My own dream is that the Web will mature into a seamless metamedium, in which one can use video, text, graphics, audio or animation at any moment, depending on what you’re trying to say. And even though we’ve struggled for years with how to do that on professional news Web sites, we’re still far from a truly fluid and intuitive solution. Perhaps it will be the vloggers who will help figure out exactly how our metamedium in the making will ultimately play out.- Ready for your close-up?

So have you heard about vlogging, or videoblogging?
After checking their site out, I tried to find a baseball vlog. No luck but I did find Steve and Carol, er, Carol and Steve Garfield’s report on their recent outing to Fenway Park. According to Blogumentary, Steve’s vlog hosted the first paid videoblog ad. Blogumentary also has a link to Random Show’s very creative video production of his fellow vloggers across the world. That’s the kind of discovery you really enjoy finding after hours of surfing. Nice job.
Anyway, Giants' fans will be interested in something I found along the way. It’s not a vlog but a regular website called Shaping San Francisco. Worth checking out. There's various articles and also some great pictures of old SF ballparks from the Gear Collection.
