Has everyone already seen this before me? That would be typical. A bit of Internet history just in case, like me, you had not run across this nearly 14-year-old job listing before. Via The Wensingnator.
Pfft, like I know. But four days ago I uploaded a 90-second clip of our cat Pokeweed sitting upright to both Flickr and YouTube. Not a whole lot going on there, just a strange clip of our strange cat behaving a little strangely. The YouTube version has been viewed 28 times. The Flickr version has been viewed 1,057 times, has been marked a favorite by 44 people and has attracted 20 comments. (And the embedded version looks great when the control bar disappears, nothing but the image.)
Maybe Flickr is just a particularly cat-friendly environment. Flickr users really do seem to like their cats, after all. Could just be that video is still a novelty there. Or maybe there really is something interesting to Flickr’s concept of less-than-90-second videos as “a long photo.”
No great revelations, just an observation. And an excuse, as if I needed one, to post yet another picture of my cat.
How’s the real estate market here in South Florida? Still ever so slightly short of robust, judging by the sales data we’re feeding Backyard Post. Consider:
EPIC FAIL! Or, as Sholin might put it: “Oh, now that’s just a greasy 20-piece bucket of FAIL right there.” First!
The lever on my gigantic Paper View Monday machine has been jammed on “Florida” for a full five weeks now, and hasn’t spit out a western newspaper building since February. I think it’s sorted now, however, so let’s jet off to Salem, Oregon for a look at the Statesman Journal in Virtual Earth/Live Maps. Trivia I still find a little amazing: The Statesman Journal in 2006 won first place in the general excellence category of the state Better Newspaper Contest, two places ahead of a paper six times its size. Take that, you light rail-riding hippies.
Here’s a very special moving-picture Flickr video edition of random picture of my cat. Ninety seconds of Pokeweed sitting upright and staring, with a few glimpses of the camera-shy Belle. Pokeweed! Moving! Belle too! Cats! Video! Geekery! Huzzah!
