Morning run (20/06/2009) with video of route and comments restricted to surroundings.

The objective was to see how possible it is to run, hold a small video camera and simultaneously talk sensibly about any topic which comes to mind.

This is part of a research investigation I am conducting to determine the relative merits of various online services in terms of impact and responsiveness of the public to the content over time, efficacy of the video medium for generic blogging, quality of presentation of various video formats, and ease of publication of video blogs on different sites. YouTube, Blogger and this site currently hold copies of each of the video blogs.

The investigation will try to identify any threads of interest and then it will deliberately promote that content. Hopefully this will increase the audience. This is quite a natural course of events for social networking sites which aspire to have a measure of success. It is assumed and expected that there will be very little public interest for perhaps 6 months. Thereafter it is hoped that whatever little interest there may be will quickly develop into a viable cohort as the interested parties become contributors.

Although the videos have been created to give the video blog some content to facilitate the investigation, the exercise certainly adds a degree of interest to each run for the subject.
