Notes on Video Blogging By nature a blog is <sum> open source <sum> colla= borative <sum> dialog <sum> accumulative <sum> contemporary The `author a= s diarist' seems to be the proto-language of the blog. Like the painterly = photo, or the film as `photoplay', or the TV as tiny proscenium theatre, b= logging takes its first steps in the shoes of a preceding technology. And= it is a very appropriate language to start with as blogging shares many c= ommon traits with letter writing / diary keeping =96 it is periodic, its i= s a dialog and unlike say, a phone conversation, it is author-centric(very= much 1st person in its content) and it is a cumulative form of story te= lling. Being a diarist in that way doesn't appeal to me, personally. I'm = more interested in the element of accumulation - a buildup of content to = give relevance to the form =96 that meaning establishes itself over time. = Adding video to this form will allow the medium to truly come into its ow= n and begin establishing its unique language. So, what can a video blog do= or rather, what can I do with a video blog that I cannot do with other me= diums? It attracts me because of this unique combination of traits in a vi= sual medium. It is irrelevant to me if its content is edited or `real' or = `art'. What is... [View]

Hi all- my first post was a intro to my recent thoughts on the blog, its language, and use. My background is in art, I work with photography and video. Currently working for a docu filmmaker. Im obsessed with the ideologies and philosophy of media and communication. I learned to program Basic when I was eight, but I have no contemporary programming skills. My first amazing experience with the web was in 1999. My friend and I drove across US and made daily image/text posts on a website. We didn't call it a blog, we called it Janepage. I'm thrilled to dig into this great discussion However, im swamped today. Still, i wanted to extend an invite to yous in NYC I'll be screening the first episode of my mnn(nyc cable access/jay's work) tonight at Remote Lounge - on Bowery btw 2-3rd sts,7-9pm [View]

Eric's site is looking great! all the tiny movies started going at once and it was like a crazy little party on the screen. the new little video's are really nice not that i dont like seeing you, but i really enjoy seeing WHAT YOU SEE (content) and HOW you see it (form). i also like the idea he has about a game/friendster/weblog experiment im down to try something like that id love to start a videoblog thats like a chainletter or 'exquisite corpse'- im so ready for something more interactive-y Lets! my own daily postings have been going well the idea was that a month of posting daily would be practice and id have a handle on some technique -( i'm still getting there) but i also think looking back on a month of posts will help figure out where im going with content i hightly recoment this excercise it also keeps me from getting to precious with the video - --- In videoblogging@yahoogroups.com, "Eric Rice" <eric@e...> wrote: > I don't normally like to self-post, okay I lied, but did you guys peek at the videos in my TV > area? http://eric.blognews.com/blog/TVVideo > > Starting halfway down the page, I've been a little blog happy lately.

This is something i intend to push - its part of what this medium, by nature, allows for. Ultimately, it is a dialog-exchange-mash-up, whatever you want to call it. FYI - a pioneer in this kind playing is Christian Marclay. Among other things, he is known for taking two records literally smashing them into peices, putting them back together and playing the resulting creation.

http://crule.typeppad.com An independent world is develpoing inside this blog. Perhaps, the videos are little vignettes that tell diffrent parts of one story? perhaps story lines will develop only to split off, go in their own different directions and converge again at various points. perhaps they will converge with images and stories from other videoblogs or copyrighted sources..only time will tell.
