Most Discusting Video Frame Ever


Okay this frame is so discusting I can't believe I'm giving it anymore attention than it already has as a Revver video. I'm not making it clickable, because you really don't need to see the video behind it. Grosssssssss!

Best Quote Ever from a Revver Video

Jolie Blond wins the Revverberation Award for best quote ever in a Revver video:
"The woman is so screwed up the state forces her to blow a Ford Taurus every morning."

Google Starts Coops (Co-Ops)... Today at 4:00

So today is the annual day of Google news… at 4:00 EST they announce a big offering. Our roving reporters at Revverberation have discovered it's a "Coop" that Google is offering that "combining Google's algorithms with topics created by unique context, knowledge, and expertise of individuals." I'm not sure I understand this, and I can't find any information about it. Maybe I'm breaking the story here? A first-time exclusive for Revverberation?

But I think this is the real story. Burried in this article is the theory that part of Google's recent problems with indexing is because… Google's full. Sorry folks. Come back next year with your giant video files; we don't have any more room for your site. Sorry folks. Park's closed. Moose out front should have told you.

Revverberation's Future

There is some exciting news coming from Revver that will greatly enhance the community of Revverites, and provide ways for us to interact in a much more collaborative way. Details to follow, and this could mean that Revverberation.com may soon have outlived its utility (or at the least change shape). I got a sneak preview into what Revver is building and it's way, way cooler than this blog. I don't see ditching Revverberation right away but I know Revver's new offering is a better one than the blog you're reading.

In the meantime, I've set up a separate blog that continue to be as pro-Revver as ever. But it will also explore other models that are emerging to help video creators earn income on their work (other sites, contests, etc.). There is only so much you can cover on an unofficial blog about one site, and I hope this can broaden the appeal to people obsessed about online videos -- even those that haven't yet discovered Revver.

Please visit the new www.WillVideoForFood.com (also accessed at http://nalts.wordpress.com/). I set it up last week on Blogger, but moved it over to WordPress because it's a little easier to use and comes highly endorsed by blog junkies. Be sure to RSS it for easy updates.

Inside Revver!

My wife brought back some short MPEG video clips from her sister's still camera, and here's my attempt to package it into "Inside Revver." Some neat shots of the offices and a few staff members.

The World of Online Videos is Still Small


Before long, we amateur video fools will be overrun online by people with studio connections, full time jobs, and a bit of talent. But for the meantime, it's a small world. For instance, here's a funny video (Coffee Sports Drink) from TroopDotCom.com:

So after you enjoy this, try visiting TroopDotCom's video page, and look briefly at the third video -- called Bad Baby. Now is just me, or is the Bad Baby actress the same one from the old Revver classic below? If anyone knows who she is, please give us her number so we can prank call her.
