We're talking about genres and we're defining the genre right now through our practice. I'd suggest the definition will include something about the personal, but following Steve's comment about videoblog on tv, there presumably will be something about a videoblog that makes it a videoblog rather than a blog, or video. That's not a personal definition, at best it is a socially defined one. > > To me, overly strict definitions are antithetical to this whole > process. of course, but hard questions and responses like yours help a lot :-) > > Are there boundaries that separate what is a vidblog and what isn't? > > Probably. yep, see above. > > But I'm not too eager to begin laying down anything approaching rules. > well, we could call them something else, but just as there are things that define a blog and separate a blog from a diary or a journal, it will be the same here. (btw, i'm not looking for an argument, more puckish than pugulist.) cheers Adrian Miles ................................................................. hypertext.rmit || hypertext.rmit.edu.au/adrian interactive networked video || hypertext.rmit.edu.au/vog research blog || hypertext.rmit.edu.au/vog/vlog/
