There was one good talk that I went to at VloggerCon that is worth sharing some information about here… The difference between video blogs and other formats.
- Video get decontextualized – once it is out there it roams around
- The display is smaller
- It is bandwidth dependent
- The audience control – they can decide what to watch and when
- The interaction with the audience is more organic
Christine was at the event and counted how many women were there – 26% – relatively high ‘for a tech conference’ I don’t know if it is the venue or the early stage of this industry niche but it feels very ‘alpha’ – you know – my vlog is bigger then your blog, my vlogging tool is better then your vlogging tool.
I am trying to wrap my head around how to do this vlogging thing. They put the ‘advanced imovie and final cut pro’ in the second slot of the day before there was even a basic tutorial. They did have a story telling workshop that looked like it was good but I didn’t make it to that one.
I was craving more room (the venue was very cramped) and open space methodology. I will be back there today wearing my dabbler shirt – thanks Mary. If you are trying to figure out where there is good video on the web – dabble is the place for you. You can be my “friend” there too.
