Have you heard of YouTube.com? It's a place to post homemade videos, and thus "bVlog_manroadcast yourself" to the world. Just for fun, I decided to find out if anyone was making videos on the disease at hand -- and guess what? They are!

Search for the term "diabetes" on that site, and you get an array of quick-flicks ranging from irreverant parodies of Wilford Brimley for the Big D to child's diagnosis in claymation.

Do check out "The Diabetes Song." It's worth sitting through the first few minutes of inane chatter... painfully witty.

Hey OC, could personal vodcasting be our Next Big Thing? I think it would be pretty darn cool to shoot some of our own irreverant footage. I'd do it myself straight away if my plate weren't so exquisitely full at the moment. (Work, plus that book, and those three girls -- two of whom just had rollicking week-long birthday-fests -- the back-to-back-BBQs this week, tomorrow's dinner menu, that wash in the dryer...)

Anyway, more about vlogging (video blogging) in this month's Wired Magazine. Enjoy.
