Yglesias Bros on Vlogging
Matthew and Nick Yglesias discuss the virtues of vlogging. In a painfully awkward video, Nick describes why most bloggers are “painfully awkward” on video and that vlogging has few of the advantages of text blogging (aka, “blogging”).
He’s right. Indeed, I seldom watch professional quality newscasts and talking heads shows anymore precisely because the time and concentration commitment required to get much out of television can be used so much more efficiently online. Amateur television has all of the disadvantages of professional television without the advantages of professionalism.
