The Long Tail is about to bring us millions of video channels. Already I'm seeing hundreds of new videos put on blogs every week. It's interesting to see what people are doing with their camcorders.

Watch guys like Chuck Olsen. He handed me a DVD at the SXSW conference with his "blogumentary" on it. I watched it for the first time last night. Really great stuff. I can't wait until he finishes it and puts it up for you all to watch.

A full documentary film with dozens of interviews. All done by one guy with a camcorder. Just as good a quality as the main stream media TV stations do. In fact, better quality than they do in almost all the markets except for maybe New York and California.

One guy (or girl, for that matter). With a camcorder. With one viewer. That's how markets change. Long tail style.

I just can't wait to see what happens next.

Woo-hoo! Amen Brother Scoble. I'm tickled by his compliments, but more importantly excited that he's such a proponent of videoblogging. He's keenly aware of the impending media shift. Yes, this could be huge. Let's kick things off with VIDEOBLOGGING WEEK 2005.

I almost don't have the heart to tell Scobleizer that Blogumentary actually is finished. But - I need to make a copyright-friendly version that I can release online, where it can be free and evolve amongst the people.

I also got a chance to direct Scoble to the Better Life Blog, as we had his business blogging advice in mind when we created it.

Special thanks to well-connected gentleman Paul Mooney, who introduced me to Scoble at SXSW. (Happy belated blogiversary!)

Along with David Hudson, Al Franken and a host of others, I was the recipient of a copy of Chuck's Blogumentary back at SXSW last month. I just now finally got around to watching it. My thoughts: The first quarter... [Read More]

My own review of Blogumentary will be coming shortly, Chuck - just as soon as I manage to stop travelling around to all these damn film festivals! I'm anticipating some quality writing time in, oh, about one week or so...
