Steve Jacksons' blog, www.kongisking.net, with photos and video on post production is quite interesting; from Steve Garfields', stevegarfield.blogs.com, interviews of Tony Kahn who is going from podcasting to including videoblogging; Bill Streeter mentions the person who created the "Whats up" commercials being at the Chicago MTV being very interested in vlogging. I think these and other people who worked in traditional media have and will create very interesting and worthwhile work. They are not geneticaly limited to a certain way of producing media. -- Enric > > but is that what we are after? a feel of fabrication with high > production standards and prececicely calculated design, humor, or > marketability?
