Videoblog week: Day 6

I put up my Day 6 video late last night.

I went to see Fahrenheit 9/11 last night.
I couldnt help but think the obvious:
many of the problems today are caused by lack of information because the
companies that should bring us the stories and pictures are not.
But if putting video on the web was simple and normal, everyone would be a
witness to the world and could just post it in here.
Think the prison photos from Iraq.

As much as I love still images and well-written articles, there's something
about video that brings it all home.

I think it's so strange that my country, the US, has been at war in Iraq for
over a year now….and I really havent seen much of what the place looks
like.
Our TV networks dont show us the people or places. They dont give us a sense
of what it's like to be there. I have no idea what Iraqis are like.
good or bad. there's little information.

so what's the obvious idea:
videoblogging.
