Video Editing Tools on a Budget

As a follow-up to my equipment list to what is in my HD mobile video kit, I wanted to discuss some of the affordable video software that is available.

I use every tool on this list. Some of them don’t fit my exact needs as an individual (but they do fit client needs.)

This is the ‘softer’ side of reputation management. It isn’t about SEO, RSS feeds, or API data. It is about the cultural and social side of reputation management: the part that affects how our private and professional lives interact.

The original question:

It’s not personal it’s business…or is it: Has social media eliminated the existence of ‘Strictly Professional’ relationships?
Social media has comfortably melded (or dangerously blurred) the boundaries between professional & personal environments. Has this caused one’s personal life to become an integrated part of one’s professional persona?
