Vloggers are getting ready…
That’s me with my sisters one year when Nancy received a “Give a Show Projector” for Christmas. It was about as close as we got to being able to put on a media show…and we did for friends and family (and charged admission). Yes…we really were that goofy with the fake expressions of joy and surprise.
Lots of people are getting ready to “give a show” by vlogging right now. If you think podcasting has been hot, just wait to see what happens when tools (iMovie, cameras, blogging) meet a device and an online movie store (rumored video iPod and iTunes-like movie store) and their videos are available via the potentially thousands or hundreds of thousands of “channels” (look at this) and places to distribute and/or find vlogs (mefeedia, Open Media Network, etc).
To give you just two examples of the energy focused in this area, peek at the behind-the-scenes look at the ‘studio’ that media poster child Eric Rice is building, as well as what the former TechTV Screen Savers show guys are doing (the Diggnation podcast while also shooting and posting video). Hmmm….wonder what they know that you don’t. These two will give you a sense of what smart, plugged in people in the Bay Area are anticipating and working toward to ensure they’re getting in front of the curve as vlogging inevitably explodes.
