Amanda Congdon vlogs her heart out.
Amanda Congdon vlogs her heart out.Over the past two years, Amanda Congdon slowly became one of the most influential and far-reaching personalities on the web. It didn't hurt that the former model, 24, lights up the pixels, but it was her goofball antics when talking about BitTorrent that made her the media darling of Internet geeks the world over.Congdon's fame stems from the quirky, bite-sized video reports she filed as the anchor and co-writer of the video-blog (vlog), Rocketboom. Collecting Internet-based stories that ran the gamut from the totally absurd to the politically serious, Rocketboom positioned itself as a web alternative to traditional broadcasting. Says Congdon, "We like to cut out most of the middlemen that mainstream media is accustomed to, since, after all, content is king." On a given morning, viewers could be treated to anything from a grainy clip of a mesmerizing performance by the European hacky-sack champion, to Congdon posing as a young Republican debating the pros and cons of owning a Hummer.
