Could Google please pace it's insane offerings a little more, giving me SOME HOPE of keeping up?
Alright, it's my own fault for not checking the Google Blog. But still.Google now has video search
Google now wants to serve your video
. That's right, folks, Google might provide a space for you to sell video. Maybe even provide it for free. I have to read the whole entire FAQ to get the details. But Google wants to create a space to sell your video!!
If this actually works out, it will mean that you don't need to be part of a a tv station or a corporation or even a well funded nonprofit to get any kind of (non-pornographic) content you want out there for distribution, for everyone to see
. You can already serve up all the text and audio and pictures on blogger and flickr, without worrying about bandwidth. Video on google video just completes the list. Freedom of the press really belongs to those who have one--but now everyone with an internet connection has a press and a broadcast station. No need for intense capital expenditures to say your say. All you need to do is make the content and get people to come and watch it. A true free market of expression. That's pretty cool.
Check it out people.
