Detailed Description

Update

Rocketboom is one of the most popular video blogs on the web today. Every Monday through Friday in the morning, Rocketboom releases a new episode. The low-cost operation, which requires only a video camera, a Mac pro, three lights and a map with very little additional overhead or costs. Topics of Rocketboom videos typically cover top news stories of the day, international arts and business, technology news, and a quirky section of internet culture and weblog drama. Rocketboom uses RSS feeds to provide the segments on-demand and easily available to viewers. Sticking to their low cost high output plan, Rocketboom spends $0 on promotion, relying solely on word-of-mouth. Rocketboom is based in New York, New York.
