glad Mica (http://publicaddress.typepad.com/hello/) sent you over. I have a Mac, but im bet half the people on this list have PC's. someone will explain their process. Andreas(www.solitude.dk) said he was going to write up a HOW-TO-VIDEOBLOG for PC's. it's good for us to see how the process of vdieoblogging is difficult for new people. it is easy once you get it down with the different applications you got to use. some of us are working on getting the act of videoblogging streamlined so anyone could do it. basically you got to: 1. record the video 2. edit(if you want to) 3. compress/optimize the video to web size(under 5MB) 4, then upload and post to your blog so who has a PC and can help Craige do his first videoblog?
