What the hell am I doing?

SHHHHHHHHHHHHH! It's a secret. Uh, no, it's not. I'm still figuring out my long term plans. For now, I can tell you that I am working on an *interim* project with a certain insanely awesome videoblogger. We should post it next week.

For now, check out this beautiful entry by Ironic1. Ironic1 always left very insightful comments on the RB comment board. Enabling those kind of connections is what makes videoblogging so freaking outta control amazing to me.

I've learned a lot and continue to learn from Robert Scoble (both on and offline-- and whether he knows it or not) about how to build a strong relationship with my viewers/friends. He's nailed that, in my opinion. I hope to continue communicating with all of you just as he communicates with his audience.

    Amanda,

    I am a new fan of yours. Didn't catch Rocketboom till the end. You are pretty impressive, and only 24? Wow!
    Ironic1, that was a nice "best of" list.

    Wha' happened?
    Boy, you take your eyes off the bloggosphere for two seconds and your whole world turns upside down. Amanda! I can't believe you're not going to be on Rocketboom anymore... (I know, old news right?) Two days of the new gal and I must say... You'll be missed. Your show introduced me to the world of podcasting, blogging and really to the larger picture of what the internet can be. Thank you for creating a culture and showing the world that we can expect something better! I know I speak for everyone when I say that we look forward to seeing you again soon, be it online or on TV. I hope you make it to LA sooner than later! Good luck and thanks again!

    hello amanda, they say that you are going to take the world from hollywood hills, what the hell you are going to do if they give you a paper where you have to kiss with tom cruise??? he will probably eat onions before....so big is the new enormous for you now, i hope i see you in a movie soon amanda!!!! :))

    So, is it time for CongdonBoom? Look I've got a camera I can loan ya. It's an XL1S, but that means its got firewire capability.

    What say we put together a site to get you back on the air? I can get the bandwidth/storage from some partners.

    ('uomhbhsh' for me. How'd you guys get such small verifications?)

    Dear Amanda,
    I too recently lost my job so I can empathize with you.
    I saw your replacement today and well while I'm sure she's a nice person, she's now Amanda!
    You were a delight to watch and I really got a kick out of your sense of humor.
    I also saw a video blog from some "gentleman" from 1938.com and he said some really tacky things about you. This guy showed no class.
    Well, sorry for the lengthy comment. I hope to see you doing your thing again. You are very good at it and you are not just a pretty face. You make people laugh and that means a lot with things the way they are in this world.
    Your beautiful and very funny. What a great combination!!!

  • At 1:43 PM, Blogger Jon Bonnell said…

    What say we all put together a site to Amanda back on the air, eh? As was pointed out, a video blog can be run from freakin' anywhere as long as you got internet access and a video camera.

    Ok, a computer helps, so does a studio, but, Amanda, you don't want to go the way of dodo, do you?

    I have some partners that can probably help with the site/bandwidth and, frankly, I can donate a camera for a while (its an XL1S, not new, but it is miniDV with firewire).

    Heck, you can always pick one up at Circuit City on their 30 day money back return policy.

    Amanda,

    You are always welcome at The "Schlenkie" Report. And I don't mean a job or anything serious like that. I just mean if you ever come up with an idea for a video blog I will gladly host it. Remember you are always welcome!

  • At 3:49 PM, Blogger Vic said…

    Amanda you're only 24! I always thought you were a wee bit older, but not by much.

    So did you catch the latest new RB show? I didn't want to say the actual show, but I was curious. Andrew makes a terrible actor and that childish skit he did at the begining of thurs. day show was uncalled for.

    Don't worry amanda, their new host will never be a replacement for you! But this won't bring you down, it'll only make you stronger. And your next show will be bigger and better than RB will ever be.

     
  • At 4:23 PM, Blogger jockgeek said…

    Amanda, you're fantastic! You've made quite a name for herself & helped to make RB what it is.

    I applaud you for sticking up for herself. You and RB were destined to outgrow each other, and this path allows the most opportunity for growth for everyone involved.

    Keep up the great work, Amanda!

    Amanda - good deal. Another joint project.

    Y'all get a written agreement, huh? Yes, I know he's awesome. So was the last guy. A writing helps everyone remember what is said and eliminates most of the controversy. Get it in writing, k?

