Paloma Baytelman, a Chilean journalist, blogger and consultant in media and digital content for the Library of Congress in Chile, has her own online tv channel, which she has called PalomaTV. What started as an exercise in constancy, taking advantage of the feature in the Flickr photo sharing site of uploading short videos, has become a way for her to show the daily life of a young woman living and working in Santiago de Chile, and she now has a YouTube channel where she is also uploading videos.
One of her videos [es] is of her going to vote, where she tells how once Paloma turned 18, her mother warned her that if she didn't register to vote, she would have to move out. She gets on the bus, votes and then proudly shows her inked finger:
The next video records her experience getting on a Santiago bus on her way to the Synagogue and noticing that the bus driver had dressed himself as Santa Claus. She took the opportunity to interview him and his wife, uploaded the video and wrote about it on her blog [es]:
This next video has Gaby, Paloma's sister telling of a harrassment experience she had with a promotional character for a drugstore chain, when after a friendly dance, the foam covered character grabbed her arm and wouldn't let her go, then touched her all over with the foamy gloves and when her friends took her away from him, the Dr. Simi character crumpled up the flyers he was handing out and proceded to pelt Gaby with them as she walked away:
Through her work, blog and videoblog, Paloma has also managed to interview key figures in Web 2.0 such as Tim O'Reilly, Howard Rheingold (Smart Mobs), Nicolás Copano (Chile), Peter Rock (Chile), Chris Anderson (Wired) and still unpublished, there's an interview with Jay Adelson (Digg) and Jimmy Wales (Wikipedia). The following video has her interviewing Tim O'Reilly [en], you can view it with Spanish subtitles here.
You can view these and other videos on her Flickr page, or on her YouTube channel, PalomaTV, where she also captions and subtitles some of her videos. The image used on this post was a self-portrait from her flickr page.
