video blogging as booster for technological progress

26.02.2005 - 18:23 / filled under default

I just commented on Scoble's Blog where he asked "Is videologging the next big hype storm?".

It has it's place, defenetly, and surely will take off. But as thrilled as I am with podcasting, I am not with videos - they don't kick in with me. But with many others.

But, and this is the part where I do like vlogging: It will accelerate the progress of technology. Look where we have been with Music and Players and where we are now with Podcast. The many ventures out there don't spring off new music deals, but clever podcasts.
I think it will take longer than with podcasting, because

  • the charme of podcasting is delivery to a mobile player - not much of affordable mobile players out there and

  • the equipment needed for recording is much more expensive than just a headset and

  • it will be much more complicated to make professional video than audio

  • because there is another (visual) angle involved.

Nonetheless it is an interesting development and I am sure they will be enough people out there who can produce quality video - just take a look on what good photos you can see at Flickr and how some of the Podcasts really have quality both in production and content.

The days of centralized media are not over yet, but it won't take long until new markets emerge to deal with all those content everywhere.

  1. I agree, as interesting is video blogging is, the biggest problem is the time commitment to watch. With podcasting it can be done anywhere, so I listen to podcasts while I'm doing other thing such as working, driving to work, shopping etc. To watch a video I have to devote all my attention to the video and nothing else. Can't really watch video while driving into work.
