Here's the article I've been waiting for!

Blogging + Video = Vlogging by Katie Dean

"We're going from being media consumers to media makers. We're learning how to do that," said Chuck Olsen, a documentary filmmaker and video blogger in Minnesota. "There's sort of a whole continuum between (videotaping) grandpa's birthday and filmmaking."

Anyone can "create media and have a distribution outlet for it that bypasses television and mainstream media," Olsen said. "It's like slightly curated cable-access."

[...]

"The technology to capture what's around you is becoming so prevalent," Olsen said. "It's completely clashing with existing laws. I just think we're in this weird growing-pains stage where it has to be worked out."

And although some viewers might find the videos dull as cardboard, Olsen said some vloggers rally 'round the motto, "Mundane is the new punk rock."

I've been wanting so bad to see "Mundane is the new punk rock" in print pixels, and there it is. Katie Dean did a terrific job. The article also quotes fellow vloggy dudes Clint Sharp and Steve Garfield, who suggests Weber should hire The Carol and Steve Show to demonstrate how to grill them burgers up right. Don't forget the Boston baked beans!

funny thing is, i always thought/hoped/dreamed i'd end up in Wired news because of Blogumentary. (one Wired reporter requested a copy - i never heard back.) but hey - if it's videoblogs, i'm just as happy.
