One trend to watch this year is the boom in well produced, niche video blogs.  The children of Rocketboom

My favorite example is Wallstrip, a daily video blog that takes an in depth look at a hot stock each day from a sort of layman’s perspective.  Using humor, they try to explain in real world terms why a stock is doing so well.

I think it is terrific.

To give you a taste, following is a recent show in which a bunch of venture capitalists race to see who is the most proficient on a Blackberry.  Most of the shows are a bit more informational than this one, but it gives you a taste of Wallstrip’s tone

On a side note, I think it is just a matter of time before someone does this for the political scene in DC. I’m looking forward to it and I hope it is as good as Wallstrip.
