Association introduces video podcast

The National Association of Photoshop Professionals recently introduced Photoshop TV, a video podcast, which replaces Photoshop Radio, a traditional podcast. It's the #1 video podcast at iTunes. Thanks to FastRead for the tip.

I think this begs the question, that I've been thinking about for a while: Are traditional text blogs passe? Podcasts and video podcasts have both taken off this year. I know it's not quite 2006, but is it fair to begin saying, "A blog? That's SO 2005."

Think of it this way - what's easier to produce? Unless you are willing to put in a lot of hours, its hard to match the effectiveness, of a well-written blog post. And you can't link or quote (as easily). I think traditional text-based blogging is hear to stay if only for its accessibility. But you're going to see more integration of other media. People will start using audio and video within their regular text-based blog, but not as a replacement. Have you seen youtube.com yet? It's flickr for video - it even gives you the code to embed a tidy flash video player right into your page.

I just figured it out -- why I prefer to read posts rather than listen/watch. . . . You can't skim audio or video.

Also, you have to turn off your radio. ;-)
