Re: [videoblogging] RocketBoomSucks

I checked out the rocketboom site and watched a couple of the videos, and thought they were ok, but there was nothing there to make me want to come back each day as the news was very similar to what I get via the maillists/newsfeeds I scan through anyway. I guess I prefer the more personalised or art-based sites. atm I'm still exploring some of the sites people have been mentioning on this list as I've been offline for a few weeks. I like to see the different techniques people use and how they express their creativity. I've taken a few short videos but haven't had a chance to edit/upload, so I shouldn't really comment until I've tried it myself I suppose. when you say you're going to do it full time do you mean to make a living out of it - is that a viable option atm? or do you mean you're comitted to making the shows each day rain or shine. and are you hoping to create a community site with repeat visitors and people who become part of the project or, are you happy for it to be a project you upload and go for the random visitors who not necessarily come back (or perhaps a bit of both?). great enthusiasm though, good luck with the project :) cheers Kath [View]

what about if you added a short message/still image/closed caption at the end of your video with something like, I'd love to hear your comments or contact me at... this way people viewing via an rss feed instead of directly from your site would also get it. & make the email they use be one that auto-posts to your site.

yeah Steve's points are good. I've been doing netradio for a while and the station has an irc chat channel, website with forums and it used to have a shoutbox on the homepage. we found if you mentioned these things during the show, people would drop in to say hi more often and usually within a couple of minutes (we mentioned it once, then came back to it so they had time to write the url or open s/w etc similar to the 'ok get your pens ready' comments on tv/radio). it was/is part of the community building aspect of the shows and station. of course we also had people drop in on their own, but sometimes people need a gentle reminder that it is easy for them to say hi or provide feedback, otherwise they're probably in the traditional media mindset. also, people on the net are often multitasking - reading emails, watching video, listening to music, downloading, reading articles, chatting in IM software etc. if you make it easy for them there's more chance they'll comment. feedback was important for my show as I featured local artists and they always liked hearing what people had thought.

I think you just need a CMS website using a system such as drupal (drupal.org) or plone (plone.org). they have collaborative aspects with automatic posting or via approval by admins or the community. and/or add a bulletin board in for people to reply back - or comments feature. any of them should be able to post video as in a videoblog. drupal is improving it's access rights for different node categories, plone probably handles this a bit better atm. (eg group1 has access to party docs, group2 & guests can see public info only). you can post attachments such as images or video easily. some systems you can email posts in, (drupal does this) though I haven't tried emailing from a videophone (I don't have one yet!) good luck Kath On Sun, 26 Dec 2004 11:06:39 -0000, Raymond M.

nice work Raymond. re the political and activism sites and video, I guess you're aware of the work the beyondtv people are doing.. http://www.beyondtv.org - it's been around for a while, and they show some of their videos at conferences or use grass roots distibution (internet + sending dvds out or putting them in record stores). sounds like something you might be into? also, I guess you're already aware of indymedia.org sites for each region/city - they do great work also. Kath I posted this on the site comments, but thought others might be interested, video for activism has been around for a while - not sure they would call themselves videobloggers though..but as long as the messages get themselves out there who cares what the labels are On Sat, 25 Dec 2004 23:22:01 -0500, Jay dedman <jay.dedman@...> wrote: > hey-- > > Meet Raymond from Norway. > he's posted a bunch of videos the past couple days...but here he is, > flesh and blood. > http://dltq.blogs.com/dltq/2004/12/today_iii_moi_1.html > > watching him blows me away. > Peter and I talk about how videoblogging and me-tv are just these > bland, flexible tools. > But listen to Raymond's ideas....look into his face. > Its individuals like him who will take these simple tools and really > make sense of them. > > Jay > > > Yahoo!

(resending due to bouncing email address.. apologies if it comes through more than once) I'm interested also. have been travelling a bit for work and seeing some different cultures, it'd be good to see what the locals pov is on their daily living. it's different to what a visitor sees. how would you choose the people to make the videoblogs? or do you already know people (like the Nepalise fellow). also, I'm interested in the social aspects eg, once I was walking around some backstreets in bangalore and the houses were pretty small and the people looked fairly poor but seemed quite happy and they were all out and about chatting with other people in their community (from what I could tell as an outsider). I felt bad taking photos and video as I thought my camera (which was only about $300AU, so not terribly flash) was probably worth quite a few months wages of the people here, so I put it away. do you think giving people cameras will change their roles in their society? and is this a good thing or bad?
