Re: [videoblogging] Multimedia
Web Browsers (Webkit, Gecko).
The web page should be considered the viable multimedia canvas of the
future. Continued advancements in web browser capabilities will lead to
multimedia that we normally see with Flash or even Quicktime can be

That's the quest. Since I ain't code proficient I'm not about to redesign the web but it's the mix that matters -- and how to DISPLAY the mix.

I post slideshows either as powerpoint
---or as image slideshows (when I use Picasa slideshow tool)
or as pdf presentations, using Sribd
and videos of course from all over...
but to pull it together I've tried networking video
into channel aggregates.

I think thats' the key direction that will over time likely bear the best fruit. It's so easy to mix and match feeds rather than websites.
