Session 3: Media-driven blogs: Vlogs (video blogging) and podcasts

Podcasts and vlogs are multimedia versions of the traditional text-based blog. Podcasts traditionally were audio blogs. Vlogs, a contraction of the words ‘video’ and ‘log’ were video blogs.

The first worldview sees evolution as an essentially open-ended process of unlimited potential, while the second regards evolution as more predictable. If the latter is true, can we make
