7 7 What is vlogging? Vlogging is kinda not video podcasting Does not require RSS More conversational Can use other spaces? (Like YouTube and Blip?) Post centric, not channel centric Like photo blogging… We consult the oracle… Wikipedia!

8 8 It’s Post vs. Enclosure vs. Stream Video on a blog Vlogs are more conversational Incorporate commenting Can be less pressure to think of vlogs as a channel (not always) Tend to be less corporate, more storytelling! Click image to link.

9 9 Podcasting and RSS enclosures Podcasting RSS feed “enclosures” attachments containing audio or video items, (such as news items, MP3 music files or audio commentary) Can download from RSS feed and add them to iTunes or play on Windows Media Player This dynamic content can be replayed on many devices including iPods.

10 10 Vlog vs Video Podcast Video Podcast May mix video, audio and more in RSS stream. Feed based RSS 2.0 with enclosures Time stamps loosely related to post times Commenting not part of spec.

13 13 Streaming is so last century! It is like TV before Tivo Why would you want to make your audience suffer? Weakest link defines experience You can’t lock down a stream (Repeat after me: Analog Hole!) Bandwidth issues, network centric, IMHO - YUCK! Streaming is like creamed carrots, YUCK!
