Netanel Jacobsson

Thanks for the ping! I am on the way to the gym - with my iPod and the latest edition of FIR!


I've been looking into video blogging too Neville, but finding very little info on it also. It's quite frustrating as I wouldn't mind experimenting with it a little.

Guess it shows how young the concept is.


Neville> thanks for the link, and the comments. Unfortunataly you are all left in the dark on purpose, until we launch our service early next year. Gabe ahs a pretty good interview of me on xolo.tv (also on my blog http://sepulveda.net), where I give a bit more detail about what we are tryign to achieve.

Indeed, after podcasting, I should get you to start videoblogging, shouldn't I ? :)

And the European rocketboom seems to be MobuzzTV.com from Madrid, Spain, led by Anil de Mello.

In termms of videohosting services, the list is impressive, including blip.tv, vimeo.com, myveo.com, revver.com, grouper.com, etc. I've counted more than 20. Revver's got backing from Bessemer Ventures & S. Jurvetson.

Stephen> the concept is not new, the regular shows are about a year old on average, and the tools and services online about 6-8 months.

Steve Hall

So that we're all clear on who really did this work, the site was created and implemented by Margeotes Fertitta Powell and The Barbarian Group. Hyper Happen's only involvement was to promote the thing.

When promoting work, it's nice to give proper credit rather than "borrow" publicity for one's own glory.


Steve, I see you posted the same comment on Net's blog. I've read Net's reply to you where it's pretty clear neither he nor anyone else is trying to "borrow" anyone's glory.


Thanks, Rodrigo. So vpod.tv remains under a cloak. Makes it seem all the more intriguing! Sitting by my email looking for a reply to my application to test...


Nev, Thanks for the link. I realise what netanial is saying by it's hard to find out ways to get started. I'm am currently working on a complete revise of the xolo.tv website that will be launching on January 1st. It will have links to all the main video podcast directories, services, tools, and include tips, a daily blog, weekly vlog, interviews, and more. We will also be working with the NODE 101 group to teach video podcasting, vlogging and podcasting in the Netherlands to start, and the rest if europe showrtly afterwards. I hope that helps.


Very interesting developments, Gabe. So checking in on Jan 1 ;)

Netanel Jacobsson

Nev, thank you for your supporting comments. I believe that 2006 will be the year of Video Podcasting. Gabe, will also check in on Jan 1 ;).
