yep. don't call thtat video blogging. call it community access net tv.
or something. but not video blogging. it's a blog. personal,
multivocal, idiosyncratic, did i say personal?

if you want audience, serialisation, and 'shows' go for it, use
syndication. i think using aggregation to achieve this is 1000% more
interesting than centralising which is what the above sort of models.
blogs work because they're decnetralised. why reintroduce old media
structures into a distributed network that works because *all* bits are

this is where the rss/aggregation stuff is critical. imagine we all
made a 60 second bit called "Christmas" and then aggregated that.
that's a show. that's a new sort of show and that is what we ought to
be worrying about
