Personally, I'm not all that excited about a standard. I enjoy using Flash because I adore the ability to load my vidblogs apart from the running of QuickTime, WMP, or especially that devil, RealPlayer. Plus, I can do things in Flash that I wouldn't have the faintest idea how to do in other programs. And I wouldn't want to draw people into the web of Flash if they're competent in another format. I also think that protmotion of a standard format works counter your desire to make vidblogging broadly accessible to a range of content producers. My camera shoots MPEG1 and comes with a very rudimentary editor. If I didn't have Flash available to me through my occupation, I would be locked out of the vidblogging discussion, trapped by the low level of my tech. No, I think diversity at this point is a bonus - as it lets more people become involved. At least until the point when vidblogging becomes more ubiquitous.
