Using predefined tags, a developer (blogger) can set up his/her site to accept multiple blogs, moblogs, picture and or video blogs etc. It is fairly easy to use from a blogging standpoint with many many features. Also, it is fairly easy to make work within your web design. > > also, last week we were going back and forth about videophones and > videoblogging. > a guy in France shoeds us that they had phones that can do it. > Ryan in CA said its possible here. > Explain the process of capturing, editing, and posting to your blog. > How much does it cost to upload? > example of what it looks like?

Examples of my blogs (sent directly from my phone to my blog) can be found here: http://www.videoblog.tv As far as cost goes, you buy data minutes along with your phone minutes. AT&T has many plans available. Each video is 15 seconds and is about 100KB. The process goes like this: 1) Point phone at action 2) Press record 3) Create message 4) Attach clip 5) Send to specific address (email) That's it! 2.5) press pause for "editing" > > > The aspect that's difficult for me is not technical, but more of a > > philosophical one.
