Given I’m using the word sucks today (hey, only a few more days till settlement on The Blog Herald) I though I might share this thought: I think Rocketboom sucks… sort of. I’ve subscribed to it in the past using my Windows XP Media Center Edition box (which is plugged into the main TV) and although I found it occasionally funny, I mostly found it pretty stupid. So there :-)
But why sort of? because I love the idea behind it, that anyone can now broadcast and be watched. I think the fact that Rocketboom auctioned off its ad space on eBay on the condition that they produced the ad as brilliant. I love the fact that Rocketboom is leading the way in and encoraging others to do this sort of thing. It’s just a shame I don’t enjoy the content that much.
Every year for the past 2 years I’ve read that video blogging is going to be the next big thing. 2006 might be that year and we’ll have Rocketboom to thank for it.
