Microchunks: short online media clips
Erik Schonfeld, writing in this month's Business 2.0, has a good take on both the commercialization and free distribution of short media clips using examples of Jon Stewart's CNN "hurting America" clip, etc. I have written before about my desire to see more "grass roots" media development since I am more than tired of what mainstream media offers up ('reality TV' - yuck!). Here are a few links that are worth checking out: Sundance Festival, iFilm, YouTube.com, and Google video.
I have been having lots of fun posting my pictures on Flickr and when I have time I have been thinking of "down editing" some of my video works to very short segments and decide on which public web portal to use.
