  • Google video to accept submissions "In the next few days we're actually going to start taking video submissions from people, and we're not quite sure what we're going to get, but we decided we'd try this experiment," said Larry Page.

    Very cool! But it's not easy for a consumer to insert closed-captioning into a video feed, so don't count on your home videos or video blogs being listed in Google's video search service just yet. They could create captioning with voice recognition software, but I don't think they'd do that for free beyond this experimental stage.

  • INdTV renamed Current.tv Think of it as a big video blog that you don't need a computer to watch. Gore said he is aiming to bring interactivity to the TV set.

    Holy shit - did Al Gore just ask us to think of his new TV network as a video blog? I haven't taken much time to explore Current TV but it seems to represent the ideals we were excited about as INdTV digital correspondent applicants. If they can help create a generation of citizen journalists and indie mediamakers, they have my full-blooded support. I hope Current TV and the videoblogging community will find a symbiotic relationship.

  • Check out HKU TV, a new videoblog by some Dutch film students.
