Push the limits of Content and Delivery

Yes I am with Chris... We really need to push the boundaries of the media, both the type of content and the way it is distributed, and if people on this list are serious about changing mainstream media, we need to work on accessability and outreach as well. Why don't more people get involved? Lack of understanding of what a blog is, and distance from the computer culture that many of us vbloggers take for granted. Many people out there don't find problems with TV/mainstream video media. In Oakland, CA, not enough people have access to computers, much less access to a decent education. Which reminds me, are there any SF bay Area people who would like to talk to me about setting up a video blogging program for high school students at oakland tech? Also, I wanted to add to that RocketBoom Troll post: I don't care so much about the editing/stylistic aspects of what people post. I do care about my own access to content, and I care about giving people the means to push the content envelope. For every RocketBoom, there is another blog that looks like nothing you've ever seen. The main advantage to "blogging" versus other philosophies of media production is that the ease and spontaneity of distribution allows for every stylistic niche to potentially be filled. Ok, I am still working on my blog, I just turned on my comments, and this weekend: trackback, and an RSS aggregator so I can link to everybody else's feeds!
