blogging pioneers at businessweek

BusinessWeek have just run an article on something that is of great interest to me - videoblogging.

I have been following the various ingredients of blogging as well as community, social networks and relationships for some time now (e.g. http://taghop.com and http://taghop.org) - in fact SmartMobs sums up what I believe will thrive across the world. Blogging will be one aspect, but with SO MUCH information out there, there are going to have to be ways of filtering it.

We will see a rise is smaller community focuse sites and specialized tools that will likely rise from syndicated content from these main key sites - combinations of feeds from news sites, flickr, vidyo, meefedia, ourmedia and so on. What would i give to save an hour a day just filtering the RSS feeds i get, never mind those that i may be interested in that i haven't yet discovered!

What's REALLY cool about Video Blogging is that people can show and tell you things that saves you having to dream up what they are seeing - one video blog can save hundreds of lines of text (and time). How To's are so much easier to follow when someone is showing you (in real life AND online)! Sure, they'll not be as professional as bigger media productions, but if it's the thing i really need to know, i don't really care how it's presented!

It's what http://vidyo.org and http://vidyo.tv are looking at. There are many, many opportunities here for collaboration!

Send spam from GMail

Update :: Apparently this feature isn't new and has been around for some time. You need a valid email address as your alternate email address (much like paypal).

Hmm - you can now set your From email address in Google...

Now that should open up a whole new set of rules. SPAM that gets past your rules (surely i'm missing something, having not read a whole loet about it!)

Vidyo Coming...

The past few days have been pretty hectic with having to write up some ideas on a Semantic Web concept i am working on as well as get Vidyo up and ready.

Well, now it is. I will be approaching some people about being invited to join. I will be starting with invitations to try and avoid SPAM hell. So although I can't tell you too much just now, i CAN tell you we're almost there.

NOW, further blogs for Vidyo will be posted HERE
