Vlogging is the New Podcasting.

If you think podcasting is cool, wait until you meet the vloggers. Vloggers use video on their blogs. Vloggers make videos of their lives and then share them on the internet. Come down to the Apple Store and meet them and learn how to vlog.


Here are the vloggers who will be teaching you how to vlog:

Bre Pettis is an artist, school teacher and obsessive vlogger. He will be hosting the presentation and teaching the basics of vlog making. Bre vlogs at http://imakethings.com and founded the blog about vlogs: http://wearethemedia.com.

Clint Sharp is a Media Maker and hosts his own show “Clint on Tech.” He can be found evangelizing the powers of vlogging at http://clintsharp.com.

Melanie Sharp makes video content out of her own life… and her dog's! You can find her vlogs over at http://melslife.org.

Matt Savarino and Peter Doyle are the brains behind the vlogmap at http://vlogmap.org which maps all the vloggers in the world. They also have a great vlog that documents their adventures in Seattleover at http://leanbackvids.com.

Quote:

“We are in the midst of a grassroots media revolution that embraces the personal perspective. Vlogging takes the power of the media and puts it into the hands of the people. Vlogging embraces the personal voices of real people in the world. By sharing our lives and our stories through video, we take the media back and give the power to anyone with a video camera and a connection to the internet.” –Bre Pettis
