I only heard about Rocketboom given the explosion in posting around the blogosphere when there was a meltdown with the previous host.

Truly, any publicity is good publicity.

Robert Scoble pointed to the latest Friday Rocketboom entry (that makes two Friday Rocketboom entries viewed for me now) so I gave it a watch - always something good to do while putting off a load of laundry - Rocketboom for 7/21/06 - how to tie shoelaces.

Now I'm amazing myself with a new way to tie my laces. But video-blogging? Or video viewing in general?

The one thing about the web and blogging is that appeals to the multi-task textual scan nature of the increasingly complex person. Video watching is a stop everything and pay attention event. So either it has to be short or very well done and meaningful.

The laces bit is shot and edited very well. I especially love the bits around the implications of having two extra seconds back in your life - and in case you didn't notice, there's a directors cut: a nice nod to insiders.

So I'll probably be back, at least every Friday, to check in on Rocketboom. And if anyone can put up a how-to on how to do a New York City cab-call whistle (I've always wanted to know), I'd be deeply appreciative... I figure one of those shrill whistles can probably bring traffic to a halt in Seattle.
