- Incidentally, I thought this was kinda cool. I am one of three final
nominees on diarist.net for an award category, Best Use of
Multimedia in a Site (I presume in a blog-type site). Link:
http://diarist.net/awards/nominees-site.html ... They describe the
category as so:
Recognizes excellence in use of audio (RealAudio,
WAV, MIDI), video (RealVideo, QuickTime, AVI),
and multimedia plug-ins (Flash), both in the
quality of the specific media used and how well it
enhances the overall journal experience. Any format,
whether industry-standard or proprietary, is
acceptible provided the needed software is freely
available. However, the breadth of the overall
audience (access to users of older browsers and
the equivalent plug-ins) is a factor.
I don't think I deserve to win, but I DO think its cool that people
are starting to pay attention to multi-media presentation as a part
in personal journaling/personal reporting/blogging/whathaveyou. A
year ago, I wasn't even aware that other people were vidblogging.
Now, with the help of forums like this and the fact that we're doing
what we're doing, the web's becoming a much more interesting place
(knock on wood).
