Hey, to each their own. If you want to see YouTube content, then YouTube is the place for that. Now, if you want to see content from all over the web delivered to you in a consistent interface with cinematic controls and the ability to sync to portable devices.... well web-based won't do that for you.
Sending a link to your video to your mom is likely the best bet... but, to get all videos from your mom and your friends in one place, syndication is a pretty efficient model for that. I have well over a hundred videoblogs that I keep track of in FireAnt. That ain't bad. -josh On 10/6/05, aroundtheperimeter <[EMAIL PROTECTED]> wrote: > That is why I'm saying a HYBRID version of Youtube and FireAnt would > be awesome!
