Personal Democracy Forum: Political Videoblogging

At the recent Personal Democracy Forum in NYC, Hipcast community manager Steve Garfield gave a real time demonstration of how easy it is to take a video using a digital camera, and post that video to a blog using Hipcast.

From Poli/Tech Conference: V-Blogging, Control or No?:

“V-blog aficionado Steve Garfield shared his experiences working on Boston City Councilor John Tobin’s ’06 campaign. Garfield convinced the candidate to create short video clips for his site — stuff featuring him at local events promoting initiatives, at a council meeting, in the public square, that sort of thing. Evidently, Tobin was so taken with the potential for video blogging and his site he had all his bumper stickers and lawn signs changed to read, ‘VoteJohnTobin.com’ — that’s it. The candidate created a new video for each of the 9 days leading up to the city election.”

The Personal Democracy Forum was a fun experience!
