First of all, I wanted to say how much I've been enjoying the final presentations we've seen so far. Really interesting stuff! I also think it would be super cool if those of you whose projects are available online would post links so we can check 'em out. (Or if you already have, could you shoot me the link anyway? I might've missed it.)
I finally got my own video project online last night, and I'm looking forward to presenting it on Wednesday. It took me a whole month to complete but I'm really happy with the finished product! I'm also happy that it's already being well-received in the online world, with 115 views and 15 comments in the first 12 hours it's been up.
It is posted on both YouTube and imeem (I'll expand more on this during my presentation), but I just wanted to mention something I noticed about the two sites in the posting process. I know imeem has recently become more popular for vidders like myself, and this is definitely partly because it is much more aesthetically pleasing than YouTube. However, I also noticed that imeem has taken big steps towards ease of intermediation. When you're watching a video there is a whole row of buttons under it that allows you to easily:
a) "Add To My"
- Black Planet
b) "Blog This To"
Pretty impressive, if you ask me! And definitely a step towards expanding the travels of viral videos through cyberspace... ok, must save more thoughts for my actual presentation. ;)
