When I write articles I often look for media – videos, audio, etc. to support the content I write. The additional content provides some entertainment value, while still driving the point home for others to remember. I’ve seen this similar technique used by other bloggers such as MG Siegler, Chris Messina, and others. While at CES last week, I had the opportunity to meet with the founders of MovieClips, a company that makes it easy to share these little quotes in video form in a nice, legal, and searchable format. Check out what they do in their Intro video below:
MovieClips is such an easy service to find any clip you like and share it with friends. The most significant use for me though is the ability to add a little “Pizazz” to my blog posts. I can’t wait to start diving in as I write future blog posts to add a little “spice” with entertainment using their service.
Of note, the reason I was holding my iPhone was because I was recording the interview on CinchCast.com to upload immediately after the interview. It turned out to be a great way to get an additional, high quality MP3 of the interview, as well as a close-to-live upload of the interview shortly after it occured.
Disclosure: I have consulted for MovieClips in the past
