg). The bandwidth frequently is exceeded on this site, so:

I also put it on YouTube.

Hi, I'm Jon Nelson. Let's see, I know Mike Whybark, Who knows Bart, who knows you. I have a blog of my own. I was so impressed with your daughter's movie that I posted a link to it. I hope that's OK. If not, let me know and I'll take down the post. My email is njon(at)sonic(dot)net. My web site is at
My blog is a fairly confusing mix of trade union politics, lefty talk, music and Christianity. Your daughter is a very talented and insightful young woman.

Hi.. I saw your video linked off of B's site.. I teach undergraduate students studying to be teachers about using technology at IU. Please tell your daughter that I am sharing a link to her video with my students so they can see how loud, strong, important, and persuasive an elementary student's voice can be, especially when they speak through video. Thank you and Calypso for taking the time to make and publish it!

There have been problems with the server for Kalypso's site. You can see it on You Tube though. Click the link above.

She did a great job. My 8 year old son watched it and it lead to a bunch of questions. He's aware of what happened having had kids in his school that had evacuated and our being from New Orleans. It's the first thing he's seen from a kid's point of view. I put it up on my blog, hope that that was okay with you.
