Video blogging, vlogging, video podcasting or whatever you want to call it has allows every incompetent moron to start his/her own TV show. The result of this is mostly terrabytes of video material that nobody watches. However, sometimes a show manages to attract and maintain some kind of audience.
"How do they do that?" You will ask. One must understand that at this point (and likely for a very long time to come), only geeks are the ones that will actually sit behind a PC to watch this new "TV". So geeks, and let's face it these are going to be 99% males, are the main audience. On Techcrunch I found this about the new show WebbAlert:
The focus of the show will be the major breaking technology and gaming news of the day. Like Rocketboom, each show will be no more than 5 minutes long, for easy consumption. Unlike Rocketboom, I’ve been able to sit through a whole episode - the early content that I’ve seen, including the pilot, is interesting and compelling.
Of course I was intrigued. What was it in this show that makes it so compelling? Quickly I found the answer:
Some things are just not that difficult to figure out. A pair of boobs will make your show a whole lot more "interesting and compelling".
