Incidentally, I thought this was kinda cool. I am one of three final nominees on diarist.net for an award category, Best Use of Multimedia in a Site (I presume in a blog-type site). Link: http://diarist.net/awards/nominees-site.html ... They describe the category as so: Recognizes excellence in use of audio (RealAudio, WAV, MIDI), video (RealVideo, QuickTime, AVI), and multimedia plug-ins (Flash), both in the quality of the specific media used and how well it enhances the overall journal experience. Any format, whether industry-standard or proprietary, is acceptible provided the needed software is freely available. However, the breadth of the overall audience (access to users of older browsers and the equivalent plug-ins) is a factor. I don't think I deserve to win, but I DO think its cool that people are starting to pay attention to multi-media presentation as a part in personal journaling/personal reporting/blogging/whathaveyou. A year ago, I wasn't even aware that other people were vidblogging. Now, with the help of forums like this and the fact that we're doing what we're doing, the web's becoming a much more interesting place (knock on wood). Pax, The Dane http://nowheresville.us
