JS Online: Podcasts are SO last year


(Photo/Jack Orton) Pete Prodoehl edits video he will upload to his video blog site from his Oconomowoc home Tuesday. People such as Prodoehl are using inexpensive software and high-speed Internet connections to share video clips of their lives.

Podcasting isn't passé yet, but the seeds of an even newer electronic world are sprouting in Waukesha County and elsewhere around the country.

From unbashful bloggers to proselytizing pastors, people are using inexpensive software and high-speed Internet connections to share video clips of their lives.

With a mouse click, you can now be whisked to the Oconomowoc home of Pete Prodoehl - one of Wisconsin's first video bloggers - to see "Scary Basement Room," "Shoes" or "Water Sports."

Those are some of the "vlogs"- short video vignettes about whatever pops into his mind or life - that Prodoehl, 36, began posting in May on his www.tinkernet.org Web site. They star an empty cellar room and his torn sneakers, all captured doing nothing by a sometimes jerky, hand-held camera. An earlier one showed Prodoehl, a computer programmer for a publishing firm, riding a bicycle into a lake off a pier.

Then ride the technological ripple of what could become a new wave of Christian outreach into Brookfield at www.brooksidebaptist.org. You can see kids singing, clapping, jumping or throwing water balloons during vacation Bible school activities at Brookside Baptist Church. Or, you can see and hear Pastor Sam Horn giving his latest sermon. (more)
