Ze Frank

Video blogging is gaining momentum as an alternative entertainment/news source. Over the last few weeks, I’ve become a regular viewer of Ze Frank’s The Show. As Dave Winer has stated, Ze is so good at communicating via this medium that it’s revolutionary. Embracing a medium for its attributes, instead of simply transferring elements from existing media, is the heart of effective elearning, online journalism, and internet entertainment. Rocketboom was one of the first popular vlogs, but it essentially duplicated a TV-based newscast. Ze manages to transcend the ties to TV news and provide a product that is much more reflective of citizen journalism/entertainment.
