Hi, folks. I also feel this disconnectedness. I am in an area that has few
vloggers. Boston is a little too far away to be able to connect for the Meet the
Vloggers things and other get-togethers very often. New York, four hours away,
is really the next closer place with a mass of folks who do this. To me, seeing
the videos is great and having the online community is wonderful, but I like to
meet people face to face and hear the stories they don't vlog. I think we all do
a bit of self-editing when we turn on the camera. I want to know the people.

Jan's Road Node was great. It was good to have a conversation in the very
tangible "meat space" rather than in cyber space. It helped me feel a little
more connected.

I am the type of person who has a hunger for something, finds it and immerses
himself like a dog rolling in his own spoor, then all of a sudden is through
with it and finds something new. So one day I will likely be done with
videoblogging and will go on to some other creative endeavor - maybe soap
carving or woodworking, which to me will likely end up as hand carving.

Anyway, I am not at the low point yet. I don't really get that type of contniuum
of experience. it's more digital to me. Either it's on or it's off. I'm like
that with everything - art, jobs, even food. I went through a phase of eating
almost nothing but Indian food. I learned how to cook it, what I liked, etc.,
then one day decided not to have any more. For about a year I was on to other
things - beans, nachos, Thai, polenta - all with extremes.

I'm weird like that.
