okay, this is good input on a videoblogging tool. we spend a lot of time discussing how videos will be seen, i think we forget to ask the big question: who's going to make all these videos? and how? So Adrian, you say all we need is IMOVIE with an hack that posts to your blog. So mix Imovie and Ecto. I'm in. But how about all the people on PC's? the next question is: who can make this Imovie hack? Ive been asking around and no one seems to know. does anyone know of a dedicated programmer who would be interested in a project like this? is money the issue..if so, how much money? once a simple tool is created, more people could videoblog. we need content. i dont want NBC and MTV making all the video for the net too. adding video to blogs is great becasue the format is already there. a daily journal of experience. funny serious weird. we just got to give people the tools to do it.
