    Thanks for adopting this topic (and related issues) as your blog; with the presidential campaign season approaching, online video and emerging legal issues will be all the more relevant. –Looking forward to your observations.

    Come on, where’s the connecting link? I had to track you down through one of your students!

    Love the new focus…it’s on my daily list now (also recently added:Fark…I love creative people who stay informed!)

  6. I’m really enjoying your blog! There’s a new service called vodpod.com where you can collect your videos from YT in one place, and then add a wordpress widget to show those videos in a “combined player”. Might be useful here.

    Oprah Having a Channel on Youtube?

    Being in the “Older Generation” I grew up with out the internet, computers and anything digital. To my way of thinking – (Sorry Oprah), Oprah belongs in a past media era. That was the era of sitting back and watching, listening or reading a very edited, scripted and highly “produced “mass media product. Looking back, that experience was like Fast Food for the mind – it filled you up, but left you intellectually empty and wanting shortly therafter.

    Platforms like Youtube & others provide an opp. for everyone to say what they want to say, and how they want to say it. It’s active rather than passive and so, so much more Democratic. Who wants to be told how to Think, Act & Feel, by Production Executives?

    Should Oprah Winfrey be on you tube? Sure she should!, But she can plug in her digital camera, add comments and upload her Videos just like the rest of us.

    I think you might find our new service interesting –


    Video-Alerts is a simple service that allows you to get email notifications when new videos are available, using keywords (or by uploading user). The service is free and currently supports YouTube only.



  13. I have a video on youtube about the “utube.com” company sueing “youtube.com” and it has close to 900,000 views now.
