BLOGS AS JOURNALISM

In an effort to give folks an idea of what Blogumentary is about, I'm adding two new segments. The first is "Blogs as Journalism," which briefly traverses the impact of blogs upon Trent Lott and the Iraq War. This version contains interview clips with Rebecca Blood and Jeff Jarvis, and an extended section with BBC journalist Stuart Hughes taped at an O'Reilly Emerging Technology Conference by Lisa Rein.

Notes: This subject alone could be a feature documentary. This segment is feeling rather dated and I will be updating it. I need to add a bit about Salam Pax and possibly Christopher Allbritton. I have an interview with Dan Gillmor that should make a cameo. Note that the audio here is "scratch audio" - i.e. - "my crappy temporary voiceover." The Stuart Hughes audio is particularly bad, and I'll likely cut that segment down, or else interview him over the phone to get better audio.

Salam Pax visited my home town at the end of May. If I was still living there, I would have taken a video camera to the library and shot him.

Or rather, you know, "filmed" him.

Heh.

Well keep your eyes peeled, and your "camera" loaded.

Some good news from Stuart Hughes - he's going to videotape himself answering my questions in his lovely garden, so not only will I have better audio for his segment, but real live video. Huzzah!

This will be my third long-distance, email, interviewee-taped interview in one week. Wow. Things are really hopping in Blogumentary-land. Now if only someone will hand over some sorely-needed funding.

Found you via Stuart Hughes blog. Look forward to hearing his garden audio when you get it together. I haven't been through all your recordings yet, but I will do. Much Respect for making the effort to do this. Without funding, I know, it can be a bitch.

On another note, there's some intresting British video blogging going on at http://www.talkaoke.com/
