Unlike blogs where anyone can sit around in their pajamas in a dimly lit room at home and crank out a fine and successful blog, vlogging involves a lot more elements – compelling content, production value and relevancy.
Steven Levy, Newsweek’s senior editor for tech coverage, tells Beet.TV that as online video distribution and format get better, vlogs will have to look good to be successful. He foresees a sort of two-tier system developing of amateur and professional vlogs.
Steven also shares his thought on how iTunes will play a greater role in propagating community-generated video. And, finally he shares his thoughts about the current reality and future prospects for consumption of online video on home televisions.
