As longtime readers of PostSecret.com, a site that publishes anonymous postcard confessions, we were excited about meeting and talking with its founder Frank Warren.
Frank, who considers himself an “accidental artist,” gave a standing-room-only talk at the Reading Public Museum in Reading, PA this past weekend, where PostSecret postcards have been on display since June.
In this segment, Frank shares how PostSecret evolved from a one-time community art project into the global online phenomenon it’s become. (As of this writing, Technorati ranks PostSecret the eighth most popular blog in the blogosphere.)
In a follow-up segment we’ll publish later this month, Frank talks about upcoming book projects and why he decided to use a blog to post secrets. We’ll also share a few clips from his museum lecture.
The PostSecret exhibit at Reading Public Museum ends on October 7.
NOTE TO READERS: Frank tells us that Berks.TV is his first video blog interview! A big thanks to Frank and the wonderful staff at Reading Public Museum who spent so much time talking with us this weekend.
