Great article: Videoblogging Comes Of Age on techPresident:
Using his Samsung Galaxy S2 cell phone, a 4G network, a free Ustream account, and Twitter and Facebook to alert viewers to new broadcasts, the 25-year-old Pool is demonstrating what could be the future of broadcast, networked citizen journalism, where interaction with viewers is real-time, and where anything can happen.There's also a link to a Vloggercon 2005 post, by Micah L. Sifry, as a bonus. Vloggercon 2005 was the first gathering of videobloggers :-)
To long-time video-blogging pioneers, Pool’s livestreams from the Occupy Wall Street protests in Manhattan prove that the long-held promise of video-blogging has come of age.
I'm spending Saturday morning at Vloggercon 2005--the first ever face-to-face gathering of videobloggers--in a packed conference room at NYU. There are over 50 people here, including two women from Italy, a guy from Norway and one from Chile, all who came to NY just for this event. There's a sense here of being part of the birth of a new medium, one that has all kinds of interesting potential.Thanks Sarah Lai Stirland.

My book, Get Seen, teaches you how to live stream and interviews a bunch of successful videobloggers. Also has a little history in it.
