StumbleUpon, the video

Mikhail Gershovich forwarded me a great video via, I immediately realized he found the cartoon through Stumble Upon’s relatively new video referral feature (it was released in early December 2006 was discussed on Tech Crunch here). I have been doing some thinking about video on the web recently for some upcoming projects, and this has been a fun tool to play with. Below is the feed of the latest videos I have stumbled upon.

    Hmmm… now if only there was some sort of venue or conference for you to share your impressions of Stumbleupon and online video?

    Nothing coming to mind… I think I heard something once about a user-driven web video dance party meets YouTube, with a little WordTube, MediaWiki, rss mash-up or something. I don’t know the ideas are bigger than me, I’m just a patsy.

    Thanks, Jim. Much obliged.

    Thanks for the comment. Given that you work for StumbleUpon, I was hoping you would consider something. One thing SU might consider rolling out is a more sophisticated RSS feed for their users. Namely, the RSS feed in this post will track all my latest Stumbles marked as favorite, but beyond that I can’t target the feed to produce more granular results. It would be awesome if I could filter my feeds by category or keyword so that I can keep stumbling, while knowing my RSS feeds are reflecting a more variegated and nuanced portrait of my stumblings. Just an idea.

    You know I love cac.ophony, but when are you gonna start your own damn blog. Your post on the peregrine falcon was so mint, as are most of your ideas. Stop holding out on me! Thanks for the video and the SU goodness.
