Holy RipMix! What is a Blog?

Web video is exploding, and more than just hosting and tagging clips with exploding soda bottles… Check out this re-mixed clip from the Weblog Project called What is a Blog? The 50 Second Answer:

This is a great remix that really shows how much more impact and insight a short well edited clip can do in helping others get, in less than a minute, a good idea of what a blog really is.

Jumpcut.Remixed by Alessandro Luccardi on Jumpcut.

Sorry, I pretty much lifted the flash source code from the original site. But it is to make a point….

Now this is what gets exciting. Click the “remix” button in the video above. You get all of the vido segments in a timeline, ripe for adding, re-re-mixing, etc. I’ve casually seen a few of these online media mashup tools, and they keep getting more interesting.

Jumpcut…. it must be the 500th cool web tool out this year. Keep the train comin’.

  1. Alan, You have some stuff about 3D and concept mapping in cogdogblog.
    You might like 3D Topicscape – a 3D concept mapper capable of holding files, web page and notes.
    I’m sorry I couldn’t see a way of attaching this to a relevant post, but it does seem relevant to some of your interests.

  2. You scooped the New York Times by a couple of days. The Times today has an article on jumpcut.com and other Web based video editing services.

    I found your short writeup + example more informative though.
