In the first years of the 2000s, online DIY video cultures went through a small renaissance as the web  transformed under the influence of blogging and Web 2.0, which massified access to web-based text, audio, and video publishing. In this lecture, interspersed with rare video clips rescued from now defunct blogs and services, media scholar Trine Bjørkmann Berry and Kristoffer Gansing chronicle and analyze this  moment of “video blogging” as a unique phenomenon of vernacular video making. Early video tools were limited, with little or no online video distribution, and widespread incompatibilities in video production and consumption. This is not just video blogging before YouTube, it is also a matrix pointing to a mode of participation beyond corporate networks.