    And you probably warrant an agent. If not now, then soon.

    amanda,

    Looking forward to your next venture.

    Perhaps you could make a living being a guest vblogger on all of our vblogs. It would be like a badge of honor to have you grace our vblogs. Oooh better yet, in a way to help the world, you could do a monthly ebay auction.... 1/2 the take goes to a charity and the other half goes to you. Philanthropy and VBlogging...

     
  • At 8:43 PM, Blogger Mike Johnston said…

    Amanda,

    You should do a guest appearance on "Ask A Ninja" and discuss ways of "fixing Rocketboom".

    That would be flippin' histerical!!!!

    Just My 2 cents

    Can't wait for the "new" stuff. ;)

  • At 12:51 AM, Blogger WrongwayStoryteller said…

    Yeee-haaa! Thanks Amanda for enabling me to actually watch that MSNBC video... note that the problem isn't just "the suckfest that is IE", it's also that MSNBC requires Media Player 10 (they are only up to version 9 for Macs), and version 10 incorporates DRM... as I was saying, roadblocks and toll collectors...

    I hope you don't actually go to L.A., though... too many posers out there. Stick to NYC or Boston.

    Hi Amanda,

    You say on your website you do ski-ing, hiking and travelling. Suggest you take a break and head out here to the Outer Hebrides (archipelago of islands off the west coast of Scotland). Far from the madding crowd; it's a good place to chill out and get your head back in order.

    Oh, btw we also have some of the best beaches in the world.

    Plenty of hiking and travelling; no ski-ing here tho' :-)

    MSNBC interview on YouTube. It was only a matter of time, as I informed MSNBC in my letter to them...

    "I have to use IE to watch your videos? Are you nuts? You just lost a potential viewer. I was going to your site to see the Amanda Congdon interview, but never mind. Do you really want to limit your viewership in this way? It seems very proprietary and very old media. Not a very smart web strategy.

    I'll stick with Firefox, thank you. Perhaps you haven't noticed, but the web is moving toward inclusivity, not exclusivity. I'm sure I'll be able to see this interview converted over and on YouTube in about, oh, I'd guess any minute now. Tell your advertisers that.

    Amanda, I first stumbled upon RB, via Tivo, and last week I was definatly shocked to see no episdoes downloaded. Being a tech savy person, I first checked all my connections... Is Tivo on? Is it connected to the Wi-Fi? Is it downloading data? All yes... confusion persists. With my work schedule I had not had time to view RB online. Today I took a break during lunch and caught up on my RB, to find the sad news. RB was a great show, but it won't be the same without you. I look forward to seeing you soon. Class of '99 Rocks!

  • At 9:42 PM, Blogger HSTRIP said…

    Dear Amanda,

    Sorry to see you leave the show.

    There was a small spark in time where you reigned supreme in the V-Blogosphere and where actually on the verge of greatness. Andrew Baron is a simple minded idiot. Not because of any thing you accused him of, but rather that he chose to destroy rather then exponentially create. Any other media mogul who is successful has franchised the hell out of success. Examples: Law and Order, CSI, American Idol. The formula is: duplicate and make more, not destroy and rebuild. I’m sure the masses would have loved Rocketboom West Coast and Rocket Book East Coast. We could have kept our love affair going with you Amanda, and welcomed your NYC replacement, rather than a comparative disappointment. It seems to me that Andrew lacks the self confidence to relinquish control, I don’t now how old he is, but a more mature person realizes that to manage grander scales, requires delegating old loved tasks to others. Managers with business experience get this and learn to not only to accept it, but embrace it and welcome the challenges that the higher positions presents.

    I have been in a similar situation with 5 people sharing equal portions of a video production company that had no money. We called it “The Modern Edge (Alternative Music News)”. It was MTV with a brain. It was great while it lasted, we went to concerts and night clubs for free, got back stage to meet and interview different music bands (Smashing Pumpkins, Morrissey, Mick Jones, Crowded House, APB just to name a few). Then, just when the Fox network got serious about some funding, everyone got greedy, insecure and possessive. It blew up, much like Rocketboom is doing right now.

    On the other hand, maybe this is all a PR stunt that is designed to draw attention to Rocketboom in the mainstream media and will eventually lead to Rocketbooms EAST and WEST. Then, Andrew would not be the idiot I accused him of being, but rather an evil genius. second only to Carl Rove. I hope I am right and this is just a PR stunt, ANDREW!!! HINT HINT (even if it not, you can pretend this was you idea all along) HINT HINT.

