Quality Comparison on YouTube vs. Flickr Video

Monday, April 14th, 2008

YouTube is not the only kid on the block when it comes to online video. Eliminating “real” file formats from Apple and Microsoft, there are a ton of Flash based sites out there. Some are better than others. For the most part YouTube has held its own, maintaining the highest visibility and giving its parent, Google, a lot of exposure.

Finally, at nearly the same market level as Google, another player has stepped in using its own highly recognizable and oft copied brands. Yahoo!‘s Flickr now has the ability to create “long pictures” which is just a fancy way of saying video. Limiting users to 90 seconds, marketed as a creativity enhancer, it is not trying to be a complete replacement to YouTube but with nearly every digital camera on the market today featuring the ability to shoot video, Flickr is easily one of the best “One-stop-shops” in digital imagery and sharing.

Entertaining Johnny Depp » Japan Probe

I found this on Boing Boing last night. I’m a big fan of Johnny Depp and I know that he is a weird dude, but when someone (or an entire culture) can out weird him I am always surprised.

I’ve included the YouTube vids below the jump.

I guess that I should tell you about this…

It happened a while ago now, but when posting, better late then never.

The Ring

Several months ago, I finally go up the courage to propose. It was a nice thing, and because it was nice, the full detail does not belong on this site. I’m not really big on nice, but she’s slowly grinding that away. (notice the kinder, gentler site design, the happier dead bunny head and the actual presence of color.)

Needless to say I did it in my own way. You can see the end product at calmlyfaltering.com. The speech is nice, but the image has be described as creepy.

Oh, well. I wasn’t really going for the fluffy dead bunny head for that one. Other than a little more spit and polish, I think it turned out rather well.

Anyway, it happened, and we are now in that stage of fighting over gender roles.

[EDIT: Dec 13 2007] The calmlyfaltering.com website is no longer as it was, however there is a version of the video that was on the site on youtube.
