This is a fun way to send video messages. With Bubblejoy and a webcam you can make a great video card you can send by e-mail. I found the site in Nik Peachey´s blog along with other great stuff I´m going to publish shortly. Always great of resources found there, great blog Nik!
The image above is a screenshot of a message I´ve just sent to a colleague and dear friend, Camila Sousa, who is moving to teach in the US. Camila, hope you have a wonderful experience there.
