Videoblogging meeting the blogging argument from 2003

June 26, 2006 — 1 Comment

Scoble writes about the discussion at BloggerCon between those video blogging for love and those looking for a larger audience (and therefore advertising and money). He talks about it in terms of production values, but I think given the range of tools available to video bloggers these days that the whole “production values” argument is really superfluous, and the real motive behind this debate is the old money/ advertising equation again, which for memory was very similar to debates at previous BloggerCons circa 2003-2004 in relation to blogging in general when advertising first appear on blogs, and blogs started going professional. I’ve not had a chance to listen to the podcast yet (but I intend to) but given the crowds to Dave Winer’s BloggerCons usually include the same group of people (at the core anyway) I’m betting its the same people arguing against the dosh in video blogging in the same way they argued against money in blogging back then….and of course, we know who in the end one that debate :-)…but as they say, all that is old is new again.
