Vlogging!

Almost everyone I know is into blogging

and then I came across this interesting article…..

It was inevitable: Bloggers who previously wrote endlessly about everything from politics to tech tips to how to fry an egg on a hot sidewalk can now take their commentary, advice and random experiments to the next level by filming and broadcasting their work, thanks to the latest web trend — video blogging.

Video blogs — also known by their shorter, clunkier name, vlogs — are blogs that primarily feature video shorts instead of text.

“We’re going from being media consumers to media makers. We’re learning how to do that,” said Chuck Olsen, a documentary filmmaker and video blogger in Minnesota. “There’s sort of a whole continuum between (videotaping) grandpa’s birthday and filmmaking.”

Anyone can “create media and have a distribution outlet for it that bypasses television and mainstream media,” Olsen said. “It’s like slightly curated cable-access.”

A comment was made that we need to keep up with the progress of techology (otherwise we would be left too far behind). Do we?

Another observation was made that in a short while, even primary 1 children would need handphones! Would they?
Employers are issuing 3G phones to their staff. In so doing, they can ring and check up where their staff are! Should they?

However we view these, one thing is for sure – this technology and its uses is going to be here to stay. If advances in the past have seemed to be big steps in transforming society, (automobile, radio, television, etc) I believe this era is going to see even greater strides. Being ostriches would not be the right reaction or response. Rather, we should seek to understand to the measure we can. We need to read widely in order to be able to communicate with all ages. Learning doesnt stop because formal education has. Learning is a lifelong process.

So, what about vlogging………….?
