LOS ANGELES – Seesmic, a new "video conversation company" launched by uber blogger Loic Le Meur, will provide a plug-in for video comments to be uploaded to MoveableType and TypePad blogs later this month, Beet.TV has learned.
I caught up with Seesmic evangelist Cathy Brooks at a poolside party on Monday night at the Digital Hollywood conference.
Earlier this month, Seesmic provided a plug-in for WordPress blogs. Today, some 300 blogs are using the plug-in. The availability to upload videos to the popular TypePad and MoveableType platforms will surely drive adoption.
Whether video uploads will be more than a fascinating development and if it will become a part of the blogesphere is tough to say, as Josh Catone over at Read/Write/Web has pointed out.
I think video comments could be huge for popular culture blogs. Not sure if businesspeople will upload to blogs like Beet.TV, but we hope to give it a try on this TypePad-powered blog soon.
