Video blogs are the journal-style web sites containing downloadable home-made video clips. "Vlogging" is one of the most interesting and rapily growing new forms of moving image production and distribution. Andrew Michael Baron and Amanda Cogdon's newscast Rocketboom, produced for $25 a day in Baron's apartment, has more than 100,000 viewers. Ravi Jain's Drivetime is a weekly talk show taped in Jain's car during his one-hour commute to and from metropolitan Boston. Lodwick's Vimeo is a popular site for uploading and sharing video clips.
