Vloggers Participating in Videoblogging Week 2006

The Hot Tag on Technorati right now is videobloggingweek2006!

You can follow all the Videoblogging Week 2006 action over there.

Although some vloggers have reported delays in seeing their posts over there, it seems to be working pretty well.

Aidan Owens put the following together to keep track of the participants -- we're still working on the enclosure parts.

List of participants:

Add your vlog to the list of participants:

Maybe the most important part is that there is a River of News page that compiles everyone's posts into one page for reading:

Everyone's Posts in a River of News:

It's getting there...

What we would like to have is the following:

1 RSS feed that would have all the vlogweek participants with enclosures.

1 web page that could show us a River of Videos

Is there anything I can use to create this?

You can also hop on over to Mefeedia where some of the videos are tagged with videobloggingweek2006:

Not sure how I'd use this...

Check out this new automated system which provides rss enclosure extraction and searching.

This is an experimental service developed by Shane Andrusiak.

Here's his RSS feed with enclosures that you can subscribe to in an aggregator like FireAnt:

I just tested this and FireAnt downloaded 54 new videobloggingweek2006 videos for me to watch. There goes three hours...

For those interested in OPML, here's an OPML file to import all the feeds to your OMPL reader:

I was playing with an early version of the list in OPML a little bit and came up with this:

Videoblogging Week 2006 - April 3rd - 9th

Last year we had Videoblogging Week 2005.

This year is going to be even bigger!

April 3-9, seven days of vlogging. One video a day!

Get involved and get ready to do some serious vlogging!

Tagging your videos makes it easy for Technorati to find your videobloggingweek2006 posts and compile a list of them for everyone to see.

Be sure to COPY and PASTE this into your blog posts:

Technorati Tag: <a href="" rel="tag">videobloggingweek2006</a>.

Technorati Tag: videobloggingweek2006

Watch the technorati tag “videobloggingweek2006″ for all the videos starting on April 3rd.

Stephanie Bryant calls it The Week of Vlogging Dangerously and says:
Who: YOU!
What: 1 week (7 days) of posting a videoblog post every day.
When: April 3-9 (to get a full weekend in at the end)
Why: because it's fun!

Since it's the week of vlogging dangerously, try to do something risky or different from your routine and vlog it. Maybe it's talking to a stranger, or sneaking a camcorder into a store with "NO VIDEO OF THIS PREMISES ALLOWED." Maybe it's subverting the dominant paradigm, or perhaps it's risking your very soul by buying into the paradigm for a day.

You decide the file format, server, etc. This is just a challenge to
get your out there and videoblogging!
