Yahoo launches Vlog (Video Blog !!!)

Yahoo has launched a new video blog, or vlog, which aims to highlight the nine most interesting sites, stories and videos on the Web. Called "The 9", the show is updated every weekday morning and hosted by mtvU VJ Maria Sansone. While most of the show is put together by producers at Yahoo, it asks viewers to submit an item for the "Pepsi 10th," a segment sponsored by the soft drink maker.

"We quickly bundle it all together into a neat, fast-paced and work-friendly package and try to get it up by about 9am," Yahoo says in the description of the show. Yahoo's choice of name is interesting: Microsoft has a video blog as well, called "10." However, the Redmond company's vlog only contains company-produced video segments.
