Ten video sharing services compared - DV Guru
Comparison of ten sites when you can upload videos. Conclusions:
If you just want to get a video clip online and share it with friends via email or on your own blog, Vimeo wins for its speed, ease-of-use, and simple playback functions.
If you want to step up to more community features and get widespread viewership of your viral clip, YouTube gets the job done with a lot less hassle than vSocial or Grouper.
If you want to alter your video online in any way--through editing, remixing, or combining your clips with those from other users--then head on over to Jumpcut and don't look back.

Distributed Learning
You may be aware that Stephen Downes is taking a break from producing OLDaily. However, he is still presenting and is as thought provoking as ever. I found his presentation in Tennessee as good as ever. You can download the MP3 file (11M) and there is also a PowerPoint presentation. There is not much new in the PowerPoint but there are some good ideas in the audio. Well worth a listen.

The article quoted 3G networks as having speeds of 2 megabits per second but in Australia we are a long way from achieving that level of speed (unfortunately).
