There’s something to be said for the phenomenon that is amateur video on the Web. After earning Time’s Person of the Year, the “you” generation continues to drive the new web with each video and picture posted, tagged, and shared, every blog post and podcast, trackback, link, and comment, through every social bookmark, annotation, and search, all of the twitter casts, and micro and mobile text and IM updates we broadcast. Now, get ready for lifecasting. Lifecasting is the new…

On the Road Again – Amanda Congdon Heads Across America

Cue the Willie Nelson track… If you’ve visited Amanda’s blog recently, you might have seen the following message: “No Boom Involved. This blog has retired. Please consider this site the Amanda archive from the Rocketboom era. Bye blogspot. You’ve served me well, but I won’t miss you. PLEASE UPDATE YOUR LINKS AND SUBSCRIBE to AmandaAcrossAmerica.com through my ovlov feed.” As it turns out, Amanda is indeed unboomed. She’s heading out to Los Angeles, which many of you know has been…

Amanda Congdon is Popurl’ar Again

(c) Amanda Congdon I stopped by Amanda’s place over the weekend and was pleasantly surprised to read her latest post. According to Congdon, “I’m SOOOOOOOOOOO Popurl!!!! Wow!! My popurls collaboration is getting quite the attention.” And according to the Popurl blog, “pop goes the url again! I’m announcing the cooperation with amanda congdon. launching in september she will remix the best urls from popurls every weekday in her own little box right on popurls.” Cool. Amanda then continued in her…

Rocketboom Tears Down the Wall (Map)

Yesterday on Rocketboom, host Joanne Colan surprised us with her closing statement, or actions rather, by turning around and ripping down the famous wall map that has served as the backdrop faithfully since episode one. Yes, we knew that this was inevitable – especially since this is Rocketboom 2.0. News? Hardly. Fun? Sure. The interesting thing here however, is that they claim to be responding to growing viewer complaints that the map needed to go. And even more interesting, was…

Amanda Congdon Stars in "Where are They Now"

Just when the blogosphere was starting to question her future, Amanda Congdon reminds us that she’s still around (and talented) with an amusing, but sad reminder of her current reality. With a clever twist however, we zoom in on Amanda wearing a business suit, eating breakfast in front of an audience comprised of stuffed dolls at her parent’s home. Congdon picks up a familiar stack of papers and begins to read the news to her captive viewers. “In today’s news,…

Rocketboom 2.0 Blasts Off

After much anticipation (or shall we say fanfare), Rocketboom 2.0 launched today with its new “interim” host, Joanne Colan. You may know Joanne as a former VJ for MTV Europe. To most of us however, she is an attractive woman with an English accent. I was unfamiliar with her work, so I approached today’s vlog with an open mind. After the surprise announcement of the Andrew/Amanda split, bloggers and reporters feverishly tapped sources to uncover the new replacement. Rachel Sklar…

RocketDoom…RocketBust – Cue The Elton John Track

Today’s edition of Rocketboom will be filed under the, “no really, we can keep a show going without the star who put us on the map.” Andrew Baron, what possibly could have pushed you to place yourself in such a PR nighmare? The news is everywhere! Techcrunch reported that Congdon was fired, Valleywag dedicated a dozen entries to the subject. Donna Bogatin from Digital Micro-Markets Blog summarized it this way, “From Rocketboom to UnBoomed: Web 2.0 partnership fizzles out.” Office…