    Good luck Amanda, I’ll keep my eye out for your future successes.

    Amanda,

    I must admit I am a late comer to the RB and am sorry to hear that the two creators have had a falling out.

    It is obvious that you have a lot of talent and have really mastered the requirements for successful communications. Why not take a pause and use some of the time you have now to provide a public service. It seems that with all the strife around the world that a good lesson on better communication could benefit us all.

    Best wishes in whatever you plan.

    Amanda,

    I don't read blogs, nor do I watch them. But I did somehow end up on Rocketboom, and it was fab. Can't say I 'loved' it, but I DID love your enthusiasm (please ignore my poor spelling, I was raised by word processors). Put on or not, your enthusiasm is edible. Enough so that I joined this blog thingy just to say , groovy dude.

    You see, I have a sister, and like you she is very attractive, and also like you she is very intelligent and educated at diploma and degree levels (not to mention a masters in hooking my friends errr). but to cut to the point, I hate it the way some people comment on her like she's just a pretty face .

    So yea ..umn thats it. Screw the 49% rock boom't. I say strap on the balls, and keep that pretty face high. Hot chicks that are eduacted , thats fab.

    Umn,all the best then.
    bye

    I just heard the bad news. Amanda, we all love you and will forever miss your amazing RB productions. You taught us so much: about the stock market in Nigeria, the memorial of Wounded Knee, how robots dance like humans, and most importantly, how as humans, we ought not take life more serously than ourselves. Through tough times and easy ones, you helped us get through and move on. You have made us laugh and now with your exit from RB, you have made us cry. Happy times and sad, you were, are, and always will be a part of our lives. We hope and pray that in your next job, where ever it may be, you continue toenlighten and inspire us and that that job likewise will continue to enlighten and inspire you. Amanda, for the rest of your life, be blessed and serve as a blessing to all who know you.

    Perhaps one will see you in Second Life (a long-ago RB was my intro to that weird and lovely place), and perhaps one will see you somewhere available and spirit-enhancing again soon in RL. Cheers, good person, and best of the best to you.

    Sorry to hear about your being forced out. If I were you* I wouldn't take this lying down. Why should you forfeit your 49% if you left involuntarily? I think you should talk to a lawyer. And I don't mean a derivatives lawyer, like me. I mean a litigator. A mean one that lives in the basement and eats raw meat.

    *actually, if I were you, I would pose for Playboy and marry a really rich and disgustingly old guy and wait for him to die. It worked for Anna Nicole.

    Amanda, it's been way too long since we've heard anything from you. July 13 feels like a decade ago. Please post something just to let us know your still alive. It's becoming too unbearable without you.

    Vlogs dont succeed unless they're published regularly. Nothing truer.

    I gotta Q I've been tossing like a dime:

    When you communicate with us, its one to many, and we see a video of you (or we used to) and get a lot of insight into your character (whether its acting or not its still you). When we communicate with you, all you get is a comment, or an email, or a link maybe, and you get lots and lots of them.

    What's it like having so many faceless names all trying to talk to you about the same thing at the same time?

    It would overwhelm me, I think, trying to engage so many people that I know so little about. Were I in your position I would probably just respond & interact w my audience when I wanted to - which means that I'd only respond to a very select few comments and stop as soon as I got tired. Or if I were in a bad mood I wouldnt read or respond to any comments at all. Yet I do see you responding to people's comments, at least semi-regularly. You said you had 2 thousand emails, that seems like too many to read, frankly.

    Human beings can't really handle maintaining hundreds or thousands of relationships with other people and doing something that approximates that has gotta b grating at times, especially when the content is mostly negative or critical. You aren't the 1st to ever be in that position but it would be cool to get your insight into the matter, supposing you have some, and also have the inclination, and the time.

    Um...Just curious.

    Whatever good luck as always still a big big fan who is hoping to accidentally bump into you while you're in CT.

    I guess things change. I finally watched the new RB and well, I could barely sit through it. Probably my resistance to change, but maybe I just miss you and your wit. Wish I could take a break from making piles of pottery to go to Blogher, maybe next time. Meanwhile, what color would you like you new cup to be, to match your new set?
