New startup video blog digest thing, inexplicably on the front page sidebar of Ars (unflagged advertising placement?). Like Rocketboom, but with two very important differences. Firstly, it’s shorter. Secondly, it’s just about watchable. It’ll be interesting to see if they inherit Rocketboom’s highly flexible format, or stick with a quick blog overview.

(and for the record: I think Joanne Colan is a distinct improvement on Amanda Congdon, but still needs to work on slowing down a little, and on softening the more strident edges to her voice. I so want to like Rocketboom and their quirky story choice and format, and I drop back every few months, but I don’t think I’ve ever managed to sit all the way through one of their episodes.)
