Re: Blu Ray, misogyny, Cheryl, etc.
I have to say that I don't see any gender issues at play here at all. Just because someone disagrees with you are has an issue with what you say does not mean they are mysoginistic due to the fact that you happen to be female. I've been watching this ridiculous conversation and shaking my head. If you would like a vlogging group for women, by all means, make one. But let's not continue this divisive diatribe.

Re: Vloggercon II — Toronto Meet
(pending funding, of course) i should be in montreal sept 22-24th for the art conference. after that, i could head over to toronto and stay for a week or two. i've been meaning to go back for a visit anyway and this would be an excellent excuse! i may even be able to have the toronto portion funded as well via Canada Council. fingers crossed.

Vlogs As Art
Hi All, I am interested in the unique qualities of vlogs that set them apart from or add to the dialogue of video. Do you see a difference between vlogs and other video productions? How would you describe those differences? Is it in the vlogs themselves, the mode of production/distribution, or is it a bit of both? If a televison show is offered exclusively online, is it a vlog? I'm curious as to how many here view their vlogs as art. Do you consider what you do art? would you be interested in showing your vlogs in an art context? I'm not much for tech talk but I do love to talk about the theoretical implications of vlogging. Any thoughts? Anne http://8bitme.blogspot.com http://nopractice.blogspot.com [View]
Vlogs As TV
thanks to everyone for your responses so far on the topic of vlogs as art. some interesting thoughts on the matter are being raised. vlogging as art is a subject i have been hashing around for a while on my blog and in discussions with video artists. a good point was raised about what happens when the vlog post is viewed in a different context, ie: a show at an art gallery. does the video need to be seen in the context for which it was made in order for it to maintain it's "vloginess"? i think, perhaps, it does. i,too, enjoy the intimate size of the viewing window and the one-to-one feeling vlogs inspire. while many people may be viewing the same vlogs as i am, i am able to have a direct, one-to-one relationship with the video maker. i am able to respond to the video with a video of my own and link to the original piece. i am part of a dialogue. i retain my individuality in a way that a television audience does not. i wonder, as the structure of video on the internet continues to expand, if the tv model will become more prevelant and makers will scrap the blog model and use feedreaders and directories as a sole means of distributing their video. is it still a vlog if there is no link to a "home"? will the nature of vlogging change from...

Re: 150 – Group Tipping Point?
sounds like you're talking about a forum, stephanie. that's a really good idea. yahoo groups are great for small groups but not so great for large ones. a forum structure would be very beneficial. also, every forum i've ever been on always has a social thread for off topic fun. it's important here to keep a lid on the socializing because of the structure of yahoo groups but i think it's important to be able to relax and get to know one another socially as well. anne http://8bitme.blogspot.com http://nopractice.blogspot.com --- In firstname.lastname@example.org, Stephanie Bryant <mortaine@g...> wrote: > Chris, dude.... everyone on this list is a narcissist, to one degree or another. > > Anyway, some possible sub-groups that could evolve out of this one: > > 1) Vlogger-newbies: Make sure a core handful of "old-timers" spanning > a broad range of technical expertise stay in the group and keep their > eyes open to questions and help people out. > > 2) Vlogger-politics: Vlogs in the political sphere > > 3) Vlogger-press: Vlogs in their relationships with press/mass-media > (ex: Cheryl's Hollywood insider types of vlogs, but also the Vlogging > Press Kit) > > 4) Vlogger-legal: Legal issues/wrangles relating to vlogging (ex: a > site reusing or distributing your work without permission or site > hits, CC discussion, litigation, legislation, etc.) > > 5) Vlogger-tech: Talking about changes in technology, bleeding edge, etc. > > 6) Vlogger-compose: Discussion of...

hello australian artist. i'm an artist in canada who has a blog. not sure what kind of blogs you're looking for specifically...blog as art, blog about the artist and their work, blog about art reviews of gallery shows? as an artist interested in forms of communication, i consider my blog to be an art project containing various permutations of the concept of "art blog". there are lots of art blogs out there and the list is constantly expanding. most of them are focused primarily on more traditional art practice (physical gallery spaces with drawing, painting, photography, installation, etc). you can check out the blogrolls on these sites to find something more to your taste. http://www.digitalmediatree.com/sallymckay/ http://zekesgallery.blogspot.com/ of course, there's always bre's site I Make Things as well http://www.imakethings.com/ here in canada, there will be an art blogging discussion taking place sept 22-24 at artivistic - an art conference in montreal. art bloggers from around north america will be in attendance. i'm hoping to be there with the specific agenda of promoting videoblogging as an alternative to gallery located single channel video.

Re: books + theory reading
i think that the best way to encourage others to create content above and beyond the personal anecdote (if that's what they want to do), is through example. there is absolutely no need to dismiss the videos of others on this forum. doing so is counterproductive. while i'm sure that chris didn't mean it to be, the language used to express his opinions was needlessly inflamatory. vlogging is a new genre. just like art video, when it first arrived on the scene, experimentation with various methods/subject matters is not only inevitable, it's also necessary. many of the first art videos created were navel gazing exercises that took the new ability to create long takes to the extreme (andy warhol's sleeping videos come to mind). alot is made of the signal to noise ratio. the fear is that, if there are too many "boring" videos, the video blogging project will be imperiled. nonsense. link to what you love and the rest takes care of itself. curate a site of videos that you find important/interesting. comment on them. link to them. become a vlog critic. write history. --- In firstname.lastname@example.org, Beth Agnew <wellville@r...> wrote: > I think you're fully allowed to express your opinon, Chris.
