May 17th, 2008 · Comments Off on Seesmic goes celeb crazy

Things got very exciting this morning on Seesmic, the video conversation site, as a few of the regular posters got to interview some MASSIVE cinema celebs at the Cannes film festival… Something v. interesting occured, but as this is a post about seesmic, I think I’ll use seesmic to comment on it – and you can use seesmic to comment back, whether or not you’re logged in – via the link at the bottom of this post. {seesmic_video:{“url_thumbnail”:{“value”:”http://t.seesmic.com/thumbnail/WA5KOeAjm5_th1.jpg”}”title”:{“value”:”Seesmic goes celeb crazy “}”videoUri”:{“value”:”http://www.seesmic.com/video/fn9WLeaa9q”}}}

There you go – what fun! Please do add a video or a text comment, especially if you were part of the Seesmic frenzy this morning – what fun that was!

Free documentaries to watch online…

November 18th, 2007 · Comments Off on Free documentaries to watch online…

Lo. just found this site – FreeDocumentaries.org – loads of streamable/downloadable docs, including SuperSize Me, Fahrenheit 9/11, Bowling For Columbine and a couple of episodes of Morgan Spurlock’s ’30 days’ series. Plus lots of other great stuff, and a couple of things that look like crack-pot conspiracy movies which should be good for a laugh.

Days and Days of quality brain food!
