I agree with this.
In fact I've posted a very elegant WordPress FLV plugin here several times.
I think that is a great option for videobloggers. But Flash is not the be all and end all. Other format options for download/syndication are very important.

and you can use a flash wrapper/player which can provide some interactivity being discussed here.  these are free or cheap. just need a server to upload it to so it can be used on the web.  you dont have to buy or use expensive Flash MX 2004 Professional. 

the important point, to reiterate here.... is NOT to ONLY use flash. But DONT avoid it when you can feasibly incorporate it into your projects.  DO provide mp4 etc...

balance.... experiment.... dont be fooled by partial truths which can end up limiting your creativity and use of available technologies.

This is fine, but for an independent who wants to post their own video
on the web, dealing with Flash is still for the most part too
expensive and too complicated. Flash MX 2004 Professional is not a
cheap program. Understanding actionscipt is not easy. Understanding
the intricacies of Flash and how to make it work for both playback and
syndication is not easy.

I think Flash is great on the web. But it is not yet easy enough for
an individual, low budget, one-person production unit without relying
on a third party service.
