eyespot - Pyromaniac clip

I have been testing out for our Testing-Grounds review site. Here's a clip, actually 2 clips that I 'mixed' together using eyespot.

It's a snappy site that allows you to uloaded clips and mix them with your clips or other peoples. Long live the mash-up!

They are still in beta (isn't everyone these days?) and plan to add transitions and fades...should be cool.

Check it out, and leave a comment here or on the Testing-Grounds site.

Online video sharing site reviews

[Cross-posted on]

Hot off the press: TestingGrounds at

Thanks to Deirdre Straughan's work, we've collected all of her video sharing site reviews and created a place for them for users and site providers to provide feedback about those services.  You can subscribe to any site review's comments with your RSS aggregator to stay up to date with the latest feedback.

We will be adding to the reviews as time goes on.  Send in any information you might have for a site that we don't have listed already.

Special thanks to Anne for carrying all that content over, it was a lot of work!  We hope this will provide users who are lookiing for a place to park their content with a nice list of reviews so they don't have to find out the hard way which site might be better for them.

Loadedpun - a new project

Anne and I have started It's actually been released to the wild and wooly web for two weeks now. It's a blog, like this one (technically this one is a vlog or video-blog) where we talk about new stuff in the realm of blogs, vlogs and video goodness.

It's going along nicely as we are starting to make connections in the online video world. Our aim is to provide a nice place for people that are just starting to videoblog as well as have interesting content for those that have been doing it for a while. We also feature information about other online video that doesn't have anything to do with videoblogging.

I take care of the technical side of things. I hacked together a wordpress template for the first time (we wanted our own look and feel, not the vanilla wordpress templates) which was cool...and I even wrote my first wordpress plug-in (the this week thing on loadedpun that shows the posts for current week) Nothing special, just some php and mysql database interaction with a dash of wordpress functions in for good measure...but that's new stuff for me so it's cool.

So when I am not working on Mefeedia with Peter and Mike, it's loadedpun that takes the rest of my time on the 'puter.

...btw, stay tuned to Mefeedia's blog, I am giving it a facelift tonight ;)
