U.S. STATE DEPT ON EMERGING MEDIA

Statedept_vlog

The U.S. Department of State produces an electronic journal called eJournalUSA. Their March 2006 issue is called Media Emerging and introduces most every aspect of bottom-up media. Dan Gillmor has an article about blogging. And what of videoblogs, you say? Check out the popup feature, Videoblogs Online:

Online personal videos—call them videoblogs, vlogs, podcasts, or anything else—are an increasing presence on the World Wide Web. Minnesota Stories, http://mnstories.com, offers a platform for people from Minnesota to post their own chronicles of life in their northern midwestern state. The example shown here, "Family," was created by filmmaker Michael McIntee in honor of the 2005 Thanksgiving holiday.

Pretty freakin' cool eh? Or surreal, at least. The bottom of the page says The opinions expressed in this video do not necessarily reflect the views or policies of the U.S. government. I guess that means the U.S. government doesn't officially endorse my State of the Union Reaction video.

Thanks Kent Bye for letting me know!
