Rheingold launches vlog

For those of us who love Howard Rheingold’s work, he is flinging himself into video blogging (or I suppose video podcasting). Twenty years ago (that long?), Rheingold penned A Slice of Life in My Virtual Community and as he thought about updating it, video came to mind as a way of sharing the parts of his life that we don’t know about such as his painting, gardening and sculpting. Plus, he’ll be doing a series of short videos that document how he uses social media in his professional and personal life.

Now showing is a video on how he used technology way back when for activism and how more powerful technology has changed things and moved us towards participatory media. He also talks about the impact of social networks and collective action.
