ARC's 1st Law: As a "progressive" online discussion grows longer, the probability of a nefarious reference to Karl Rove approaches one

The Future of Blogging (?)

Is this the future of blogging?

Here's a quick snapshot of the First 200 Days for Ian Mills, who is video-blogging each day of 2005 at noservicecharge.com

I have to say that this certainly has potential...although, it'd be difficult to have interesting content day after day that didn't seem contrived. IHT is correct that "the mundane" can be cool (see Seinfeld), but only if people can relate to the quirky and mundane parts that you vblog about. And if you have to storyboard a vlog post and its mundane, people will run away screaming - since it's unlikely to be contrived and unable to compete against anything a team "creative-types" come up with after a week of working together, chained to their lattes.

But, perhaps we could transform Another Rovian Conspiracy into a video blog....

Who am I kidding? Karl wouldn't allow us to film and publicize our meetings... After all, there's too much goat blood and Latin to ever "play in Peoria." And besides, the whole point of a conspiracy is to keep things under wraps, which is why it's so difficult to get any of us to express our opinions about the issues of the day.
