Is there a definition of 'what a videoblog is' that we all or mostly agree on? [View]

Right now though, I feel the less we define the better. We're still figuring out what it really is, and defining something limits it... But go ahead if you feel like it! Peter [View]

> Is there a definition of 'what a videoblog is' that we all or mostly > agree on? For the article I'm still thinking about I wrote a small definition. It's very loose at the moment. What is Videoblogging The videoblog is a subset of the more typical blog or weblog. Weblogs started out as a form of personal website. They consist of frequently updated posts arranged in reverse chronological order. Each post can stand alone. Usually the reader can add comments to each post. For a more thorough explanation on weblogs see: XXX [this is where I'm supposed to add a reference]. A videoblog is simply put a weblog where the focus for the post is on a video segment. The written text exist mainly to provide a context for the video. Unlike the traditional weblog where the written text exist mainly to provide context and/or context for the links. Other weblog sub-genres exist for other types of expression: Photoblogs for photos and audioblogs for pure audio. The blog structure is not only being used for personal websites anymore. Both corporations and political candidates are using the blog structure to show that their websites are dynamic and frequently updated. I will only focus on personal websites in this document. The reason is that with corporations, organizations and political candidates the blog is a part of a larger market communication and organizational structure. Therefore it is more complex than a...

To me, the word 'blog' generally refers to chronological postings, oftentimes shorter than a journal entry or essay. We tossed this idea around over at audioblog.com, and some audioblogs have a short lifespan like some weblog entries. (Import a few hundred weblog entries and see how many are still relevant vs. timeless). Video has a high overhead to it. Just the nature of capturing it and storing it puts the biggest hurdle out there. Audio does to a certain degree, but a clean cut short form, and VERY linear approach is what would put the 'blog' in 'videoblog'... I'm someone who produces longer form video and audio and I don't even think my entries in the Videoblog Week project would match what a videoblog would be (in my mind). Then the questions are, (and rhetorical at that) what type of linear video would be blogged, and would that linear video be of interest to our 'audiences'. Or should we just capture and post and see what happens? [View]

> Is there a definition of 'what a videoblog is' that we all or mostly > agree on? Right now, a videoblog is just a need to share information, to connect. It's also being done by people who know it's never been done. a challenge. one we're up to. I believe that videoblogging is similar to the beginning of photography. A small group of serious amateurs concocted the chemistry needed to make photographs happen. It was very very clunky and needed a lot of equipment and free time. But it spread through Europe and into America. People took mainly photos of themselves, their surroundings. Portraits were a huge business. only professionals could really afford camera equipment. Companies sent photographers all over the globe to take pictures of exotic lands. Most of humanity had never seen these places before...ever. Then, a guy name George Eastman in Rochester NY developed a photographic process that was dummy proof so everyone could take pictures. and everyone did. it was cheap. people took photos of their families. artists took different kind of photos. business blew up with photo advertising. now is videoblogging exactly like this? no. but it's starting out with dedicated enthusiasts with tools and time. no money involved. now they have to find a way streamline the process. make the tool, develop a community who gets it, and see what happens. Let people play. Videobloggers will be: college kids will use it for... [View]

And this has never happened to humanity...ever. since videobogging week, I've been thinking 'videoblog' a lot. i bought a pair of shoes this weekend and thought that the salesman would have been great to get on my video blog. I was thinking about the difference of what that videoblog post would have been compared to my standard text based post. text = boring! now that i've been video blogging for a week, there seems to be no turning back.
