Local vBlogger, rising media star and all-round
good guy Steve Garfield is
featured this morning in a comprehensive review of
the evolving blogosphere in the New
York Times.

Some vloggers are further blurring the lines between journalism and
blogging by producing news reports of local interest. Steve Garfield
of Boston, a self-described citizen reporter, took a video camera to
investigate, among other things, whether election campaign workers were
following the law by staying 150 feet from polling stations. He posted
his report at stevegarfield.blogs.com/videoblog/2004/09/150_feet.html.

Way to go, Steve, but they should’ve used this
video
(starring yours truly) instead…..
