"Angus asked me to contribute to curate.tv, which was fun. It's a nice thing; "Desert Island Discs for internet video". Putting it together reminded me of Kim's video from Interesting which is easily the most powerful of my selection.
Partly because of the subject, partly because of Kim's incredible delivery but partly, also, because it's not a straight video of the talk. It's the slide show she used for the talk (a stream of images) plus the audio straight from the PA mic. This seems more 'natively internet' than any of the others. A stream of images + a stream of audio. Slideshow + podcast. It fits more naturally with my sense of 'media in a browser' than a retransmission of a music video or a film of a talk. Jenn Schiffer's talk, for instance, was clearly brilliant in real life, but succeeds on YouTube despite the medium, not because of it. It still really succeeds though. Well worth watching. They all are."
