I need a new blog

There’s so much happening in videoblogging that I am gonna spin that stuff out to a new blog. Gotta find a new home for this kind of stuff. What kind of stuff? Well, check out “ThisCityRocks.” Focuses on the Canadian music scene. Well done and interesting to listen to and watch. Makes me want to visit Vancouver! Warwick Patterson should be invited to do a session at Northern Voice.

  1. Nice, but it’s not new new. MTV gone local circa 1983, only without the budget, production values, talent and major names. Been there done that, localized micro-broadcasting a nice pitch tho, will find a niche audience, but niche is all it will ever be. It’s Public Access minus the TV. All good, but revolutionary it is not.

  3. Video blogging isn’t all it’s hyped up to be, at least in my opinion. I like an occasional video in a 75% text oriented blog, but blogs that focus mainly on videos aren’t that cool. At that point it’s a video podcast, which I don’ have a problem with, but it’s like calling a documentary or news show a journal.

    That’s my opinion, though.

  5. Vlogs Gone Wild…

    Video Blogging has caught fire as the outlet for democratic on-line journalism. Inevitably, as tools evolve and the vlogging phenomenon propagates in the media outlet gestalt, professional users in the ENG community will wake-up to the possibilities.

  6. I was wondering …why hasnt there been a post from you condemning the attacks on innocent commuters in Bombay. My first reaction is to think “.. he dont care ..coz its not in US, or UK, or anywhere in West .. ” plz tell me that’s not the case …

    I know that yours is a geek blog and not a political blog .. but just over a year ago when tragedy struck London .. you blogged abt it 4 times in a single day ..(http://radio.weblogs.com/0001011/2005/07/07.html#a10559)

    I am sure you have tons of friends who are of Indian origin, but this is the least you can do to show your solidarity with those whom you cant talk in person or email …

  8. I have to be honest – the term “videoblogging” is stupid. A blog is a web log of someone’s thoughts – a podcast generally is a totally different beast. Video blogging generally has a lot more in common with podcasting in nature than blogging.

    “Vlog” “video blog”, etc, are all stupid terms that in my opinion don’t do the medium justice. It’s amazing that with the possibilities in these new types of media, we couldn’t come up with something better than “vlog.”

  10. Wow, you are not kidding about thiscityrocks.com Robert, that is such a great concept and so well executed. I can’t think of a better topic that the live music scene either. Amazingly cheap to do as well, served on youtube, blog through typepad. Man, it just seems like so much more fun :-)

    I feel behind the curve, I’m just starting on episode 3 of a podcast and now I want to do a “thiscityrocks” thing somewhere :-)

    BTW I wouldn’t be surprised if podcasting becomes the term for video and audio in the end, I know right now people are thinking audio, but video podcasting seems a pretty appropriate/accurate term when I have a mixture of video and audio all coming into itunes.

  12. Well, speaking about your blog…

    I’m sometimes getting a 404 on your blog. It happened a couple times this week (and just right now before I posted this).

    Might want to look into that.

    Also,
    Come on MSN sometime! Not like PodTech is gonna force you to use GTalk instead of MSN or something. :-)

  14. Yeah, I’m not too keen on videoblogging either, mostly because there’s no way to skim past the drivel to the good stuff ;). Just post a vid to this blog every once in a while to satisfy your craving!

  18. Like others I’m not to keen on video blogging, the primary reason being that i’d have to wait to see any comments etc, text blogging i can skip comments and skim through them to the best bits.

  20. With video widely available, I think this is worth venturing into.

    I am working on similar kind of project here on WordPress. It’s heavy metal music videos something like Metal-On-Demand kind of stuff.

  22. Its gotta be short and sweet. Anyone know how prevalent its becoming, ie vblogs vs. number of uniques? I have been working with 88Slide a daily one minute trivia contest which is one creative use, wondering if there are other concepts adapting traditional tv models to the web using video.
