i had forgotten about this one, but my brother just IMed me an article and it jogged my memory. al gore’s current tv is all about quick video shorts. in fact, from their vision statement:
So, we’re creating a network in short form. Whenever you tune in to Current, you’ll see something amusing, inspiring or interesting. And then, three minutes later, you’ll see something new. It’ll be a video iPod stocked with a stream of short segments and set to shuffle.
al gore is on the board of directors of apple. well there’s one major source of content. viewed as such, current tv, with its emphasis on educating people how to produce their own video and then get it out on the internet is a way of jumpstarting vlogging to fuel the sales of video ipods.
