15mb of fame

August 21, 2007

someone said this to me in a meeting and i thought it was hilarious. although i am glad the reigns of distribution has been moved from the hands of a few and given to the masses…some of the content i see online scares me. just because you can doesn’t mean you should. its like watching grass grow but in a flash video player. i think you get the picture.

there are some really talented online producers out there and i hope they get there 15mb of fame but does everyone with a camcorder deserve to film themselves?

check out black 20.com these guys are doing some really funny stuff.

tv nets fight back….youtube dead?

March 22, 2007

well it had to happen. nbc and fox have teamed up to create a new video sites that will carry all their content for free. i just want to point out a few things:

1. users will be able to get all these shows in one place

2. advertisers will be able to buy both tv and online through one source

3. the power of the nets to market this to users

i am not saying youtube, joost, and other are done but as a user on techcrunch says…”its not a divorce of ugc and professional content but it is a separation”. true, true.

i know this is not the last we will hear from google and co on the topic but if viacom took the gloves off with the 1b dollar lawsuit then nbc and fox threw the first bare knuckle punch.

read full techcrunch story here. read the comments as well very interesting.

vodpod test

March 22, 2007

ok…i have to admit i love what heavy is doing with ron jeremy and i am not the only one. i have seen this videos starting to pop-up everywhere. with that said i been wanting to do something with vodpod for a while and these videos give me a good chance to test. i created a vodpod for the clips and embedded on the sidebar below.

only thing i dont like so far is that it does not show the thumbnails all the time.

tell me what you think.
