Susan Whitfield, Hybilogs and the Hybridosphere



The hybrilog is an hybrid blog constituted by different types of blogs. For instance, an hybrilog may contain a text blog, a video diary, a poetry video blog, an art diary, an hypermedia blog and a game diary. Producing an hybrilog allows an author to construct a mixed digital style of writing, using the virtualities of different and complementary media. Conversely, a reader may experiment, in the same hybrilog, diverse kinds of media reading. A set of several hybrilogs structure the hybridosphere.

Let's take a closer look to these concepts. First, a vlog states for a kind of blog that uses mainly video clips for communicating messages through the Internet, in a regular basis. This mode of posting is often called videocasting. Secondly, a pvilog may be understood as a poetic-video-diary that distributes video poetry in a frequent cadence in the WWW (videopoetry casting). Furthermore, an artblog is a digital diary containing art works, and delivered in a current sequence across the net. Such a strategy of planetary dissemination of art works is named artcasting. In the same perspective, a hyplog can be considered a diary that posts hypermedia regularly inside the web, circumscribing hypercasting. Finally, a gamelog signifies a type of blog that diffuses games, in an immediate or at least durable rhythm. This ubiquitous style of global game spread is denominated gamecasting. To conclude, the hybrodosphere forges a public sphere inside cyberspace, by means of several kinds of blogs, like a text blog or a video blog. The blogosphere is no longer based in an unique method of blogging, and presently is being transformed deeply by the emergence of these different modes of casting in the Internet. A consequence of this process is the birth of an inedited hybrid cyberopinion developed daily by infonauts.Permission is granted to copy, distribute and/or modify this document under the terms of the GNU Free Documentation License, Version 1.2 or any later version published by the Free Software Foundation; with no Invariant Sections, with no Front-Cover Texts, and with no Back-Cover Texts.
