CNN is Very Good for Blip.tv

Heather Green

CNN's move to plough into social media by launching a service that lets the public upload videos, articles, and recordings, is good for Blip.tv. The NYC service, which provides video uploading and hosting services, is the partner of choice for CNN. And as it happens...the Oxygen Network and the William Shatner DVD Club.

Blip.tv is a popular and easy to use service that lets people distribute--and retain control of their videos online.

Seems like a great move for both sides. Blip.tv doesn't get the buzz that YouTube gets, but lots of vloggers (including me) give them props for integrating Creative Commons licenses into their service, so video producers can feel confident that their work can be shared without being exploited. I hope this partnership gives them the attention they deserve.

You do well to emphasize the retaining of rights of video content.

I think we must, all of us, move beyond text blogging, beyond audio blogging/podcasting, and move into video blogging, especially CEOs.

CEO video will be a new and fast way to regain credibility and competitive edge. I'm experimenting with various serious and comical approaches, and letting the world see my mistakes and my triumphs.

But I will soon be using OurMedia or some other service that lets me retain rights over my own material.

CEO vlogging is mandatory.

Coming soon: web as telepresence, as is touched upon by the August 8, 2006 issue of PC Magazine. (Dvorak gripes about CSS in this issue, too.)

If CEOs are afraid of blogging "risks", are they ready for video post "risks", and then telepresencing and computelepathy "risks"?

They better not be intimidated by the new technology as it flows onward imperialistically, fulfilling the faux "Technological Imperative".
