Some things at YesButNoButYes never seemed to catch on the way we'd hoped. As the DeathClock counts down, I thought I'd give a shout out to three of the things we tried early on and then abandoned.
The Moblog Project was a sidebar feature, that included one original photograph per day. Starting in February 2005 and lasting nearly two years, all the images were shot with phonecams, usually by myself. I seem to remember using a Treo, and compared to todays phones, they were all pretty low resolution, but there was something cool about the immediacy of a mobile snap. Some were pretty good, some were pretty awful, but nevertheless they provided a daily look at (mostly) NYC.
The YesButNoButYes Podcast preceded Three Chords, and lasted for a total of one teaser and two episodes. Featuring a round table with myself, Miss C, Jellio and Muggler, they were a look at recent stories (which will mean very little now). Both episodes are still available to download and listen to.
PodGuide.TV was a sister blog that reviewed video podcasts. We set it up in the days shortly after the first video iPod was introduced. Eventually abandoned in apathy after a disheartening legal tussle with a potential investor (one of the founders of MySpace no less), it still produced a pilot episode featuring Geekbrief TV's Cali Lewis.
