Hey felicia-- these are good questions. First, i like the idea of recording daily tasks. great idea. becasue its about people. lets get Jason doing it. about formats for videoblogs. we discussed this back in the summer...but its appropriate to bring it back up. i think our group seemed to shy away from TV-like formats. everyone started doing kind of experimental personal storytelling. however, how do you gather an audience? you have a predictable format.' you choose a topic and produce it regualrly. like mica could do a videobog each week on how to prepare one of her crazy delicious organic meals. at BloggerCon(im by the Pacific Ocean as we speak), i realized how podcasts have exploded becasue each blogger picks a themem and does a "show" on that theme. movie reviews, sextalk, gaming, new music...etc. they copy radio...and people get it. like andreas will say, its nothing new. but its good to hear people's voices and i got to say that i enjoy them. so what my point? i bet videoblogging would benefit from regular, formatted "shows". but i bet people in this group will bristle to this idea. and I like that my videoblog is kind of all over then place. as more poeple join, and tools become easier, some poeple will probbaly do just this and probably get pretty popular.
