So some of you may not know Kenyatta. He does http://unmediated.org I met him when he worked at MNN, the TV station where I work now. Really, what he's asking is....do you mind if we try to create a system so more people can watch your videos? Kenaytta is working on a very cool project that will make this happen very easily. The only issue is one that Steve brought up last month. he also found a clever way solution. If people automatically download videos from your blog with an aggregator, they will only get your video. No text post. So Steve asked, "arent they taking the video without the context of the text post?" yes. So that is why making videos self-contained is important. Steve now does his "this is Steve from Stevegarfield.com". Also I add some text at the beginning and end to let people know from which blog the video came from. we already have an RSS feed of the videoblogging group...this will just puts the videos in enclosures so people can watch them on their TV. Andreas...I'll talk to Peter in India and make sure he doesnt mind. you undersatnd what kenyatta needs?
