Update: Rocketboom, the internet video show (vlog) has decided to opt out of Abbey Corps, an online video project that wanted to become a new kind of a network for the post-TV video content. We confirmed this information with Andrew Baron, earlier today.

Abbey Corps made news last December, but recently many have asked whatever happened to that effort.

While Baron declined to give us details about why he decided to opt out the proposed venture, he did say that he was going to be spending an extensive amount of time and energy on Rocketboom.

Rocketboom will expand beyond the current 3-minute daily show format. He is planning an additional Afternoon Update for Rocketboom and a Sunday show that would feature video content from Make magazine.

Andrew Baron and Jeff Pulver confirm the news on their respective blogs.
