90% Of Web Traffic Is Video

There’s a lot of talk about the prediction from YouTube’s Robert Kyncl that video will be 90% of internet traffic. This sounds shocking until you realize it’s not, and doesn’t really mean much in context of the internet. This number presumably is at least partially based on a prediction by Cisco who makes routers that […]

Girl With A Funny Talent

One of the more recent internet sensations I just haven’t found the time to post. A follow-up video here. Even a Facebook page to request songs (according to the follow-up video). Credit where it’s due, she’s taken a silly talent to a viral sensation and managed to package it up into a YouTube account and […]

5 Year Old Needs A Job Before Getting Married

Here is today’s cute/amusing video. I have a small suspicion her mother or father planted the seed in her head. Also amusing is the follow up video where she professes her admiration for Seinfeld, the desire to write jokes, despite the fact that “nobody laughs at me” and the need “for someone to tweet me”.

Atomic Tom’s “Take Me Out” Subway Video

Here’s an interesting video that went viral over the past few days. Brooklyn based band Atomic Tom’s instruments allegedly were stolen. Their resolve led them to use their iPhones and film a music video on the subway using their phones as instruments. Or so the story goes. I’m not sure if it’s a viral sensation […]

Sexing Up Your Towwwwwnnnn

Second viewing, you’re thinking “this is kinda funny”. Viewings 3-10, you know now this is hilarious. After 15-25 viewings, you wonder if you have a problem. […]

YouTube HTML5 + Firefox

Google has been a long time supporter of HTML5. They recently launched a HTML5 beta of YouTube however it will only work in Safari and Chrome. The reason for this is not due to the actual markup but the video codec chosen. YouTube is using h.264, the same codec used for YouTube HD via Flash. […]

Google Goes HTML5

I just noticed that Google is now serving it’s homepage with an HTML5 doctype: < !doctype html> I suspect this might have changed when they launched that new fade effect. I also noticed they are doing so when using the new YouTube “Feather” beta. This shouldn’t be too surprising considering their involvement in the HTML5 […]

Surprised Kitty

I’m amazed how quickly this stuff can get around the web. I’m pretty sure this is what Vint Cerf and Bob Kahn had in mind when working on TCP/IP.

YouTube Recommends

Thanks YouTube for that recommendation of assorted animals mating. I also enjoyed the horse sperm harvesting video.
