New blog on Web video from the NY Times: `Screens'

Virginia Heffernan, a TV critic at the NY Times, launched a blog last week called `Screens,' focusing on Web video.

Of her mission, Heffernan writes:

    ...[W]ith everyone creating and producing and uploading now, who is going to be on the downside, watching and savoring it all? All of that web video, viral video, user-driven video, custom interactive video, consumer-generated video, embedded video ads, web-based VOD, broadband television, diavlogs, vcasts, vlogs, video podcasts, mobisodes, webisodes and mashups?

    Um, me? Yes, that’s my idea. I’ll watch. That’s what Screens is for.

Sounds good, and this will be a blog to watch (only one entry so far). But Heffernan betrays that she's a newbie to the world of online video when she mentions she has not heretofore heard of zefrank, who made the wonderful predecessor to Judson Laipply's Evolution of Dance.
