BRAD RUBENSTEIN is blogging from Digital Life Day in Munich. Excerpt:
One of my favorite pull quotes - Gabe McIntyre, of xolo.tv. "Blogs are OK, but there is so much text, and I hate to read..." He then launched his promo-reel of video blogs. I suspect a quarter of the audience had their cell phones out, taking pictures which will probably appear on flickr before you know it. Preaching (almost literally) to the converted. . . .
I'm struck by the large number of projects going on in areas I am interested in, which I feel like I'm falling upon just by chance. Almost every web site that people are talking to me about is new to me. It's not just information overload in general, even in the narrow niche where I want to know what's going on, it's too much to keep track of. The internet is too big, that's the problem.
