Western Spaghetti

I just love this clever video created by Adam Pesapane, a digital artist in New York City, which incidentally was also one of Times Magazine’s Top 10 Viral Video picks for 2008. The entire video was created using the stop motion animation technique, and besides looking cool, I can definitely detect a political message that [...]


FNB Embraces YouTube

It’s always great to see old instituitons adopting new media (see my earlier post about the 10 Downing Street Channel) and South African bank, FNB, has become the latest blue-chip company to create their own YouTube Channel called FNBTV, which launched on 1 June 2008.

The vid was apparently spotted by Bath supporters [...]


Double-whammy for bloggers this past week

First of all there was the case of a former employee, who worked for the same holding company as me, that was dismissed [...]


You’ve got to love social media

Just imagine if we had never been exposed to the YouTube Zeitgeist:


Viddler on my roof

Viddler is a new video sharing service which I came across the other day and I would go so far as to say that it could become a serious challenger to Youtube in the online video space. Why you ask? The first noticeable reason is it’s very clever and intuitive video interface which allows you [...]
