Steve Garfield: How It All Began

Online Videos by

Sunny Gault posts her interview with me about how I got started in videoblogging, and the early history of videoblogging. Thanks Sunny...

It's so great to have this, so people can hear the story of how I got started in video and blogging, way before videoblogging.

Now I'm going to have to get those old cable access Steve's Show videos posted to the web... Stay tuned.

David Howell asked some questions about the interview so I posted some clarifications on the Videoblogging list.

Here they are:

On January 1, 2004 I decided to figure out how to put video on a blog and did it. I was unaware of anyone else having ever tried to do it. I'd never seen video on a blog. Adrian Miles was experimenting in 2000 and you'll see his entry on Wikipedia.

In the interview I am just talking about January 1, 2004 and earlier. Lots of people started videoblogs after that date and continue posting video to blogs.

I'm referring to the fact that I personally was able to get FCP, a Mac laptop and GL/2 prior to 1/1/04, and have the technology in house and available to produce video on a blog.

I also started a videopodcast blog to experiment in including video in RSS 2.0 with media enclosures for distribution. So that was in addition to the regular video blog I had.

A videoblog is video on a blog and a video podcast is video delivered over RSS 2.0 with media enclosures.
