Hm, more food for my video iPod which hasn't arrived yet.
Revver ("a Flickr for video") is a new video publishing community site which allows you to upload, share, watch, and tag videos for free. You need a special upload tool for uploading videos (there's a Windows version, a MacOS X version, and a Java version which probably works on Linux).
They intend to give the creators of the videos some money by attaching a clickable advertisement frame (the so-called RevTag™) at the end of each video. Everytime a viewer clicks the ad, the video creator gets some money. While this might be a great idea, it still leaves me with a strange feeling (the ad is not on a webpage, it's appended to the video itself!)...

A final quote from the blog post:
It’s a new game, we’re thrilled to be in it, and we tip our hats bigtime to the Ourmedia crew, the YouTube crew, the Participatory Culture crew, the Creative Commons crew, and all the other crews that came before us.
All in all this looks quite promising, and I'm curious how it will develp and grow...

Interesting idea: create art (poems, haikus, fiction, ...) using tags from social tagging sites like del.icio.us, flickr, or technorati. A first example is available on flickr: an event invitation using tags.
OMFG! Only yesterday I said there's no really nice Flash website out there. I might have to reconsider.

Funny new stuff. Tell me how you like it.
