Blogs on CNN

As part of my new exercise kick, I was browsing the channels at the gym and caught the end of a CNN segment on blogs. It appeared as though two bloggers (Joi Ito and Rebecca MacKinnon) were being interviewed via webcam in front of a studio audience. Neither said anything terribly new to me, but it was nice to see some of these ideas get more play in such a public forum.
As for the idea of using webcams for broadcast interviews such as this, I think the technology needs to be developed a bit more before widespread adoption. The audio, especially for Ito, was hard to understand, and the visuals were pixelated and clunky.
