Vimeo Awards
Vimeo’s video awards were yesterday, sadly I missed them. The brilliant video below won best in show and I would have missed it had it not been for +C.C. Chapman.

At last night’s Vimeo Awards, this video took home the best in show. 

I remember the first time I watched it. Super simple subject, but told so perfectly.

6 Months of Security Links #2011

leave a comment »

I’m a regular curator of daily links, and like to give overviews of my collection of curated links and posts. This is partly as there are some good sources and articles in here and as I am working on a research project which I started based on a number of books I read.

I’m sure you’ll find something interesting in the items below – there are some gems in the list – and I dare to hazard the guess you might learn something you wanted to know. 🙂

Programming Hands

In 2010 I was less focussed on programming articles on the blog than previous years, still I have managed to create some interesting articles with code in 2010. This is an overview of the activity:

Is Folksonomy part of Citizen Marketing? #seo

with one comment

Simple answer: YES!

Seriously, if a group of people collaboratively generate online content that “[…] categorize content such as Web pages, online photographs, and Web links” that’s . When I blog about or tag a product or company I’m creating a category for it. An “xbox” tag on the Microsoft homepage is a label, but tagging it with “crap” is a judgement call. If enough people tagging blogs with “xbox” and “crap” a search of the tag will allow you to refine the results with “+crap“. That’s Citizen Marketing!

Even more serious, if people don’t tag the Microsoft website with “xbox“, “game” or “console” a search on these terms will turn up everything but the Microsoft website. That’s Citizen Marketing!

Here’s an interesting clip I found on Church of the Customer Blog:

YouTube Channel Unsubscribe #bookmarklet

with 2 comments

I like , and often subscribe to new channels and unsubscribe after a while. There is a lot of good stuff on YouTube, and a lot of rubbish. YouTube has been smart in making it possible to easily add channels, and in my opinion they have put less thought into making it easy to leave the channels. In the case of multiple channels I would either need to go to each of the channels and remove them one by one, or I would go to My Feeds / My Subscriptions and remove them one by one from there. In both cases I need to modify the subscription settings shown below.

Editing the YouTube channel subscription

My issue with this is not that it takes a long time, although that is certainly a small factor. Or that having subscription management for a channel is overkill when I just want to leave a channel. Personally I believe that it should be manageable from one page, just push of a button, like subscribing. And it wasn’t, until today.

YouTube to end-of-life IE6 support March 13 #youtube #ie

leave a comment »

I use Microsoft’s Internet Explorer 6 to run Adobe Flash, in a sandbox, it’s they only place that I run Flash. (If I’m going to be unsafe, I might as well be really exposed.) Today I saw for the first time during a slow load that they are dropping support for IE6.

On March 13, we are dropping support for your browser.

The father of a friend of mine, a former journalist, started as an outlet for him to bitch about misleading or stupid adverts. A great idea, geared to the Dutch market where the word kut means cunt, although it is considered a far less profane than the English, more towards shit or crap.

With the integration of YouTube and some fixes to the forum it is sure to be a fun community to hang out with.
