'VLOG' OR 'PODCAST'?

But, despite this increased exposure for digital-video auteurs, one author has resisted the phrase "video podcast," used by Apple and others. Chuck Olsen of Minneapolis, author of the iTunes-listed "Secret Vlog Injection" video show and creator of the collaborative "Minnesota Stories" daily-clip anthology, prefers the terms "video blog" or "vlog."

"Apple is invested in the term 'pod' anything," said Olsen, also known for his "Blogumentary" documentary about Weblogs. "But it doesn't make any sense to call (a vlog) a 'video podcast.' It's like calling television a 'video radiocast.' "

Congrats to you regarding your new job!
Do you drive a maroon-ish Passat with a Kerry/Edwards sticker on it? I almost nailed you coming around the corner of University and Raymond. I never actually saw your face, but I saw the corner of your glasses reflected in your rear-view. For some reason or another, I thought it was you.

Eh.

I think it'd be more like calling TV a "video broadcast"...which it is.

rena: that was me allright!

luke: not really. broadcasting isn't content- or device-specific.
