Push the limits of Content and Delivery

Yes I am with Chris…

We really need to push the boundaries of the media, both the type of
content and the way it is distributed, and if people on this list are
serious about changing mainstream media, we need to work on accessability
and outreach as well.

Why don't more people get involved? Lack of understanding of what a blog
is, and distance from the computer culture that many of us vbloggers take
for granted. Many people out there don't find problems with TV/mainstream
video media. In Oakland, CA, not enough people have access to computers,
much less access to a decent education. Which reminds me, are there any SF
bay Area people who would like to talk to me about setting up a video
blogging program for high school students at oakland tech?

Also, I wanted to add to that RocketBoom Troll post: I don't care so much
about the editing/stylistic aspects of what people post. I do care about
my own access to content, and I care about giving people the means to push
the content envelope. For every RocketBoom, there is another blog that
looks like nothing you've ever seen. The main advantage to "blogging"
versus other philosophies of media production is that the ease and
spontaneity of distribution allows for every stylistic niche to
potentially be filled.

Ok, I am still working on my blog, I just turned on my comments, and this
weekend: trackback, and an RSS aggregator so I can link to everybody
else's feeds!

Good work everyone…
