Slideshows are boring. Your images are not.

Animoto 100% Kick AssWith all that’s possible with TV & film these days, how is it that we are still in the “next slide please” stone age of image presentation?

This question prompted the guys at Animoto Productions, a bunch of TV/film producers and techies, to lock themselves in a room and nerd-out. Their mission? To make the type of stuff they did while producing shows at MTV, Comedy Central & ABC available to everyone. Their first release, Animoto, does just that.

Animoto users simply choose which images they’d like to display and a song. Animoto then produces a fully customized & unique video to them. Produced in a widescreen format, the result is a video that has the visual energy of a music video and the emotional impact of a movie trailer.

Welcome to the end of slideshows.

Best of all, no two videos are ever the same. Ever. Even videos generated with an identical set of images and music selection will each have an entirely distinct set of motion design.

Learn Poetry Online

Learn Poetry Online
Learn Poetry
Fast, Easy, Completely Free

Thanks to the internet many people who would previously been too embarassed to write and showcase poetry can do it without hesitation. They can anonomously post their work to get the critique and praise they would like to hear from their peers.

It’s a wonderful thing that people can freely express themselves and their hobbies, but with all of that newfound talent and beauty, their is also a downside. There are more and more people who have no clue what the true meaning of poetry is. They can rhyme words, but they can’t do what the real poets do. Make the reader feel emotion, feel what the poet feels. They cannot paint a picture in the readers mind, they cannot change someones view on life with an expertly crafted crusade of emotions, that is what a true poet does. Continue reading

StumbleUpon Exchange

My friend Luke has just unveiled a new web site called StumbleUpon Exchange.

If you’re not familiar with StumbleUpon, it’s a toolbar for your web browser that allows you to rate web sites and to also view web sites which other StumbleUpon members have rated.

As a visitor, StumbleUpon can provide you with almost endless amusement as you are taken to web sites which you would not otherwise be able to find. As a webmaster, StumbleUpon can be an incredibly effective tool for building web traffic.

StumbleUpon Exchange is a web site where webmasters can trade “Stumbles” with each other, which will result in increased traffic to both web sites.

I receive thousands of visitors from StumbleUpon every month. If you’re a webmaster, I recommend that you check out Luke’s new site.
