Just to specify because I think Kenyatta's name is a bit misleading. What Kenyatta has made is an RSS aggregator that can display enclosed videos. It's not a "browser" in the sense that Internet Explorer is a browser. It's a "browser" in the sense that Bloglines is a blog-"browser". And that's how it should be. I like the interface of Kenyatta's project a lot. > In short: I had been thinking about this for many months, now that I > see it it clicks immediately. We need this. We need vogbrowsers. > Videoblogbrowsers. Keep up the good work. It's brilliant. I disagree. I need video capabilities in my RSS aggregator, and I need video capabilities in my browser. I already have video capabilities in my browser - it's my RSS aggregator that's lacking right now. Having a specialized "vogbrowser" would only limit how far videoblogs can spread. Why should I need three different browsers to look at the world wide web? No, the "browser" part is working (almost) just fine. I don't want to ever see a message when I'm trying to open a blog entry saying "Sorry, you need a vogbrowser to view this page." An RSS aggregator with video capabilities would be really nice though. That's what Kenyatta is working on (as far as I can tell, not having spoken with the guy. Jump in if I'm wrong), and it's a noble project indeed. - Andreas -- <URL:http://www.solitude.dk/&gt; Commentary on media, communication, culture and technology.
