Videoblogging is the new steamboat

Over at Guide to Ease, Peter Van Dijck takes a look at the state of videoblogging in: Videoblogging and the co-construction of users and technology.
The videoblogging challenge is both technical and social. Not separately technical and social, the two are intimately connected. You cannot develop the technology without developing the community.

... Empowering people. Simple technology. No high production values. Back and forth community video. Moments and conversations. Getting to know each other.

... Clearly, we’re still figuring out the language of videoblogging. This is a time of experimenting, of pioneers.
Peter goes on to list the pioneers of videoblogging. I got a kick out of who he has chosen as videoblogging's posterboy. ;-)
