I am so excited about the idea of videoblogs being utilized by a deaf community. As a child I had several deaf or hearing impaired friends ...sign language is visual (it is extremely expressive and can be poetic like dance) and there's meaning conveyed in the physicality of this language - just like a verbal one- that cannot be conveyed in text. Its another perfect use for this medium. Its one of my ongoing brainstorms to think of possible groups that would put videoblogs to good use- this is one i wouldnt have come up with. Ive been thinking about elderly people who are alone or incarcerated people who could communicate with their families and the educational uses are limitless, kids would take to it instantly. Cant wait to see what people come up with.
