A very interesting thing about what you're doing is that it's s= o complementary to what others are doing. The P2P hackers are decentralizi= ng distribution. The musiclogging community that I am a part of is decentr= alizing taste. The videoblogging community is decentralizing production. = It's great to see this last leg come into being with the work that you and = other videobloggers are doing. > > For the technic, Lucas Gonze, you made = a great job !

My interest began with the ques= tion of how you could share playlists with friends, which turned out to be = hard. There is a lot you can do with web audio/video, but the knowledge is= scattered and hard to find, so a key project for me was compiling a study = of playlist formats. (That study is now housed at http://gonze.com/playlis= ts/playlist-format-survey.html.) I am now working on a compilation of best= practices about audio/video hypertext. For the moment these are loose not= es posted to my weblog; today's entries are at http://gonze.com/weblog/stor= y/6-25-4. I work within a community of hackers interested in audio/video h= ypertext.

Use of Webjay for videoblogging is in a bootstr= apping phase like this: (1) Video playlisters like Brett Singer (webjay.org= /by/webjaybs) compile playlists using webjay. (2) They get blocked by webj= ay bugs or lack of features. (3) I fix the bugs and implement features.
