Hello Kath, Thank you for your comments! Yes, we are currently in the pr= ocess of testing out plone. The political vice-president of NLY, Audun R=F8= dningsby, is responsible for that tho. I cannot do Everything ;) But yeah,= I advocate Plone, and I have been asked a few weeks ago by the boards of H= ordaland and Bergen Venstre to give proposals to how they could improve the= ir homepages: http://www.venstre.no/hordaland http://www.venstre.no/bergen = (they are so bad I am near tears) I will suggest we use Plone. But we need= a server, and we need skilled people to help install and maintain it.. Sig= h :) Again, thanks for the tip. Raymond [View]

Dylan has talent, that is for sure. But as Jay said, our real success comes not with her being displayed on national TV, but by her having fun, exploring the medium, learning how to edit, and seeing that she is Part of something. A creative process. Shannon is a Very important voice in this forum - we need some cynics ;) Personally I think it is Utterly Crucial to also show that this can have pragmatic Use for people. What Eric B. does with his site is good, but I am also thinking about taking this further, and really Showing how vlogging can be used - not only to talk about your christmas gift or your trip around town, but to come across with Messages. I am primarily a political animal I am afraid. But my politics go way beyond the regular schism of party politics. I want to engage people, and I want people to feel engaged. I don't want it to be ANTI-authoritarian, or ANTI-globalisation or anti-money, or whatever. I want it to be a symbol of the pluralism that we all account for, and as such I LOVE personal vlog entries. Vlogging is really getting quite the hype these days. I know most of us stay calm through this, but I want to stress again: The most important is that We have fun, that We explore this, and that we spread the word and let others have... [View]

I found that article very interesting. I have a similar dilemma here in Norway. Only, my company is not a company, but a political party. And I am becoming more ... wary about my roles here. I am editor of the members magazine of the youth party. I am member of the information committee of the Liberals in my town. I will be central in the information work being done in our city in the campaign, both as webmaster of the homepages, and as active youth politician as such. So, when I blog - or videoblog - am I representing myself or my party? When someone see my name in a news piece in the local newspaper for instance, and they google me, and up comes my weblog, and then... well. Someone once mentioned ethics connected to vlogging - and I am very interested in that. Would it be wrong of me to shoot footage of our party president once he visits the city and holds a speech? (He is the Agricultural minister in Norway and will be Very much in media next summer in connection with the WTO issues -> EU / Developing countries / Subsidies to agriculture / Norwegian farmers pissed off) Imagine me writing about his appearance and me not being 100% supportive of his policy (which I am not). Imagine my post having a Dylan-effect and suddenly becoming a scandal in itself. Well, it is unlikely,... [View]

> what do you think? > i think its imporant we agree on this...so we dont waste our time > tryiong to get people videoblogging who dont care. > its simliar to the pirblem we have in community tv. The way I see it, we don't need to agree on it. I mean, one man's definition of a waste of time might be different from another one's. As I vlogged about earlier, ( http://dltq.blogs.com/vlog/2004/12/keeping_it_simp.html ) I think we need to both worry about the early adopters and the rest. The best way to help the early adopters is well... that is being done already. I just Love the dynamics of this group. People from different countries who Care about videlogging. It is great. But we also need to worry about the rest. No, I am not saying that all of us should worry about it. But some of us can: Making tutorials that are Easy to understand, showing the Process, de-mystifying it. It cannot hurt to de-mystify the process of editing for those not in the know. The way I see it, there will be need for companies that offer solutions for vlogging, also in different countries like Norway or Belgium og Australia. This group includes some of the people at the very front of the wave, and I think we should not all be elitist and worry only about those who want to spend hours of frustration going through...

Great remarks by Michael, and I agree about the two conversations. > I agree with Jay and Peter-- some people just don't want to do it, so > there is no need to force anyone to. Just as some people don't like > blogging, or watching TV, or reading. Everyone has different > interests. Of course I agree with Jay and Peter on this too. :) We all have different interests, and I have no interest in pushing videologging down someone's throat. But by showing examples now and then - like Shannon's latest post which really expanded my view of what is possible within a short vlog entry just like Ryanne's super8opera vlog entry opened my eyes to vlogging in general back then - I think a lot of people sooner or later will figure out what this is all about, and services like me-tv.com will find its place. A place to "show vlog entries" without being concerned about creating yourself. We also have to remember that you dont need to create in order to watch. There is no upload/download rate requirements here :) > For those who don't like standards or being put into a box-- this > would not squash your creativity, but simply be a place to go to look > for the latest news about videoblogging.

vlogging IS the future. no doubt. it will come in all Kinds of colours and textures. There will always be "The Dylan Verdi Channel" that has new content once or twice a week, or The Caryl and Steve Show, or DLTQ.vlog, or whatever. It will all mingle and mix and we will have a lot of fun. Amidst all this there will be someone actually earning money on what they are doing. That's great! I don't mind Ryanne or someone else who has talent actually getting paid for what they do. And if they lose their head and start acting phony, the viewers will just move on. me-tv, antnottv, ourmedia, vimeo, all that... these may not be Lasting solutions, but the people behind them, working on them, are helping the evolution of online visual entertainment/infotainment, and I am so so sad that i cannot afford getting on that flight to new york to attend vloggercon :( oh well :) Raymond On Wed, 5 Jan 2005 20:20:48 -0500, Jay dedman <jay.dedman@...> wrote: > Jeff Jarvis of buzzmachine says producing a professional-looking > TV-like program would cost little and that advertisers would jump at > the chance to run targeted ads to specific interest groups.

Ian, You are the future. You and Dylan and the others. Well, so are we older peeps, but it takes guys like you to take this further, for the future. My girlfriend will also start videoblogging soon. She is living in Copenhagen and Very much into visual arts. She is 16 (yes, i am 26 and have a 16-year old girlfriend. Someone frigging sue me.) and I am trying to get her hooked up on some sites that can inspire her, get her into gear, start producing more stuff. Inspired by my own meagre vlog attempts (I know I suck at it), Dylan, Ryan and Shannon (I tipped her about Shannon's nails-thunder piece and she was stunned), she now wants to vlog too. She just needs a new camera, and will probably get one next week. She is thinking about getting one like mine (http://www.dcviews.com/_olympus/c750.htm), but I am hesitating about suggesting that. The 10x optical zoom of the camera is Great, but the video QT .mov is not too great imo. I once Somehow saw the Sharper (?) camera/videocamera hybrid that Jakob from vimeo is using - but i cannot remember what camera it was and I cannot retrack the link from the vimeo site. Jakob, what camera was it? And do you recommend it? Anyway, if someone have suggestions about what kind of camera my gf could use (dont think high-end) I would very much appreciate it :) Again,...

left vs. right is old. OLD. we within the norwegian liberal party (in denmark our sister party is Radikale Venstre - not Venstre :P) define the interesting political spectrum as conservative vs. radical. Those who just want to stick with how things are today vs. those who are always seeking new solutions - and who like to let arguments meet in a Discussion. Like in "let the best argument win" not "let the argument being repeated the most times untill people like zombies go yees.yees.ameen." A huuge chunk of the environmental movement is STUCK in the left and the 70s and the anti-atomic-reactors and anti-meat-production and anti-capitalism or whatever. That is helping to marginalize the environmentalist movement and it drives me Crazy. I am very much concerned about environmental issues but I am not anti-globalism or anti-trade or whatever. So, with my vlogs I will move towards showing "the purple" and just letting the arguments meet in a common arena. This will all materialize with time as I get more confident with the medium. raymond [View]
