A self-reflective look at Video blogging told by a french sock….

I include this mostly for the comic aspect.  But it does ask a relevant question about media broadcast that increasingly is a part of our cultural wallpaper.  And the writers are on strike…so why not watch YouTube instead of stale re-runs.  [or your could create your own content….]   Is video blogging always navel gazing?  Does navel gazing have a value?  Does it ever become too much?  Is there value to video blogging beyond navel gazing?  Thoughts?  Perhaps this is the cool thing about new media.  YouTube + video (actually optional w/ a macbook) + Macbook + Creativity + Message/Idea + Socks + Funny = Cool for Free.  I think the folks that made this seized on a unique issue, but there seem to be plenty of ideas (it just seems hard to find which one will get this much exposure)…

    That sock puppet got over 320,000 views for a 3 minute clip. That’s way more than watch WKRN news in a day.

    Wow! I didn’t notice that. Puts things in perspective. Thanks for stopping by Christian. Hope the re-design at Nashville is Talking is going well.
