Hi, my name is Andrew Baron and I have been waiting far too long for
this day. I have been involved heavily with weblogs over the last
couple of years and have also always created artisticly with music and
video on computers (esp on the hardware end). Over the last six
months, I have been setting up my life and my game plan to videoblog
full time and that time has just begun.

With the incredible and unrelenting support of my coconspirators,
Amanda Congdon and Josusa Kinberg, on monday the three of us will
begin our regular format of posting video three minutes a day, every
morning at 8am, five days a week from there on out. The primary focus
is on presenting local nyc culture along with commentary and pointed
information on internet culture. In other words, a weblog in video
format.

You can see what we have put together so far and get a very good sense
of the format with videos from the last two weeks (quicktime 6 mpg4
compression required at the moment (hope to have flash as default and
other formats embedded this weekend)). It would be great to get your
comments and opinions to consider before monday.

I have already met a few of you (thanks to Kenyatta in a big way for
his support and also thanks to Webjay I'm going with flash (best
suggestion i have heard ever)) and look forward to getting involved in
the discussions and creative forces. Our production may seem too much
like tv for you, though I have not had a tv in over ten years and our
emphasis is on entertaining, creative content, where the sky is the
limit. A fortunate locale here in new york city is great too. The
production seems to be getting better with time. The greatest
challenge and the most fun for me personally is creating something out
of nothing.

Cheers,
Andrew
