Collect your YouTube videos with WorldTV

When Alx Klive, WorldTV‘s CEO, visited me last week I thought his idea for building a video channel was a bit, um, unfinished. After playing with the technology I still think that of the public site it builds (here’s mine, which consists of the videos I just collected into my library) but I LOVE being able to collect videos from YouTube and other sites into a library.

Anyway, in this video we talk about WorldTV and his new company that’s going after a new video aggregation market.

One nice thing about the public channel it creates is that YouTube’s videos now are full screen. Plus it has search feature so you can search a variety of engines like AOL and YouTube from inside your video library. Makes it easier to find new things you’d like to add to your show.

Irish coffees with the Irish tech entrepreneurs

Have you ever had an “Irish Coffee?” Did you know it’s not Irish at all? Well, it was invented in San Francisco. Ooopsss, turns out it was invented in Ireland but popularized by the bar in San Francisco.

So, when I heard that “Paddy’s Valley” (a group of Irish tech entrepreneurs) was coming to San Francisco I knew I HAD to take them to where the Irish Coffee was brought to America, Buena Vista.

Even better: you’re invited! 8 p.m. next Monday, December 3rd at the Buena Vista bar. Be there and be Irish. San Francisco style.

Oh, and wait until the Chinese come to town and learn that the Chinese Fortune Cookie was invented here too. 🙂

If you’re coming, please leave a comment here.

Who’s the idiot…

…who thought I belonged on this panel discussion tonight of smart media people who’ve done a lot more in their careers than me?

My prediction? There will be another new iPhone in 2008 and it will have a video camera and an open SDK.

Yeah, I’m not taking too many risks there am I? Heheh.

It’ll be interesting to see what kinds of predictions this panel, which includes journalists from BusinessWeek, CNBC, Wall Street Journal, Forbes, makes. PodTech is filming it, so will have the video up in the next few days.

My other prediction? That I’ll be the stupidest one on this panel. I’ll try to keep up.
