Talking Heads – Burning Down The House/Life During Wartime

Words can’t describe….

…. how good this is!

Which is ironic seeing as Erin’s bread and butter is a trade in words.

Here’s the TED blog about her talk.

Excellent!!! Sony Bravia Paint ad – what happened next…

YouTube Fest – Part IV

YouTube Fest – Part I

Aspect ratio anyone? – Part II

Same clip as previously – but this time uploaded by Baby Cow Productions, the independent producers of the tv series Ideal, and they also have a YouTube Channel.

 Note  – proper aspect ratio and allows embedding!

Now, I was assuming that the BBC was preventing embedding of their content – as it tries to restrict the YouTube BBC channel to UK only viewers – but this just makes a mockery of that!

Oh, and by the way, it also makes the BBC look completely stupid as well – not only can the BBC not do the aspect ratio properly but they also unnecessarily prevent people from embedding (which in this inept instance might be a good thing) the clip which was on YouTube 5 days before the BBC uploaded it.

I am embarrassed to work for this company!

Aspect ratio anyone?

From the BBC’s official YouTube Channel – can the BBC figure out 16:9?

Oh – and btw – disabling embedding on the YouTube page  – WTF!

The weird thing is  – the BBC recently announced a deal with YouTube, to host their own channel and make programmes available – but this isn’t available there.

Now, if there was one programme that would be uploaded religiously, surely it would be the flagship technology programme!

Just……Too…..Funny! – Re-revisited

A previous post now is redundant.

A video of The Daily Show has been deleted from the YouTube site.

The post remains unadulterated to be historically correct.
